Seven Cayman Airways aircraft maintenance staff have obtained new qualifications.
Four of Cayman Airways’ senior aircraft mechanics recently upgraded their qualifications to aircraft maintenance technicians and three aircraft maintenance technicians have upgraded their qualifications to aircraft maintenance engineers.
The newly qualified aircraft maintenance technicians are Sidney Miller, William ‘Bill’ Jackson, Rodriques ‘Rod’ Watler and Kenny Prendergast who all recently received their FAA Airframe and Powerplant Technician Licence. This FAA licence serves as the foundation to become further qualified as aircraft maintenance engineers with the authority to issue Certificates of Release to Service for the Boeing 737 jets operated by Cayman Airways, explained a press release.
Vice President of Maintenance and Engineering, Mr. Fabian Whorms says, ‘In order to sit the FAA licence examinations in the USA, the candidates combined several years of practical experience with academic training conducted mostly on site at Cayman Airways by Mr. Pete Osborn, manager of Aircraft Maintenance Training.
The recently qualified aircraft maintenance engineers are Bruce MacMillan, Christopher McCoy and Melford Solomon who already held FAA Airframe and Powerplant Technician licences and successfully upgraded their qualifications to issue Certificates of Release to Service after gaining the required level of experience and successfully completing very detailed courses and examinations specific to the Boeing 737 aircraft and procedural requirements.
