Airbus and HAECO to Establish Airbus Maintenance Training Services Collaboration in Hong Kong
Airbus and HAECO Group have entered into a long term strategic agreement to provide maintenance and engineering training in mainland China and Southeast Asia. Through this collaboration, HAECO, headquartered in Hong Kong and one of the world’s leading aircraft engineering and maintenance groups, will deploy the ‘Training by Airbus’ standards, dynamic tools and teaching techniques to provide Aircraft *OEM backed maintenance training capabilities to its personnel and to third party personnel in the region.
