On-the-job training

The tail section is part of the airframe components of an aircraft, which comprises of the wings, tail section, fuselage, and landing gear.

By the end of the course, mechanic is expected to

  • Be able to repair the airframe components

  • Troubleshoot and determine what need to be done

  • Be able to identify any problem in the tail section and come up with solutions

  • Be able to determine what tools are needed for a particular task.

  • Be able to make sound decisions regarding any problem ( Airbus Helicopters Training Services, 2015)

Under web-based training, the trainees are expected to learn the requirements and regulations as stated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The basics of the training will also be available on the website.

Once the trainee is familiar with the requirements and regulations and the basics, Instructor-led classroom training will be done. In this kind of training, the trainees are expected to ask any questions that they may have from the online materials provided. The key concepts of the course will be discussed in the classroom. This will be an interactive class. The trainer will be explaining the concepts and trainees are expected to contribute to class discussions. For trainees to understand the structure of the tail section, models will be provided.

The classroom based training will be combined with simulator training. After the class, trainees are expected to have a better understanding of the course. To prepare them for the hands-on experience, simulated training will be done. The main benefit of this is to optimize live training and to train tasks that seem to be dangerous to train in a live condition (Brian, 2014). Trainees will be exposed to the various tasks like troubleshooting, test skills, visual inspections of the tailfin, tailplane and part of the fuselage to confirm their conditions.

After the simulated training, the trainees are expected to be ready to handle tasks in the real world. On the job training will be practical based. After every module, skills test will be offered to trainees.
