After a two-year break, Adria Tehnika – a Slovenian branch of Avia Prime Group – has reopened its doors to anyone who is in an early stage of choosing their career and has a burning passion for aviation.
Open Day in Adria Tehnika’s base at Joze Pucnik Airport brought over 100 young, curious high school and university students. During the event, visitors went through different work environments and had the opportunity to learn about aircraft base maintenance. On top of that, the students found out about the role of support workshops, learned about an aircraft engine, and had a chance to sit in the cockpit.
– I am glad that so many young people showed interest and attended this event. We already are preparing the second Open Day to be able to host even more students. The profession of an aircraft mechanic is a promising career path, as there is a global shortage of licensed technicians. The business forecasts also predict the need for aviation personnel will continue to grow over the next 20 years. We have managed to show so many different careers in aviation. We hope we will inspire our young guests and we will meet them again in the future – said Barbara Perko Brvar, Deputy CEO of Adria Tehnika.
What impressed the visitors, among other things, was the fact that Adria Tehnika has its own Technical Training Department, where employees can be educated and thus obtain the international licenses required to perform work on aircraft.
–The fact that we were able to reorganize an event such as the Open Day was great news for us, as it is extremely important that we can show young people how special and unique is to work at MRO. I believe that such events are necessary because they aid to guide young people and help them make important decisions about their career paths – concluded Piotr Kaczor, CEO of Avia Prime Group and Adria Tehnika.
