Are you interested in working with the latest technology and love to tinker with mechanical things? Consider a traineeship as an aircraft mechanic!

Working as an Aircraft Mechanic trainee

Stage als vliegtuigmonteur

During your traineeship, you will be involved directly with aviation safety. The work is both rewarding and challenging. You assist with maintaining various types of aircraft used by KLM and other airlines and, in doing so, work with the latest and most sophisticated technology.

Thanks to your meticulous eye for detail, you perform your work activities within the set time limit and according to the quality requirements, guidelines and client specifications. Your tasks are assigned based on task cards and are authorised by a Ground Aircraft Engineer.


KLM offers various traineeship positions each year. If you are interested in one of these, you have to meet the following requirements: you have a degree from an Intermediate Vocational educational programme in Aircraft Engineering, a good command of spoken and written Dutch and English, the ability to work in a team, a flexible attitude and good communication skills.


Can you already picture yourself working in the hangar, in one of the shops or on the platform next season? If so, talk to the Traineeship Coordinator at your school.
