A modern aircraft is chock-full of the latest technology: thousands of components, all of which are vitally important. In order to inspect and maintain all this we have a large maintenance division with a very varied range of functions.

Positions in technology

Werken in de techniek

At KLM, technology-related jobs at mbo (intermediate vocational education), hbo (higher vocational education) and wo (scientific education) level are found mainly in the Engineering & Maintenance division. The hangars, the engine shop and other workshops are the daily work environment of a large number of technical staff and specialists, such as aircraft mechanics, engineers, ground mechanics, certified staff and even chemical technologists. And don't forget sheet metal workers, painters and electrical instrument makers. All these professions are involved in the day-to-day maintenance of aircraft. The physical work environment is often on or around the aircraft and in the hangars.
