Become an Aircraft Mechanic at Cargolux!
Cargolux currently employs around 350 highly skilled aircraft mechanics who play a vital role in our organization. These dedicated professionals maintain and repair our fleet of 29 Boeing 747 freighters and the aircraft of our maintenance customers.
Our mechanics have solid primary qualifications complemented by extensive on-the-job training. Many of them were trained at our home base in Luxembourg and obtained their internationally recognized EASA Aircraft Maintenance License Part-66 (AML) by following a Cargolux sponsored curriculum at the Lycée Privé Emile Metz in Luxembourg-City.
If you are interested in joining the program and become a qualified aircraft mechanic, you must fulfill the following prerequisites:
After successful completion of your 2 years apprenticeship followed by 2 years working in our Maintenance department, you can apply for an EASA Part-66 Category B AML (Aircraft Maintenance License). The apprenticeship consists of classroom-based studies at the Lycée Privé Emile Metz in Dommeldange/Luxembourg, and practical work at Cargolux. The apprenticeship consists of an “Apprentissage Adulte” contract.
The Aircraft Maintenance License (EASA Part-66 Cat.B) is recognized in all countries of the European Union and beyond, as well as a Luxembourg end-of-school certificate (Diplôme de Technicien). The apprentice will be trained with relevant airline experience, knowledge and technical skills.
Once your apprenticeship is completed, you may have the opportunity to apply for a permanent position within Cargolux. Further possibilities for career development are available, leading with time to the position of Assistant Lead, Lead, Foreman or Supervisor, as well as other positions in the technical field.
Applications for the program open in Spring each year.
