Digitalization as part of technical operations

The possibilities of digitalization in the different areas of aircraft maintenance are enormous. Instead of basing the aircraft maintenance activities on paper documentation, we are moving towards managing the activities digitally. We have automated reporting in all areas of our operations and built metrics that support our actions to support management and development. With all this, we strive to do things more rationally.

Technical Operations now and in the future

Ensuring flight safety and continuing airworthiness are the main tasks of Technical Operations. A solid foundation and know-how have been built over the years. Many of our professionals have started their careers in a different position than they are in today. Competence is built through experience and purposeful learning.

We have different opportunities for people who want to develop and advance their career. At the same time as we are hiring junior employees, we will also need in-depth aviation professionals in the coming years. The basis for future Tech Ops is constantly being built. Would you like to be part of this future?
