In late May, 19 members of 11/01 Avionic Mechanics course completed their training in servicing of aircraft at Woodbourne. This training teaches the students the fundamentals of how to carry out basic servicing and replenishment procedures on aircraft. Another part of this training involves the students being assessed in their ability to safely marshal aircraft.
Training is carried out using the recently acquired Mitsubishi MU2 Sumo aircraft which are taxied around the apron under their own power at Woodbourne. This gives the students real life exposure to the sounds, smells and what they are likely to experience when they complete their training and are posted to an operational squadron.
