To gain the required practical experience for your licence, you will be placed in one of our partner maintenance organisations, with the opportunity to work on a wide range of commercial aircraft.
MAF UK is excited to be rolling out a sponsored aircraft engineering training scheme to those resident in the UK and Ireland. We are seeking to enable aspiring aircraft maintenance engineers to join MAF and work overseas.
If you're successful, we will help you achieve the theoretical knowledge and practical experience necessary to obtain an EASA B1 or B2 licence.
You will then go on to serve with MAF in various programmes across Africa and the Asia-Pacific region.
MAF UK will provide financial assistance
by employing candidates on fixed-
term contracts for the period of service. This assists with living expenses and accommodation costs.
MAF UK will also cover the cost of tuition for both the approved and modular routes.
For those on the degree route, MAF UK will pay monthly student loan repayments for the length of active service.
During practical assignments, maintenance providers will employ candidates directly and pay a salary in line with industry standards.
In view of MAF UK’s investment, successful candidates will be required to sign a training agreement binding them to service with MAF following the completion of their studies and practical experience.
This agreement will normally last between four and eight years. Self-withdrawal
from overseas service will require pro rata repayment of training-related costs.
The Training Scheme
There are three pathways through the MAF UK training scheme:
The degree route involves enrolment at the University of South Wales to complete a BSc (Hons) Aircraft Engineering and Maintenance Systems, followed by two years of gaining practical experience with a partner organisation in the UK.

Closing date: 30 August each year
