Magnetic MRO Training, an EASA Part-147 approved type training organization, has re-opened its training facility after the most recent expansion. The new premises were opened on Thursday, September 19, 2019 and are aimed to be used mainly by Magnetic MRO and Estonian Aviation Academy for theoretical technical training for future aircraft mechanics. The recent expansion to almost 400m² of space results in a nearly 50% capacity increase in Tallinn for theoretical type training programs. As type training is lengthy and on average takes between 1.5 – 2 months, the facility not only helps to accommodate the growing needs of professionals in the industry, but also provides a comfortable training center which meets the needs of both instructors and trainees.
