    Hello reprobate,

    I'm currently employed at KLM uk Engineering in Amsterdam.

    I've done a type-course in Norwich last October and I've seen the hangar.

    The Technical College looks like Tjernobyl (but is JAR-147 approved) and the hangar is a mess.

    KLM uk Engineering Ltd. (the AMS-division) and Stork Fokker Aviation will soon start-up a new company to maintain F50's and F100's.

    So,KLM uk AMS will soon get a different name.

    They need mechanics/engineers. If you're holding a JAR 66-licence or entitled to grand-father rights,than they might be interested.

    I hope this helps.

    Regards,

    aceiprt

    Many thanks for your reply Aceiprt, Wow Amsterdam sounds good!! I did have LWTR A&C on rotorcraft, but it's expired (probably along with my prospects now), as i am not in it at the mo....I will however have a punt on spec!! Are they still operating helos as well as the fixed wing stuff?? Seems like the 147 approval for the tech centre is well deserved!!

    Regards,

    Reprobate

    the kingston forum should give a good bit of info re: the foundation degree and B1 license, all i'll add is the fact that we're often p****d about, but in the long run it's worth it!

    Some of the B1's in there must have got their license free with a Delia Smith cookbook,cause they have no idea what they are doing!The fat controller blew a bloke out today for a silly mistake and he was 7 weeks away from retirement,think he has small man syndrome!Nuff said,G'bye!

    Wot - Again???

    ISTR this happened before - and ended without much grace just after "the new company" moved from Hangar 9 to Hangar 73 - 12 bays and one F50 in the corner.

    Are they going to get all the ground equipment off e-bay again too?
    Looked alright to Me....
