Overhaul facilities for commercial aircraft’s are a rarity , and one can observe the complete overhaul process for various aircraft systems and sub-systems .
How did you prepare for the placement season? What advice would you give to your juniors regarding the placement season?
Since i got this internship off campus I really hadn’t done any specific preparations for it but i will suggest all those who are looking out for off campus internships like these should apply as soon as these companies start recruiting interns because these companies usually have a cap on the number of intakes.
Elaborate on the type of work in this kind of role?
The mechanical facility is located attached to IGI Cargo Airport . The whole complex is divided into 2 major parts namely overhaul of hydraulics and sub components , Jet engine overhaul shops.In general overhaul shop various sub assemblies like engine Power transfer Unit , brakes , landing gears, air conditioning sub components are inspected , repaired and also simulated in a real World environment in a state of the art test rig facility.

I will say try to explore as much as you can in the first two years and then once you have found your interest try to build upon in in the next two years,this even makes your resume diverse and more planned.
