The Secretary of Infrastructures and Mobility and President of Aeroports de Catalunya, Isidre Gavín, and the Mayor of Vilanova i la Geltrú, Olga Arnau, have signed the collaboration agreement between the two administrations for the establishment of an aeronautical mechanics training school at Lleida-Alguaire airport.

This agreement is the result of synergies between the Vilanova School of Mechanics and Lleida-Alguaire Airport, they both consider the provision of duly qualified personnel in the aeronautical sector to be very important. A booming sector that will require staff trained for the future growth.

The Secretary, Isidre Gavín, explained that “the commitment of the Government of the Generalitat to have an industrial airport and aeronautical services in Alguaire is especially useful to develop the technical training activities of the sector and allows this strategic alliance which also brings us great social value”.

For Gavín, “training the technicians that a strategic sector needs in our house gives opportunities to our young people and strengthens our country’s industrial capabilities.”

At Lleida-Alguaire Airport there are spaces available to install an aeronautical school for internships with companies that have real needs to incorporate staff. This agreement is the first step in this direction.

The installation of this school at Lleida-Alguaire airport is a training opportunity for the counties of Lleida in a sector with high expectations for the future.
