Bombardier and Texas State Technical College will train apprentices on Global 7500 wing manufacturing to support growth of the aircraft program.December 4, 2019, 8:52 AMBombardier has developed an apprenticeship program with Texas State Technical College (TSTC) to develop local skills as it ramps up manufacturing of the Global 7500 wing in Red Oak, Texas. The Canadian manufacturer acquired the Global 7500 wing program in Red Oak from Triumph Group earlier this year and signed a lease to continue production of the wing line there. Further, Bombardier retained the employees who supported the program. Looking forward, Bombardier and TSTC have developed a two-year Bombardier aviation apprenticeship to help build a pipeline for that program, as well as provide students with an entry into the aerospace sector. Students will train at TSTC’s facilities and receive on-the-job training, enabling them “to benefit at no cost from industry-tailored modules, experienced instructors, tools, and equipment and financial support,” Bombardier said. The program covers health, safety, and quality best practices; aircraft drawing and specification comprehension; “manufacturing appreciation of standard;” and regulatory compliance, among other topics. “The growth of Bombardier’s Global 7500 program is paramount to the future success and development of Bombardier Aviation, and this new apprenticeship program will foster the development of a talent pipeline necessary to keep up with all of our customer demands,” said Bombardier COO Paul Sislian. “This new program will also create strong partnerships with local, state, and federal level government bodies in the Red Oak region.” Business Aviation
