Whilst Wayne Easlea, Operations Director of KLMUKE added: “The partnership with Nilai is a huge step forward in our aim to connect KLMUKE’s VLE products to many young engineers in the UK and abroad. The industry needs many good engineers for the future to accommodate the growing worldwide fleet and to replace inevitable retirements. KLMUKE wants to leverage its knowledge and experience and connect many more universities to its growing educational centre. This centre will be collocated as of early 2017 in the International Aviation Academy in Norwich
