Sky's the limit as new apprentices sign on with Sikorsky Australia

Sikorsky Australia has continued its growth at the Albatross Aviation Technology Park, south west of Nowra, employing another three apprentices.

Part of the Lockheed Martin company, the three apprentice aircraft maintenance engineers join the company's growing Nowra staff at the maintenance and logistics support facility which now totals 140.

The trio comes from different backgrounds, but all with a love and fascination for aeronautics.

Joel Grimston, 38, of Cambewarra, Luca Taglieri, 20, of Flinders and Nicholas Poelczer, 20, of Kiama have joined Sikorsky's formal apprenticeship and trainee program as part of the Commonwealth's $1 million investment over four years to engage and recruit apprentices and trainees in the Shoalhaven region.
