Kralendijk- A group of EZ Air mechanics participated in a training provided by Beechcraft Raytheon, which was executed in Aruba this week.
The training was necessary to prepare the mechanics for the 2 Beechcraft 1900D machines EZ Air expects to receive this months. Currently, both aircraft are undergoing an avionics upgrade at a specialized facility in Florida.
EZ Air owner René Winkel said to be satisfied with the results of the training. “All our mechanics passed with flying colours. I really didn’t expect anything else, because we have the best mechanics.”, said Winkel.
EZ Air currently operates a single Britten-Norman Islander aircraft on a charter basis, but will move on to providing scheduled services between the ABC-islands and beyond one the new 19-seater Beechcraft are taken into service.
EZ Air was able to realize the expansion of their fleet through an investment made by the Pension Fund Caribbean Netherlands (PCN).
