    Genskill is a part task trainer providing experience through practical exercises for hand skills necessary to work on aircraft components in confined spaces, accessed through panels on a replicated aircraft fuselage....

  • Pennant has developed the GenSkill Trainer to introduce students to the hand skills necessary to work on aircraft components. Closing the shell on the GenSkill adds realism to the training as the students now have to work through access panels with restricted access.The students perform practical maintenance tasks using standard hand tools. They can perform tasks such as:

    • Hand tool procedures,
    • wire locking/split pinning,
    • fastener operation,
    • removal and refit of components,
    • electrical continuity checks.

    The Genskill trainer is used in aviation colleges around the world. It is also used in the Aircraft Maintenance competition within the biannual WorldSkills Competition; the biggest vocational education and excellence event in the world.

    The recently released Mark 2 GenSkill enables a student to fabricate aircraft electrical looms and harnesses to produce a functioning avionics circuit which can be installed and tested on the GenSkill unit.
