Engine components overhaul
Sharp eyes for precious parts
Serviceable, repairable or scrap?
Alina has probably the keenest eyesight of all employees of within Lufthansa Technik Group. She always has to keep a very sharp eye on what she's doing: not only when she is inspecting engine parts but also when communicating with her colleagues by reading their lips. "I've always been interested in aviation, and dreamed of becoming a flight attendant. But with my hearing impairment this dream is difficult to realize. This is why I applied at Lufthansa Technik – now I keep aircraft flying," she says with a content smile. She is proud that her work examining engine components makes a contribution to keeping aircraft airworthy and technically flawless.
Check for damages and cracks
Paper and pen to the rescue
Alina Fomina was trained as a tool mechanic in a special program for people with hearing impairments. After her examination she worked in engine maintenance in Hamburg, inspecting and diagnosing engine parts. Two years ago she moved to take a new position at Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey near Frankfurt, Germany. A new challenge combined with being closer to her family made this a good choice for Alina.
