Santos Dumont Graduate Programme 2021

The Santos Dumont Graduate Programme is designed at giving students from engineering, analytical or business backgrounds the opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge in a problem-solving environment of aviation technical asset management and advisory services.

In the field of technical asset management, Santos Dumont specialists have all the skills to ensure aircraft investments and airline operations are maintained and operated to the highest standard. This oversight requires both physical and electronic asset management that creates the prerequisites for safeguarding and increasing the value of aircraft investments. As one of the world’s leading aviation companies, we at Santos Dumont have mastered the complex management tasks involved in maintaining residual value and aircraft liquidity in an ever-evolving market. Our technical asset managers assume these tasks to the benefit of all, while always keeping an eye on achieving optimal return on an asset. As an independent company, Santos Dumont is a nodal point for information flow and operational decision between investors, airlines, banks and service providers.
