Marske Volunteer/ Apprentice Program/ Monarch Club/ Butterfly Works
|Marske Flying Wings has a volunteer / apprentice program for those wanting to help us, learn the skills or to work for us.
Those wishing to work for us are required to do a two week apprenticeship. This is a demanding undertaking: we work long hours and require that all participants follow directions carefully, and wear glasses and gloves in the shop area. One is also expected to document their work and write out procedures.
Paid Work will be part-time.
Areas that may interest you are: working on the Pioneer III , production of the Monarch G, trailer making, auto towing or office work.
This program is a minimum of two weeks long for the initial session. One can then volunteer for a few days a week or month and then if one can work unsupervised and the quality of the work is up to our standard we pay piece work for parts and assemblies made. Payment is by piece work at roughly $15 per hour. Glider instruction may be had instead of payment if desired.
We have workmans compensation to cover any injuries.
One starts as an apprentice, learning how to work with epoxy resins, fiberglass and Carbon cloth making parts from a mold.
Persons building jigs or molds receive 5% of the retail from any part made in that mold or jig.
We can also use volunteers to autotow gliders and follow cross country attempts.
Once basic skills have been learned one can progress to building assemblies, welding, painting, fabric covering and other facets of the Marske aircraft production.
