Caroline Söderqvist, Patria Helicopters, recently took part in Swedish Skills Competition, Yrkes-SM, for aircraft mechanics and took home the winning title.

– I was nervous and excited at the same time. But I also knew I was well prepared and ready to compete, says Caroline.

The 23-year-old Caroline works as a mechanic at Patria Helicopters in Linköping.

Joel Eriksson who came third and took bronze in the Skills Competition will also be a Patria professional, starting in June.
