Spirit Airlines, a low-cost carrier based in Miramar, Florida, is preparing for the installation of the first Airbus Competence Training (ACT) classroom in the Americas. This state-of-the-art maintenance training suite is being set-up at Spirit’s new maintenance facilities in Detroit, Michigan (U.S.). Spirit’s maintenance personnel and engineers will receive initial and recurrent training in the new A320 ACT classroom.

“We are excited to continue our great partnership with Airbus, and delighted with the prospects of this new Detroit training facility,” said John Bendoraitis, Spirit's Chief Operating Officer. "The advanced training opportunities for our Technical Operations Team Members that the facility provides will allow Spirit to stay updated with the latest technology that Airbus develops. We already began this new era with our first A320 course, which began September 21."

“Supporting our customers’ needs is a top priority for Airbus,” said Damon Cram, Director, Airbus Training Sales. “We are pleased to meet Spirit’s internal training needs by providing this all-in-one, on-site comprehensive solution to the airline’s maintenance and engineering training organization. Making the ACT concept and Airbus’ educational tools available to Spirit is a milestone for Training by Airbus in the Americas. This placement will ensure even more efficient service, support and proximity to our customers.”

ACT is an operationally oriented, scenario-based program focused on a ‘learning by doing’ approach. It allows for both theoretical – with animated system descriptions – and practical troubleshooting and maintenance tasks. Spirit Airlines and Airbus have signed a five-year agreement for the A320 ACT Suite. 
Airbus’ portfolio of training services, collectively named “Training by Airbus,” ensures a smooth aircraft entry into service and provides customers with support and services throughout the operation life of their Airbus fleet. Courses are also provided locally to customers due to advanced mobile solutions and e-learning opportunities.
