FlightSafety International announces a new PT6 engine familiarization training program for pilots.

“FlightSafety’s new PT6 engine familiarization training will provide pilots who fly PT6-powered turboprop aircraft with the operating fundamentals,” said Daniel MacLellan, Senior Vice President, Operations. “The course includes basic theory, engine to airframe interface, and best practices while operating the engine. It will also be beneficial for pilots who are transitioning from piston powered to turbine powered aircraft.”

The course will be offered at FlightSafety’s Learning Centers in Botucato, Brazil; Montreal, Canada; and at other locations in the near future.

FlightSafety provides advanced, technology-based maintenance training for many Pratt & Whitney Canada engine families including turboprop, turbofan and turboshaft engines as well as for auxiliary power units (APUs). The maintenance training programs offer in-depth classroom and hands-on instruction designed to develop, expand and refine proficiency.

The industry-leading maintenance training courseware and curriculum meets worldwide regulatory requirements. Maintenance technicians benefit from FlightSafety’s advanced technology MATRIX training system and use of full-scale systems trainers, major component cutaways, working models, maintenance task simulators and a large variety of test equipment used to demonstrate procedures and reinforce the information learned in the classroom.

FlightSafety has been the authorized training provider for Pratt & Whitney Canada since 2010.  The training is currently available in Bangalore, India; Brisbane, Australia; Botucatu, Brazil; Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas; Haikou, China; Johannesburg, South Africa; Montreal, Canada; Paris-Le Bourget, France; Singapore; Toronto, Canada; West Palm Beach, Florida; and Wichita, Kansas.

FlightSafety has delivered close to 14,000 courses for Pratt & Whitney Canada engines and APUs to customers from 126 countries to date. This includes those taken at Learning Centers around the world and through eLearning and interactive distance learning.
