FlightSafety expands training services

9th March 2012 - 12:58 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


FlightSafety International has reported a sharp increase in demand for its training services in the Middle East, in particular from operators of Sikorsky helicopters.

In a press release on 8 March, the company reported that since 2007 training programmes for Sikorsky aircraft had increased by 84%.

The company, which offers simulation training on Bell, Eurocopter and Sikorsky helicopters as well as fixed wing training, provided more than 2,000 ‘training events’ to customers from the Middle East in the past year. This included pilot, maintenance, flight attendant and dispatch training for operators of both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.

‘The training FlightSafety provided to operators in the Middle East increased the most during the past year among those based in Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Egypt, Israel, Kuwait, Oman, and Turkey,’ a statement from the company said.

FlightSafety is currently investing in the design and manufacture of 14 new Level D-qualified simulators, including AgustaWestland AW139 and Sikorsky S-76D. These will be installed at FlightSafety Learning Centers this year and next.

Recent and upcoming expansions to FlightSafety’s Learning Center network includes the opening of a Learning Center in Hong Kong, a new Maintenance Training Center for Cessna in Wichita, and an increase in the number of locations for Pratt & Whitney Canada engine training worldwide.
