AAI wins Swedish training certification
AAI Logistics & Technical Services, an operating unit of Textron Systems has announced that it has been awarded maintenance training provider certification by the Sweden Armed Forces Technical School. This makes AAI the first unmanned aircraft system (UAS) training provider to have earned this designation, and only the sixth altogether.
According to AAI, the Sweden Armed Forces Technical School requires certification of all training providers to ensure quality for their personnel, as well as conformance to their standards.
AAI Logistics & Technical Services’ training programme for the Shadow Tactical UAS (TUAS) has been verified to conform with Swedish Rules of Military Aviation RML-V-7F, which specifies standards, training levels and content, as well as other theoretical and practical training elements.
AAI Logistics & Technical Services is currently conducting a second round of Shadow system training for Swedish maintainer and operator trainees. AAI Logistics & Technical Services provides a broad range of UAS training services, and its instructors support classroom, simulation and hands-on training techniques for the most positive learning outcomes. The company’s Sweden Armed Forces Technical School training provider certification remains valid for an unlimited duration provided its services remain in compliance.
