FlightSafety Announces New PT6A Engine Series Pilot Familiarization Course

Curriculum Designed Specifically For Agricultural Operators

FlightSafety International has announced a new Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A Series Pilot Familiarization Course designed specifically for Agricultural Aircraft operators. Training is planned to begin in Brazil early next year. Additional locations will be added according to customer needs.

"This new course will provide agricultural pilots who fly aircraft equipped with Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A series engines with the information and hands-on practical training needed to help operate and maintain the engines to the highest standards,” said Steve Gross, Senior Vice President, Commercial.

“In listening to our agricultural customers’ needs, we’ve recognized that in addition to providing high quality OEM maintenance training, it is equally important to optimize pilots’ understanding of engine operability and performance to enhance communication with the technicians maintaining the aircraft,” said Tim Swail, Vice President, Customer Programs, Pratt & Whitney Canada.

This one-day course provides pilots with information regarding normal and abnormal operation, operational procedures and recommendations to help ensure the engines perform at peak efficiency. It includes an in-depth overview of the engine’s major systems and its interface with the aircraft.

FlightSafety delivers advanced, technology-based maintenance training for Pratt & Whitney Canada products including turboprop, turbofan and turboshaft engines as well as for auxiliary power units. The training programs include in-depth classroom and hands-on instruction designed to develop, expand and refine proficiency.

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 over 15,000 courses for Pratt & Whitney Canada engines and auxiliary power units to Customers from 126 countries to date. This includes those taken at Learning Centers around the world and through eLearning and interactive distance learning.
