Allows EASA Part 66 Holders To Complete Practical Training On
Boeing announced Tuesday that Alteon, the aviation training
business unit for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, recently earned
European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approval for maintenance
training on the Boeing 777 Program.
This EASA approval allows trainees who hold at least one prior
EASA Part 66 type rating to complete the Part 147 theoretical and
practical elements of training and apply for certification
privileges without further training or experience required.
"This approval allows maintenance workers on Boeing 777
airplanes to receive practical training on simulation devices on
the ground rather than booking expensive aircraft time," said
Sherry Carbary, president of Alteon. "This is yet another way that
Alteon is helping reduce costs for customers."
The Alteon practical maintenance training course takes 10 days
to complete and has been designed to complement the 30 day B1
theory course. The program is also available for recurrent and
refresher training, enabling maintenance personnel to continually
develop and improve their skills, keep current with fleet changes
and respond to dynamic fluctuations in fleet performance.
"Alteon has been working closely with EASA on certification and
other industry issues, and looks forward to continue working
together to revolutionize the techniques and requirements of
aviation training," said Steve Pennington, director of Maintenance
Training and Standards, for Alteon.
Alteon develops and delivers training products and services to
over 400 customers around the world. Through its global network,
Alteon employs over 1,400 training professionals in 20 locations
around the world supporting over 100 full-flight simulators.
