Sino Swearingen Earns FAA Approval For Pilot Training Program

Classes Conducted At San Antonio, TX Facility

Sino Swearingen Aircraft Corporation announced Monday it has received FAA approval for its 14 CFR Part 141 Pilot School Certificate.

"We are very proud of the work that our training department has done to get this accomplished," said Dr. Ching-Chiang Kuo, Chairman and CEO of SSAC. "While we have been training pilots in our FAA-approved 14 CFR Part 61 syllabus, the approval of the 141 school enables us to train the pilots in a more structured manner and demonstrates our commitment to a world class training organization. This will ensure that all of our customers receive the best training possible, and not only help to make the SJ30 and its crews the best performing in this class, but also the safest."

Representatives with SSAC tell ANN the planemaker has made pilot training part of its core focus by offering factory flight training at its San Antonio, TX location. The company says this approach provides better and timelier access to Engineering, Production and Customer Support personnel with the hands-on knowledge to keep the training curriculum up-to-date, practical, and accurate.

"We’ve been working on this project for a long time," said Edward Gagnon, Vice President of Customer Support. "I extend my appreciation to our team for the excellent work they’ve done in developing the training curriculum and the pilot training manual. They also have to be commended for their professional delivery of the course. In addition, I want to acknowledge the FAA for its support, cooperation and dedication over the course of this project."

The planemaker intends for both its initial and recurrent pilot training classes to be continuously provided. Classes are now being scheduled for the summer of 2007.
