FlightSafety International is now offering its Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) training programmes in Johannesburg, South Africa, through a cooperative agreement with ExecuJet.

“We are pleased to enhance the training we provide for maintenance technicians who support aircraft equipped with P&WC engines based in South Africa and the surrounding region,” says senior VP of commercial Steve Gross.

“Our cooperative agreement with ExecuJet will further increase the quality and effectiveness of the courses.”

FlightSafety provides advanced, technology-based maintenance training for P&WC products including turboprop, turbofan and turboshaft engines as well as for APUs. The courses offer in-depth classroom and hands-on instruction designed to develop, expand and refine proficiency.

Maintenance technicians benefit from the company's advanced technology MATRIX training system and use of full-scale systems trainers, major component cutaways, working models, maintenance task simulators and a range of test equipment used to demonstrate procedures and reinforce the information learned in the classroom.

FlightSafety has been the authorised training provider for P&WC since 2010. It has delivered more than 15,000 courses for P&WC engines and APUs to customers from 126 countries to date.
