FlightSafety adds training for leadership and maintenance managers
A course for maintenance department managers in partnership with the University of Southern California and a leadership for aviation professionals programme have seen FlightSafety expand its coverage significantly.
LEAP is FlightSafety's development programme for current and aspiring aviation leaders.

FlightSafety International has announced new speciality and enrichment courses available at its learning centres and online through eLearning and LiveLearning, its instructor-facilitated online training programme. In addition, courses for aircraft maintenance department managers will be offered in partnership with the University of Southern California at its Los Angeles campus or onsite at the customer's location.

Leadership for Aviation Professionals (LEAP) is a comprehensive development programme taught in an interactive classroom environment with individually tailored special projects and one-on-one mentorship hours. The executive-level programme comprises five modules, each incorporating pre-study material, a three-day classroom component, a special project tailored to each individual and one-on-one mentorship sessions with an aviation leadership expert. Attendees can gain practical experience with flight department manager responsibilities, create a network of peers and develop lasting leadership skills.

The company will introduce an enhanced FAA approved international procedures initial training course in January 2019, with eLearning modules tailored to the regions in which students fly. An international procedures recurrent course is also available online and at Learning Centers, as is international procedures line oriented simulator training.

Updated initial and recurrent human factors – CRM courses will be available early next year. They will meet current FAA and upcoming EASA and Transport Canada requirements.

In addition to an extensive online course offering and Part 135 training services, FlightSafety offers a Part 135 Indoc eLearning library that is customisable to an operator’s General Operating Manual. In 2019 it will introduce new flexible and adaptive recurrent training options, which will allow participants to spend less time in areas in which they are already proficient.

The USC maintenance-related courses include human factors in maintenance, human factors in aviation safety, aviation safety management systems, gas turbine accident investigation, helicopter accident investigation, aircraft accident investigation, safety management for aviation maintenance, safety management for ground operations and accident/incident response preparedness. All will be electives for the FlightSafety Master Technician-Management programme and can be taken under a FlightSafety event-based agreement.
