“We are very pleased and proud to congratulate Joe on his significant achievement and to celebrate the awarding of FlightSafety’s 4,000th Master Technician certificate,” says Daniel MacLellan, senior vice president operations. “The recognition of Joe and all others who have completed this rigorous programme is most deserved.”

FlightSafety Master Technician training provides aviation maintenance professionals with in-depth instruction and real-world practical training. This innovative programme was developed in close collaboration with aircraft, component and systems manufacturers. It is designed to enable technicians to further enhance their contributions to the safety, reliability and operating efficiency of the aircraft or components they support and maintain.

The paths include airframe, avionics, composites, engines and management. Technicians typically earn a Master Technician certificate in several paths. It usually takes four to five years to complete the programme.

FlightSafety offers a wide variety of maintenance training programmes. Courses are available for the complete line of Pratt & Whitney Canada engines, Honeywell engines, auxiliary power systems, avionics, satcom and environmental control systems, as well as aircraft manufactured by Bombardier, Dassault Falcon, Embraer, Gulfstream, Leonardo, Piaggio, Sikorsky and Textron. The training is approved by most leading aviation authorities worldwide.
