The Bell Training Academy is to offer virtual pilot and maintenance training for global customers who may be unable to travel to its training facilities.
“This is one of many virtual support offerings in the initial phase of our customer support and services modernisation effort,” says Sam Nelson, general manager of Bell Global Training Academy. “In today's environment, we recognise the need for the availability of virtual training courses and have developed a virtual experience that offers a comprehensive training curriculum to meet the required training needs of customers.”
The courses that are currently available via the Bell Training Academy's virtual platform are the Bell 505 pilot, Bell 505 avionics and field maintenance, Bell 429 pilot and Bell 407 pilot. The company expects to offer virtual courses for all Bell current commercial products by the end of July 2020.
The academy has exceeded 230,000 total flight hours with the combined experience of more than 250 years of technical instruction. Bell instructors have accumulated several awards, including HAI Outstanding Flight Instructor, Safety and Communication honours, and are proud to provide pilot and technical training for operators around the world.
