FlightSafety International is now offering factory-authorised training for the HondaJet in Europe. FlightSafety's Farnborough Learning Centre will provide initial and recurrent pilot training, as well as wide variety of other courses, designed to meet the specific needs of HondaJet operators.
“We are pleased to offer training for the HondaJet at our Farnborough Centre,” comments Nathan Speiser, executive VP of sales and marketing. “We work closely with Honda Aircraft to ensure the simulators and training programmes reflect the exact operating characteristics of the HondaJet and meet the highest standards set by EASA and other aviation regulatory authorities around the world.”
The advanced technology systems and components installed in the FlightSafety FS1000 simulator built for the HondaJet include the CrewView collimated glass mirror display, VITAL 1100 visual system, electric motion cueing system and advanced instructor operating station.
“As our fleet continues to increase in size, it is necessary for the HondaJet service, support and training network to expand,” states Honda Aircraft Company president and CEO Michimasa Fujino. “We are pleased to announce that we have completed the installation of the second HondaJet flight simulator at Farnborough, which started its operations this week. The HondaJet was designed to reduce pilot workload and maximise the flying experience, and so we are confident that it will be enjoyed by pilots and passengers alike. We are proud of the relationship between our global support network and FlightSafety International. It has been instrumental in providing HondaJet customers with an unrivalled ownership experience.”
Matrix, FlightSafety's integrated training system, is used to provide hands-on instruction that has been proven to enhance the learning experience and promote increased retention and transfer of lesson materials. Additionally, FlightSafety's FlightBag app with pre-study material is now available to HondaJet operators. Training for maintenance technicians is offered at the FlightSafety HondaJet Learning Centre in Greensboro, North Carolina. The training meets EASA (B1 and B2) and FAA requirements with courses covering initial, update and practical needs, along with avionics, taxi movements and engines. Supplemental training on the GE Honda HF120 engine and the Garmin G3000 avionics system is also offered.
FlightSafety also provides courses for pilots and maintenance technicians online through its instructor-led LiveLearning and eLearning training systems.
