Gulfstream Aerospace and FlightSafety International are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their complimentary ground handling and servicing training programme.

Tailored for line service technicians, the programme is designed to improve dispatch reliability and increase safety for Gulfstream aircraft and the people who support them. It features explanations and demonstrations of best practices for handling and servicing Gulfstream aircraft, including parking, walkarounds, fuelling, towing, snow and ice removal and more. Gulfstream covers the cost for FBO personnel to complete the course annually. To ensure this quality training service is easily available, it can be accessed online anywhere, at any time.

Since the programme's launch in October 2013, 160 FBOs located in 30 countries have participated, and more than 800 technicians have enrolled this year to date.

“This exciting milestone further demonstrates our ongoing commitment to safety and service,” says Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream customer support. “We value our partnership with FlightSafety International and we're pleased to work with it to offer this complimentary service to technicians at the FBOs our customers rely on. Since the programme's inception, there have been 26,000 ground handling and servicing training course enrolments.”

Over the past decade, the programme has evolved and expanded to support Gulfstream's growing fleet. Today, it includes training customised for technicians handling Gulfstream G150, G200, G280, G450, G550, G650, G500, G600, G700 and G800 aircraft.
