FlightSafety International recently announced a new PT6 engine familiarization training program for pilots. The aviation training company says the new PT6 training will provide pilots who fly PT6-powered turboprop aircraft with the operating fundamentals. The course includes basic theory, engine to airframe interface, and best practices while operating the engine. It will also be beneficial for pilots who are transitioning from piston powered to turbine powered aircraft.
The course will be offered at FlightSafety’s Learning Centers in Botucato, Brazil; Montreal, Canada; and at other locations in the near future.
FlightSafety provides advanced, technology-based maintenance training for many Pratt & Whitney Canada engine families including turboprop, turbofan and turboshaft engines as well as for auxiliary power units (APUs). It has been the authorized training provider for Pratt & Whitney Canada since 2010 and has delivered close to 14,000 courses for the company’s engines and APUs to customers from 126 countries to date.
