This is a significant year for FlightSafety and Gulfstream, as we prepare for the new G500 program entry into service, as well as continue to improve and update all our training programs for Gulfstream models.
Our fourth Gulfstream G650 simulator is in place in Wilmington, and we’re in the developmental stage of our fifth G650 simulator, planned for introduction at our London Farnborough Training Center in first quarter 2017. Later this year we will introduce the G650 Advanced Troubleshooting Course for maintenance technicians.
This year marks the first full year of the FlightSafety Master Aviator Program. This new program of challenging, advanced training courses is a first in the industry. The program kicked off with G550 aircraft but is rapidly being rolled out for other Gulfstream models.
This year’s new eLearning courses include the GIV and GV CPDLC, joining the G280, G450, G550, and G650 courses currently available, as well as the development of regional international procedures courses. The FlightSafety app continues to grow in response to Team Gulfstream customer requests and remains the industry standard for excellence in electronic publications and will be further enhanced with the introduction of FlightBag this year.
Savannah Learning Center already has the G500 simulator in place supporting Gulfstream engineering and human factors testing. In preparation for fleet entry into service in 2018, FlightSafety is preparing for training program requirements including the design of new state-of-the-art classrooms.
FlightSafety thanks you for your continued support for aviation safety. We hope you will enjoy this edition of Training Matters.
