NEW YORK (August 15, 2018) – FlightSafety International announces a new PT6 engine familiarization training program for pilots.
“FlightSafety’s new PT6 engine familiarization training will provide pilots who fly PT6-powered turboprop aircraft with the operating fundamentals,” said Daniel MacLellan, Senior Vice President, Operations. “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.
