Brisbane based Sikorsky Helitech has announced a three year agreement with FlightSafety International (FSI) to provide maintenance training on Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) aircraft engines for its customers in the Asia Pacific region.
The new agreement will see engine technicians gain access to 16 courses per year for maintenance training on four different P&WC engine types, with FlightSafety to provide Sikorsky Helitech with training courseware, a graphical flight simulator, and a variety of other training aids. Sikorsky Helitech instructors will also be trained and certified by FSI.
“By leveraging our existing Technical Training School, we are able to add another valuable support capability to our portfolio,” Sikorsky Helitech managing director George Cheetham said.
“Technicians who maintain and support Pratt & Whitney Canada engines in Australasia will benefit from our in-depth classroom and hands-on practical technology based training curriculum that Sikorsky Helitech will provide,” added FSI Maintenance Training business development director, Mike Lee.
