Airborne voice and data provider Satcom Direct received FAA approval for inspection authorization (IA) renewal credit for its new Inmarsat satellite communications training course. A&P mechanics holding the IA must document recent experience and at least eight hours of training or other required work each year to qualify for renewal. The Satcom Direct course lasts two days and provides 16 hours of training credit for IAs. Course content includes general Inmarsat satellite system knowledge and troubleshooting techniques as well as hands-on exercises, according to Satcom Direct. “This new course will help avionics technicians, mechanics and even pilots learn more about the onboard communications systems they encounter and how to troubleshoot them,” said Jim Jensen, founder and owner of Satcom Direct. “These are important skills for gaining inspection authorization renewal credit and will help ensure that they remain a key asset within their organizations, which is essential in today's competitive industry.”
