FlightSafety International has received Part 147 certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for its aircraft maintenance technician training programs. FlightSafety’s technician training resources cover the entire business aviation spectrum as well as regional airline operations and a number of military aircraft types.

Following a recommendation from France’s civil aviation authority, the DGAC, the EASA has granted CAE SimuFlite’s technical training Part 147 approval. The agency has approved all aspects of the program, including the CAE SimuFlite facility in Dallas, the training process and the curriculum.

Although the Gulfstream V, Gulfstream IV and Falcon 2000 maintenance training programs were the first to achieve EASA Part 147 B1 approval, other maintenance programs offered by CAE SimuFlite are expected to earn certification shortly.
