FSI Trains Laid-off Pilots at no cost

 - June 29, 2009, 8:57 AM

FlightSafety International launched the Proficiency Protection Program, which is intended to help maintain the currency of business aircraft pilots and maintenance technicians who have been laid off since January 1. Under the program, FlightSafety will offer a no-cost recurrent training course to pilots of business aircraft who were training under a full-service contract at the time of their job loss. The training will be provided in an aircraft type the pilot trained on under that agreement. Maintenance technicians who were enrolled in FlightSafety’s Master Technician program at the time they were laid off can receive the next course toward their Master Technician rating at no cost. The program will remain in effect until December 31 this year.
