MU-2 operators and maintenance facilities now have a formal training program available through SimCom Training Centers. The company will offer MU-2 maintenance training to aircraft owners, operators, mechanics and technicians. The week-long course will familiarize mechanics and technicians new to the MU-2 withtype-specific inspection requirements and maintenance procedures.

The program combines classroom training with hands-on aircraft instruction by field service experts to provide a practical learning experience that can be applied in
the shop. Training will use graphics and animation software, video representations, actual aircraft parts and documentation manuals, including Mitsubishi’s Aircraft Inspection and Maintenance Requirements Manual (MR-0179-2).

According to the company, the MU-2 itself will be used for instruction and demonstrations. Maintenance professionals from authorized MU-2 service centers will conduct hands-on inspections, and representatives from Turbine Aircraft Services will address the support of the MU-2 available through various publications and technical assistance. Jim Treadwell, MU-2 program coordinator for SimCom, is the course instructor.
