Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Worldwide Jet has expanded its online training program with a customized module developed by Advanced Aircrew Academy (Booth No. 1932). The South Carolina-based training company also announced that Charter First, a division of Minneapolis-based Petters Aviation, replaced its Web-based Part 135 training program with an Advanced Aircrew program.

Andrew Kaufman, chief pilot of Worldwide Jet, stated that the company’s pilots “enjoy the flexibility…and the up-to-date content that focuses on Worldwide Jet-specific procedures.” Likewise, Charter First pilots reported “significantly fewer” technical problems and said the program teaches “procedures…rather than just the TSA regulations.”

Advanced Aircrew Academy provides training in both online and classroom settings. According to the company, the training programs “enable small- to mid-size operations to fulfill their pilot training needs in the most efficient and affordable way–in any location, at any time.”
