GGlobal Jet Services, an aviation maintenance training firm, has launched an online engine-run course for the Gulfstream G550. The course employs interactive instruments, panels, consoles and controls that allow technicians to press buttons, flip switches and pull handles. Graphics and simulations provide the experience of being in the cockpit and exercises introduce emergency procedures that can be practiced in timed scenarios.
“We know that it can be difficult to perform engine-run training in the field,” said Global Jet Services president J.D. McHenry, “so we developed a course that offers as close to a real hands-on experience as you can get outside of an actual cockpit or full-sized simulator.”
