Dassault Falcon awarded its two training partners, CAE and FlightSafety International, certificates demonstrating full compliance with requirements of the new Falcon training policy manual (FTPM) late last week. The certificates, which are valid for two years, cover training of pilots, maintenance personnel and cabin crew. Individual aircraft approvals will be issued throughout the year, Dassault said.
“The certificate ensures that training conforms fully with Dassault Aviation requirements and that the slightest change in aircraft design will immediately be reflected in the training syllabus,” said Dassault Aviation vice president of operational support Gerard Dailloux.
The FTPM is intended to ensure that all Falcon customers are trained to the same standard and benefit from the most up-to-date technical information on each aircraft they operate. To obtain qualification, FlightSafety and CAE were evaluated on instructor skills, courseware and training tools and devices, in relation to these standards.
The training providers also developed a process that involved tracking of changes to aircraft design and flight documentation and drew heavily on customer feedback and internal quality audits.
