FlightSafety International (FSI) received approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for its Embraer Legacy 500 maintenance training program on February 21. Embraer Executive Jets factory and authorized service center personnel are already receiving training on the under-development Legacy 500, and FSI will begin providing training services to operators of the new jet immediately following its certification. For Embraer aircraft FSI offers FAA and EASA-approved maintenance training courses for maintenance initial; maintenance update; avionics add-on; engine run and taxi; and maintenance familiarization. Eleven FSI locations worldwide provide factory-authorized training for the Embraer Legacy 450, 500, 600 and 650, as well as the Lineage 1000 and the E-Jets series of regional jetliners. The 11 facilities provide 24 full-flight simulators for flight training, as well as other advanced training aids for maintenance personnel. Mike Lee, director of maintenance training business development for FSI, said, “FlightSafety and Embraer have worked closely together to develop the Legacy 500 maintenance training program and to receive EASA approval.”
