Hong Kong’s Flight Training Resources (FTR) is looking to expand its third-party safety training to more business aviation operators as it enters its second year in operation.
Since opening in February 2018, FTR has been providing training to its launch customer TAG Aviation Asia. It offers safety emergency procedure training, smoke and fire training, aviation first aid, crew resource management, and aviation security training. TAG has more than 300 staff including 150 aircrew for whom FTR is providing initial and recurrent training.
FTR conducts aircraft door and over-wing exit training in its Airbus A320 over-wing exit door trainer, which is approved for most medium-sized jet operations. Its training instructors are certified by both Hong Kong and San Marino regulators. Fanessa Lee, manager of training and development, said FTR hopes to further promote the safety culture in this region.
The company shares the same ownership of Flight Training Adelaide and Flight Training Queensland in Australia. Flight Training Adelaide also provides ab-initio training for commercial airlines, including TAG Asia’s own cadet program.
