Hawker Beechcraft and FlightSafety Offer Training
A new 44,000-sq-ft maintenance training center has opened near the Hawker Beechcraft (HBC) Wichita facility and is offering a full schedule of technical training courses. It is a joint effort between Hawker Beechcraft and FlightSafety International. According to Christi Tannahill, vice president for Hawker Beechcraft global customer service and support, the first course offered is MxPro. “It will enhance technicians’ ability to troubleshoot and repair aircraft quickly and immerses them in a training environment that will give them opportunities just like those they will experience on the job.” It incorporates two weeks of classroom and one week of hands-on instruction. Initially, MxPro training is being offered on the Hawker 900XP, with additional platforms to follow. MxPro Regulatory supplements the basic course with an additional week of hands-on training and is designed to provide foreign certification for the various regulatory agencies around the world. MxPro Plus provides structured on-the-job training at the technician’s home base.
