Pan Am International Flight Academy (PAIFA) and Saab Aircraft of America signed an agreement to jointly develop maintenance training courses for North and South American operators of the Saab 340 twin turboprop. Courses, available on demand, will be held at the customer’s location or at PAIFA’s regional airline training centers located in Dulles, Va., and Minneapolis. The first program, a two-week initial maintenance training course, has been completed and was provided to Shuttle America. Headquartered in Miami, PAIFA provides pilot and mechanic training for business jet operators, including 737 type ratings, as well as for the airlines.
