FlightSafety's Dassault Falcon 7X Maintenance Initial Training Course Receives EASA Approval

LA GUARDIA AIRPORT, New York (December 13, 2011) – FlightSafety International is pleased to announce that its Dassault Falcon 7X Theory Maintenance Initial Course has been approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency. The course is available at FlightSafety’s Learning Centers in Dallas, Texas, and at the Paris-Le Bourget airport in France.

“EASA approval of FlightSafety’s Dassault Falcon 7X Maintenance Initial Course demonstrates our commitment to provide Customers around the world with the high quality training programs they require,” said Mike Lee, Director Maintenance Training Business Development.

The 20 day course is designed to meet the training requirements of technicians that have limited experience maintaining the Falcon 7X aircraft. Areas covered include component location, function, normal system operation, routine servicing, minor troubleshooting and repair of aircraft systems.

Course materials are displayed on High Resolution projection systems. This includes an innovative single screen presentation of full flight deck simulation at each technician’s learning station. The learning stations employ individual Cursor Control Devices and 30 inch monitors for uninterrupted viewing of the real time simulation and presentations.

Simulator training is conducted outside normal class hours, to demonstrate normal systems operation, as well as reinforcing classroom training on systems controls and indications.

The course objectives are aligned with ATA 104 Level III and EASA part 147 recommendations. The course has now received approval from the FAA, Transport Canada and EASA.
