SEATTLE – The Boeing Company announces that Alteon, the aviation training business unit for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, has been accorded European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approval for maintenance training on the Boeing 777 Program.
This EASA approval allows trainees who hold at least one prior EASA Part 66 type rating to complete the Part 147 theoretical and practical elements of training and apply for certification privileges without further training or experience required.
“This approval allows maintenance workers on Boeing 777 airplanes to receive practical training on simulation devices on the ground rather than booking expensive aircraft time," says Sherry Carbary, president of Alteon.
The Alteon practical maintenance training course takes 10 days to complete and has been designed to complement the 30 day B1 theory course. The program is also available for recurrent and refresher training, enabling maintenance personnel to continually develop and improve their skills, keep current with fleet changes and respond to dynamic fluctuations in fleet performance.
“Alteon has been working closely with EASA on certification and other industry issues, and looks forward to continue working together to revolutionize the techniques and requirements of aviation training,” says Steve Pennington, director of Maintenance Training and Standards, for Alteon.
