May 21, 2013, La Guardia Airport, N.Y. - FlightSafety International announced today that it has signed a Master Training Services Agreement with Pilatus Aircraft Ltd to provide factory-authorized training for the new Pilatus PC-24 aircraft. The current plan is to install the simulator at FlightSafety’s Learning Center in Dallas, Texas. Additional locations may be added in the future based on Customer requirements.
“We are honored that Pilatus has selected FlightSafety as their training provider for the new PC-24 aircraft,” said Bruce Whitman, President & CEO. “Pilatus and FlightSafety are mutually committed to provide PC-24 owners and operators with the highest quality training designed to enhance safety.”
“FlightSafety’s experience, high quality training programs and reputation for outstanding customer service, made it the ideal choice to serve as the exclusive authorized training provider for the new Pilatus PC-24,” said Oscar J. Schwenk, Chairman of the Board, Pilatus Aircraft Ltd.
FlightSafety’s courseware developers and simulation engineers are working closely with Pilatus to develop the PC-24 training programs and equipment. Pilot and maintenance technician training will include a full motion flight simulator designed and manufactured by FlightSafety. The programs will also utilize MATRIX, FlightSafety’s Integrated Training System. It offers Graphical Flight Deck Simulators for instructor-led and self-paced learning, Desk Top simulators used in classroom instruction, and the SimVu simulator flight de-briefing system.
