FlightSafety International has selected National Airways Corporation, based in Johannesburg, South Africa, as a FlightSafety Maintenance Training Center. Through NAC, FlightSafety will now offer training for Pratt & Whitney Canada engines in South Africa and the surrounding region.
FlightSafety will provide NAC with courseware and MATRIX training equipment that includes a graphical flight deck simulator, desktop simulator for classroom instruction, training engines, and specialty tools. NAC instructors will be trained and qualified by FlightSafety, and will also receive approval from aviation regulatory agencies as required. Through this agreement, NAC on behalf of FlightSafety, will begin with an initial offering of “Line and Base” courses for maintenance training on the PT6A, and PW100 series of Pratt & Whitney Canada engines.
