Flight Training Alliance has also been appointed by Bombardier as its exclusive Authorized Training Provider for CSeries aircraft worldwide.

The first training program deployments will be ready for training prior to entry into service of the aircraft.

Bombardier will work with the joint venture to ensure that training programs are aligned to CSeries aircraft operators' requirements and that they have access to training programs where and when they need them in the marketplace. Bombardier and the joint venture will use the same training program courseware and curriculum to ensure consistency in quality and delivery across the network.
