TRU Simulation + Training plans to establish a new maintenance training facility for current model Cessna and Beechcraft aircraft. The facility will be located on the Textron Aviation Mid-Continent campus in Wichita, Kansas.
When completed, the existing space will be converted into a fully renovated training center equipped with TRU Simulation + Training courseware and aircraft maintenance instruction, classrooms and a flight line hangar. Cessna and Beechcraft owners and operators will experience courses ranging from avionics initial theory to engine run and taxi for the different aircraft models and will train on a combination of actual aircraft and TRU Simulation + Training maintenance trainers.
The new facility is scheduled to be ready for Beechcraft maintenance training in January 2016 and for Cessna maintenance training in January 2017. Future plans include expanding the training offerings to include Cessna and Beechcraft models that are no longer in production.
