Spirit Airlines is preparing for the installation of the first Airbus Competence Training (ACT) classroom in the Americas. This maintenance training suite is being set up at Spirit's new maintenance facilities in Detroit, Michigan. The airline’s maintenance personnel and engineers will receive initial and recurrent training in the new A320 ACT classroom.

ACT is an operationally oriented, scenario-based program focused on a 'learning by doing' approach. It allows for both theoretical - with animated system descriptions - and practical troubleshooting and maintenance tasks. Spirit Airlines and Airbus have signed a five-year agreement for the A320 ACT Suite.
