FlightSafety International introduced a PT6 engine familiarization training that will give pilots who fly PT6-powered turboprop aircraft the operating fundamentals including basic theory, engine to airframe interface and best practices while operating the engine. The company says the course will also be beneficial for pilots transitioning from piston-powered to turbine-powered aircraft.

The course will initially be offered in Botucato, Brazil and Montreal, Canada; and will be offered at other FlightSafety locations soon after.
