FlightSafety International and the University of Southern California, Los Angeles entered an agreement to provide a comprehensive series of courses for aircraft maintenance department managers.

The courses include Human Factors in Maintenance, Human Factors in Aviation Safety, Aviation Safety Management Systems, Gas Turbine Accident Investigation, Helicopter Accident Investigation, Aircraft Accident Investigation, Safety Management for Aviation Maintenance, Safety Management for Ground Operations and Accident/Incident Response Preparedness.

They can be taken at the USC campus in Los Angeles or onsite at the customer’s location. All of the courses will be electives for the FlightSafety Master Technician-Management Program and can be taken under a FlightSafety event-based agreement.

“The USC Aviation Safety and Security program was established at USC in 1952 as the first Aviation Safety program at a major research university,” according to Thomas Anthony, Director USC Aviation Safety and Security Program, who says the program develops and offers advanced and relevant aviation safety courses all segments of the aviation community.
