Maintenance Training that fits Gulfstream operators to a T The long, close relationship between FlightSafety and Gulfstream Aerospace has resulted in Total Technical Training (TTT or Triple T), the advanced hands-on aircraft maintenance training program that leverages Gulfstream's knowledge of aircraft design, manufacture and support with FlightSafety's expertise in training. It's just one of many innovations to emerge from a professional affiliation dating to 1969.
Triple T employs a variety of methods and training devices to reinforce classroom knowledge and ensure that you return to your operation fully prepared to keep your aircraft safe and available for dispatch. In a program unique to FlightSafety and Gulfstream, instructors from both companies collaborate to teach the multiple layers of instruction that constitute each course.
Triple T is so effective, Gulfstream relies on the TTT Team to train its own customer maintenance technicians as well as product support and General Dynamics Aviation Services personnel. The training has resulted in greater standardization of maintenance practices in the field as well as improved aircraft reliability.
Our instructors bring a wealth of knowledge to your training. As a group they average nearly three decades of maintenance experience. Handpicked from service and manufacturing areas, instructors draw on past experiences and lessons learned in the field. As with all FlightSafety courses, our instructors leverage their knowledge to lead scenario-based training designed to ensure that you reach the level of proficiency you require.
But these scenarios aren't mere theory. Triple T immerses you in a learning environment specifically designed to replicate real-life service issues and events. Aircraft system instruction is reinforced by walking through actual problems being experienced by operators.
Three Centers of TTT Excellence
Triple T originated at our Savannah Learning Center, located adjacent to Gulfstream's primary manufacturing and service facilities. Demand for the training - up 300 percent in just five years - has prompted us to expand course offerings and locations. It is now also offered at our Dallas/Fort Worth Learning Center and, beginning in 2008, will be available at our Long Beach Learning Center.
Task-Specific Training Devices
Training occurs on specialized training devices in the hangar area, during live aircraft visits on a dedicated ramp and, in Savannah, on excursions to such Gulfstream service and manufacturing areas as the engine shop, hydraulic repair shops and avionics lab.
