Pilot Training

Business and Commercial Aircraft Training

We developed the first factory-authorized training agreement in the 1960s. Today, our close, long-standing relationships ensure the most effective and accurate private and commercial pilot training possible. We constantly update our courses to employ best practices for each manufacturer. Our training technology reflects the advanced aircraft equipment currently in use.

Pilots of Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker aircraft leverage the combined resources and capabilities of two global aviation leaders. Take advantage of expert instruction and customized courseware designed specifically for these iconic business and general aviation brands, provided by FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training.

Our Learning Centers, fully qualified under aviation regulatory requirements, operate with an emphasis on reliability, convenience and flexibility. Our goal is to advance missions by offering the specific training support needed, including access to simulator technology, specially designed training environments and the expertise of professional FAA- and EASA-qualified instructors.

Tools for Airline Training

FlightSafety offers training for regional airline operators at 19 Learning Centers, using a fleet of 65 full flight simulators. Larger commercial airlines around the world use our simulators and devices in their own training programs, mastering skills on transport aircraft by major manufacturers.
