Aircraft maintenance training
SAT offers type training courses and customised maintenance training for various aircraft types including the Embraer 170/190 family, the Embraer ERJ 135/145 series, the BAe146/Avro RJ series and the Saab 2000. The corresponding certificates are recognised by numerous aviation authorities including the EASA, China’s CAAC, Australia’s CASA and the US Federal Aviation Administration.
Maintenance personnel human factors training
SAT’s human factors training courses for maintenance personnel adopt the innovative STAMINA training method developed by Trinity College Dublin and others. The training, which covers the EASA Part 66/145 syllabus, consists of a basic course lasting 2 to 2½ days and a continuation course of 1 to 2 days.
Flexible web-based aerospace training
SAT also offers LMS, a web-based training system that supports any type of aerospace training course. With its easy and always-identical access to any selected course at any time, LMS enables students to learn at their own pace, taking as much or as little time as they need.
SAT is a fully-licensed Flight Training Organization/Type Rating Training Organization (FTO/TRTO), is approved by JAA/EASA and FOCA and is further approved for Embraer 170/190 training by the FAA, CASA, CAAC and GACA. Its type-specific pilot training courses are carefully tailored to each customer’s needs and draw on a wide range of facilities including Airbus A319/320/321, Airbus A330/340, Embraer ERJ145, Embraer 170/190 and Boeing MD-83 full-flight simulators.
