B1.3 Engine/Airframe

This engine/airframe type course runs for five weeks, with three weeks of theory and two weeks of practical on course training. Throughout the course, our experienced instructors take you through detailed real-world scenarios, ensuring you fully understand the unique maintenance requirements of the AW139 airframe and PT6C-67C engine.

Location: Brisbane

The B2 avionics type course runs for four weeks, with 13 days of theory and seven days of practical on-course training. The 139 has a number of unique avionics systems, including the PRIMUS EPIC system, and we take the time in both theory and practical training to ensure you are competent in maintaining these.

Location: Brisbane

This exclusion removal course is designed to allow you to remove the E1, E4 and E5 exclusions applied to the type rating on your CASA B1.3 licence. In eight days, you will complete the subjects you need to lift these restrictions from your 139 rating.

Note: If it has been more than three years since you have completed a 139 type course, CASA will not remove the E1, E4 and E5 exclusions from the 139 rating on your licence unless you sit a full type course again or complete an exclusion removal course. 

Location: Brisbane

Five or three-day courses for engineers who need to keep their licence current. The introduction of Part 145 regulations requires AW139 maintenance engineers to undertake refresher training every two years.

To ensure your training is more than a regulatory checkbox, we design our AW139 refresher courses to focus on current issues operators have been experiencing, revisit complex systems and review the latest SBs.
