02 Jul Engine training has launched
When Sikorsky closed its Brisbane facility earlier this year, Australia lost its only provider of RR250 and T53 engine training. So we have spent most of 2020 developing new engine courses to ensure you can continue to access this training here in Australia.
The RR250 Series engine course is now live, and a Honeywell T53 course is launching soon. With international travel restrictions currently in place, the launch of these courses will be welcome news if you need to attain an engine licence in 2020.
Each course has at least one engine for you to pull apart during practical training, and is led by an instructor with experience on each engine. We’ve also teamed up with Asia Pacific Aerospace (APA) to run the RR250 Series engine course, so you also gain exposure to a world-class overhaul facility.
These courses have generated a lot of interest… and a lot of questions. So here are the FAQs we’ve been getting about engine training.
Why did you launch theSE COURSES?
We launched these courses to keep this training available in Australia. Given these are 5-day courses, the cost and time of travelling abroad adds a significant expense to this style of training. So it was important to us to make sure this training remains in country.
How do I know if I’m eligible?
To enrol for either of these courses, you must hold a B1.3 licence or have a minimum of two years experience in the aviation industry. If you are not sure if you meet eligibility requirements, please contact us and we can offer further guidance.
Will you be running these courses in 2021?
Yes, our 2021 dates will be announced in the coming months. There will be a RR250 Series course in February – stayed tuned for details on the T53 and type training courses.
