FlightSafety International is now offering factory-authorized training for the HondaJet HA-420 in Europe at its Farnborough learning center, the company announced today. For the HondaJet, the UK facility provides initial and recurrent pilot training, as well as other courses.
“As our fleet continues to increase in size, it is necessary for the HondaJet service, support, and training network to expand,” said Honda Aircraft president and CEO Michimasa Fujino. “We are pleased to announce that we have completed the installation of the second HondaJet flight simulator at Farnborough, which started its operations this week.”
For now, training for maintenance technicians is offered only at the FlightSafety HondaJet learning center in Greensboro, North Carolina. The training meets EASA (B1 and B2) and FAA requirements with courses covering initial, update, and practical needs, along with avionics, taxi movements, and engines. Supplemental training on the GE Honda HF120 engine and the Garmin G3000 avionics is also offered.
FlightSafety also provides courses for pilots and maintenance technicians online through its instructor-led LiveLearning and eLearning training systems.
