Conference FlightSafety international Announces New Aviation Maintenance Management Program


FlightSafety International recently announced a new Aviation Maintenance Management Program developed and offered in conjunction with Service Elements.


This new 3-day course is provided at FlightSafety’s Maintenance Training Center in Dallas. It is designed to enhance the skills of current aircraft maintenance department managers and to help those who aspire to hold leadership positions in the future.


“The Aviation Maintenance Management Program will help current and future managers to develop and remain current on the skills needed to effectively direct an aircraft maintenance organization,” said Paul Kuchta, director of Training Operations Maintenance.


The course addresses management challenges and trends identified by experienced maintenance department leaders, instructors and other experts. The modules include leadership qualities, foundations of


management, service culture,


communications, accountability and delegation, finance, team building, and others.


FlightSafety offers a wide variety of other professional development training courses through its Master Technician program. They are designed to provide aircraft maintenance personnel with the skills needed to interact effectively with customers, managers and co-workers, and help them to prepare for additional responsibilities or a management position.


The industry-leading FlightSafety Master Technician program provides in-depth instruction and real-world practical training. This innovative and unique program is designed to enable technicians to further enhance their contributions to the safety, reliability, and operating efficiency of the aircraft or components they support and maintain. This program was developed in close collaboration with aircraft manufacturers and the experience and expertise of FlightSafety’s highly qualified maintenance training professionals. There are currently more than 3,000 FlightSafety master technicians worldwide.


The Federal Aviation Administration is planning to skip a year and host the next FAA International Rotorcraft Safety Conference


in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in October 2018.


Before the FAA announces an agenda, they would like to hear from the helicopter community about what issues, trends or safety concerns the conference should address. Please email ideas to conference coordinator Gene Trainor at eugene.trainor@faa.gov.
