Olympia, WA (PRWEB) February 28, 2011
FACTS® Training International announced today that they have developed a new emergency procedures training course specifically for Boeing Business Jet operators. Open to all crewmembers, owners and frequent flyers; the FACTS® BBJ three and a half day program for initial, and two-day and a half day program for recurrent, combine classroom instruction with extensive hands-on equipment drills to provide an elite training experience for BBJ operators.
Crews will receive instruction on land and water evacuation procedures including water ditching, inflight and ground emergencies, inflight medical, smoke and live fire fighting, turbulence, decompression, hypoxia awareness, crew coordination and more, using BBJ specific safety and emergency equipment.
“I’ve been training BBJ operators for years, and the course we’ve created at FACTS is by far the best,” said Pattie Adams, Lead Trainer for the new BBJ program. “These crews are not simply going to meet their training requirements, they’re going to retain the knowledge and save lives.”
Boeing Business Jet flight departments typically operate under an FAR 125 certificate required for aircraft capable of carrying nineteen passengers or more and that exceed a certain weight. These aircraft are required to have extra equipment such as evacuation slides and additional emergency exits and doors; and to fly with crews who are trained to operate this aircraft-specific equipment. The FACTS® BBJ course incorporates actual BBJ doors, windows and slides into simulated emergency scenarios and procedures training so crews gain intimate knowledge of their operation, weight, and performance.
“Our FACTS® West Coast Training Center at Long Beach is the most complete BBJ specific training facility in the U.S.,” said Jeffrey Roberts, CEO AirCare Solutions Group. “It provides an operator the unique opportunity to utilize type-specific training tools along with FACTS’ internationally recognized emergency procedures training methodology and curriculums.”
The BBJ Crew Training will be part of regularly scheduled classes at FACTS’ Long Beach, California facility (LGB); or flight departments can enquire about custom training that fits their schedule.
