No-Cost Training for Recently Unemployed Business Aircraft Pilots and Technicians

Business aircraft pilots and technicians who have lost their jobs as a result of the economic downturn now have one less thing to worry about thanks to our new Proficiency Protection program, available exclusively from FlightSafety International, the world leader in professional aviation training. The program will help these Customers maintain their proficiency while they pursue new employment opportunities.

Pilots who have become involuntarily unemployed can receive recurrent training at no cost in an aircraft type they trained on under a FlightSafety Full Service agreement. Technicians enrolled in the Master Technician program can receive the next course toward their rating at no cost.

Who can take advantage of this no-cost training?
Those who met the following criteria at the time of job loss.
  • Was employed full time as a pilot or technician of a business aircraft.
  • Was training with FlightSafety under a Full Service pilot contract in good standing or enrolled in the Master Technician program.
  • Became involuntarily unemployed as a result of staff reduction or job elimination since Jan. 1, 2009.
  • Pilots and maintenance technicians who have been provided FlightSafety training by a company, organization or individual since their job loss; or who have been laid off temporarily, furloughed or become unemployed for other reasons are not eligible.
What training will I receive and when?
  • Pilots can receive a recurrent training course in an aircraft type the pilot trained on under that Full Service agreement.
  • Technicians can receive the next course required in their pursuit of a Master Technician rating for the aircraft type they specified at the time of enrollment in the program.
  • The no-cost training program will remain in effect until Dec. 31, 2009.
  • FlightSafety will schedule the training on an as-available basis once eligibility has been verified.
  • Training must be completed while the pilot or technician remains unemployed and must begin prior to Dec. 31, 2009
