Cessna Aircraft Co. has teamed with FlightSafety International to offer MX Advantage, a maintenance training program that will augment classroom training with hands-on training at a new facility in Wichita, Kan. The new MX Advantage program is designed to satisfy most international training requirements, in particular those of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).
“We already have a strong relationship with FlightSafety as a partner both for Citation flight training and maintenance training, so we are excited now about this new enhanced maintenance program targeting our major international markets,” said Jack Pelton, Cessna chairman, president and CEO. “MX Advantage combines the expertise of both companies for a high-quality training program – using FlightSafety’s classroom expertise and Cessna’s factory maintenance trainers to provide hands-on, type-specific training for our customers.”
The MX Advantage provides two weeks in the classroom and two weeks of supervised, hands-on maintenance training using Cessna Citations or factory authorized training devices.
