Russian Civil Aviation Authority certifies SAT to provide e-jet maintenance training

The civil aviation authority of the Russian Federation has certified Swiss AviationTraining to provide maintenance training for the Embraer 170 and 190 aircraft types.

SAT’s practically-oriented basic and further E-Jet training for technical personnel was formally approved by the Russian aviation authority for Levels B1, B2, B3 and C on November 6th.

SAT’s maintenance training meets all the provisions of EASA Part 147 and the corresponding requirements for China (CAAC Part 147) and Australia (CASA Part 147), and has already been approved by numerous other national aviation authorities. This latest certification, which has been issued for an initial two years, will enable SAT to further expand its range of E-Jet training products and services for the Russian market.

“The certification of our Embraer 170 and 190 technical training by the Russian civil aviation authority is a confirmation of our high quality and our outstanding training methods,” says Manfred Brennwald, the CEO of SAT. “This latest approval will now enable us to further develop our range of E-Jet training services, and brings us another step closer to establishing ourselves as a full E-Jet competence centre.”

With its multimedia training approach, SAT provides efficient and highly realistic technical training that is optimally aligned to the customer’s individual needs. The Level B1, B2, B3 and C courses which have now been certified by the Russian authorities qualify the technical staff concerned to perform comprehensive maintenance work on the Embraer 170 and 190 aircraft types.

SAT’s carefully-tailored technical training programmes combine advanced web-based training methods with many years of practical operational experience offered by its skilled and knowledgeable instructors. And this is another reason SAT is one of the leading addresses for the basic and further training of E-Jet maintenance personnel.
