Maxcraft Avionics send technicians out for specialized training
This year, two of Maxcraft’s major clients purchased Airbus EC135 helicopters. Due to the close working relationship between Maxcraft and these companies, as well as the increasing proliferation of these aircraft in general, two of our technicians were sent to an intense 10-day EC135 Avionics Systems Course offered by Airbus Helicopters in Grand Prairie, Texas. Overall the course addressed Avionics, Electrical Systems, Flight Control Display Systems, and Auto Flight Control Systems. The entire course was followed up by an exam and critique to make sure our technicians had full retention of the material covered.
This training anticipates the maintenance and support needs of EC135 operators everywhere, and underpinnes our proactive commitment to staying abreast of emerging technologies, standards, and practices in commercial aviation. As Eurocopter sells more EC135’s, Maxcraft technicians are sure to be armed with the knowledge, training, and skills necessary to maintain and support them.
Here ‘s some feedback from one of our technicians:
“ I found the course very worthwhile and there certainly was allot of information to digest. The hands on experience and simulator time was very useful, and the instructor was super knowledgeable. They even gave us homework at night! It taught me how the system works and with my troubleshooting skills I’m ready for anything the EC135 throws at me!”.
