With aviation training issues as the hot topic this month, it is interesting to note that Gulfstream are leading the way with their offer of free ramp handling training for FBOs, many of whom are deciding to become International Standard of Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) registered as a global commitment to quality and safety of service provision.
The subject of formal training has been increasingly discussed with so many different types of business aircraft now available. Issues have been raised concerning a wide range of maintenance sectors, from safety for ground handlers to training for IT data systems.
Gulfstream has launched an online training course for G450/G550/650 ground-handling modules. The course is free for all FBOs handling Gulfstream aircraft and all staff are being encouraged to take part. The course is cited as an excellent initial training and recurrent training for those who already handle the aircraft. All aspects of ground servicing are covered within the modules.
Once completed, Gulfstream can issue recognition to FBOs taking part in the form of a display plaque for the facility in addition to a mention in the Gulfstream Journal Broadcast, mygulfstream.com.
All FBOs interested in taking part in the course should contact Gulfstream at the following address ~ firstname.lastname@example.org.
