Bombardier has made it easier for pilots to undergo recurrent training for its leading Challenger 605 and Challenger 650 business jets with an online remote training available for the ground school FAA-certified course. The new program delivers the same comprehensive and professional instruction that Bombardier is known for, while reducing the length of on-site training.
With more booking flexibility and a wider range of simulator time slots, pilots can now complete the simulator component of the course at Bombardier’s training centres in Montreal and Dallas. The updated ground school component, comprising of 15 hours of self-paced online training, can be completed at the pilot’s own convenience.
Once pilots complete the online component, they are welcomed by an instructor at the training centre to answer any training questions they may have, are provided the latest operational requirements and undergo a one-hour validation exam.
