HeliTSA’s AW139 and S-92 type courses have been granted European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part 147 Maintenance Training Organisation approval.
This approval comes after HeliTSA transitioned to its own Part 147 late last year. It makes HeliTSA the only Australian organisation currently running type training on the AW139 and S-92 with both CASA and EASA approvals.
“This approval is attractive to engineers with an EASA licence, as well as CASA-licensed engineers who want to access the best standard of training,” says Pep Sayabath, HeliTSA Co-Founder and Avionics Instructor.
“We initially launched with EASA approval, and the transition to our own Part 147 means that our courseware has now been scrutinised by EASA twice and passed.
“Developing the materials for each type course is an intensive process that takes 12 months, so we are really pleased to see our efforts recognised.”
Being an Australian-based provider makes HeliTSA a cost-effective option for EASA-licensed engineers, due to the exchange rate of the Australian dollar.
Uptake of the AW139 continues to grow worldwide, with a fleet of more than 900 aircraft currently in operation around the world.
The S-92 is a leading choice for offshore operations globally, with 90% of the fleet’s registered flight hours being for offshore oil operations. There are currently more than 300 S-92 aircraft operating in 92 countries around the world.
