FAA selects Naples School to train Safety Inspectors

The Federal Aviation Administration has selected
Europe-American Aviation to train its General Aviation Safety Inspectors with two
courses: Indoctrination and Light Twin Refresher. Technology is advancing so rapidly
that the FAA decided to incorporate specialized classes to keep their General Aviation
Safety Inspectors up-to-date on the latest aviation technology and equipment in the new
and modern aircraft. “We are honored that the FAA will do their training at our facility in
Naples,” states Mr. Mike Wilson, Chief Flight Instructor.

The Federal Aviation Administration has selected
Europe-American Aviation to train its General Aviation Safety Inspectors with two
courses: Indoctrination and Light Twin Refresher. Technology is advancing so rapidly
that the FAA decided to incorporate specialized classes to keep their General Aviation
Safety Inspectors up-to-date on the latest aviation technology and equipment in the new
and modern aircraft. “We are honored that the FAA will do their training at our facility in
Naples,” states Mr. Mike Wilson, Chief Flight Instructor. Mr. Wilson continues, “It gives
Europe-American Aviation the opportunity to help shape the future of how the FAA will
standardize and train pilots of the future.” Many aircraft manufacturers like Diamond
are installing state of the art equipment in their airplanes. This advanced equipment
makes flying an airplane safer and easier than the older planes.

Europe-American Aviation will start the FAA training by offering two courses. The first
class is the General Aviation indoctrination course, a mandatory class for FAA Safety
Inspectors if they wish to continue as an FAA Safety Inspector. The second class is a
Multi-engine Light Twin Refresher Course (LTR). The FAA Safety Inspectors are
required to take this course every two years to maintain their FAA Safety Inspector
certification. The first course started on May 20th, 2008

Mr. Wilson notes, “Europe-American Aviation has brought in additional airplanes to
assist with the new classes and now incorporates fourteen aircraft, all which are less
than two years since manufactured.” In addition, for the first time in the United States, a
specialized Flight Training Device (FTD) by Diamond Simulation has been incorporated
in the training of the FAA Safety Inspector classes.

The FAA first noticed Europe-American Aviation a little more than a year ago when one
of their Safety Inspectors took personal training to advance his own knowledge of
technically advanced aircraft. He was so impressed with the training, equipment and
Europe-American Aviation’s operations, he communicated to the FAA that Europe-
American Aviation would be a great partner for training.
