[Avionics Today 06-19-2015] Airbus and Aerolineas Argentinas have signed a strategic agreement to establish the first Airbus maintenance training collaboration in South America at the airline’s facilities in Buenos Aires. The venture will deliver maintenance and engineering training services for A320, A330 and A340 aircraft. The agreement will also provide Argentina’s flagship airline with Airbus Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)-backed maintenance training capabilities to its personnel, as well as to third-party customers in the region.
Besides integration of Aerolineas Argentinas instructors to the Airbus Maintenance Training Organization Exposition (MTOE), the agreement will also include access to Airbus courseware, instruction media, virtual tools, and real aircraft practice. Airbus’ Training Center hub in Miami will serve as a center-of-excellence for the Buenos Aires operations.
