[Avionics Today 05-21-15] TRU Simulation + Training will provide entitlement training for Textron Aviation customers who purchase new production Beechcraft King Air 250, 350i/ER and C90GTx turboprops equipped with the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics system. Entitlement training for the models can include a combination of differences, initial type-rating and recurrent training for pilots and maintenance training for aircraft technicians.
For pilots, training will be offered in TRU’s new ProFlight training facility located near Tampa, Fla. The new Tampa facility is expected to receive both FAA certification as a Part 142 satellite training center and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification as an Aircraft Training Organization (ATO).
For aircraft maintenance technicians, training will be offered in TRU Simulation + Training’s newly renovated space located on the Textron Aviation Mid-Continent campus in Wichita, Kan.
