The certification also covers helicopter maintenance B1.3 and electrical/avionics B2 theory and practical training for all approved aircraft including for the Bell 206, Bell 407 and Bell 429 product lines.
The facility has also been added as an approved CAAS certified part 147 satellite training facility of the BTA and received authorization to expand the current offerings to include six new training courses:
· Bell 212: B1.3 and B2
· Bell 212 and Bell 412: Differences B1.3 and Differences B2

The BTA, established in 1946, has a comprehensive collection of helicopter maintenance training devices that give students the opportunity to enhance their classroom knowledge with hands-on application. Earlier this year, Bell Helicopter announced the expansion of maintenance training offerings at the Singapore Service Center to include the Bell 206 and Bell 412 maintenance training aircraft.
