Airbus Helicopters and UTair have extended their training agreement past an original three-year arrangement. Through this program, pilots and technical personnel are trained on the Ecureuil-family rotorcraft and also participate in courses for the AS350 B3/В3е and AS355 N/NP at UTair’s personnel training center (PTC). UTair’s PTC, certified by Airbus Helicopters in 2011, is one of Russia’s largest civil aviation training facilities and is also the first company-approved external training center worldwide that belongs to an external partner. Over the past three years, UTair and Airbus have trained 114 pilots and more than 100 technicians at the PTC.
