SuperJet International (SJI) has started the flight crew training course for Armavia pilots at its training centre in Moscow.
SJI, which is in charge of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) sales in Western markets, is also responsible for training and after-sales support all over the world. The company has established two facilities based in Venice and in Moscow for its training business.
The Type Rating Course, managed by SJI instructors, will involve Armavia crews and will have a duration of 24 days.
This is the first course for Armavia pilots after the start of Aeroflot Training Courses on 21 February. The SJI training centre is currently providing Aeroflot with flight crew, cabin crew and maintenance staff training courses.
