San Antonio, Texas, USA – Sino Swearingen Aircraft Corporation (“SSAC”) announced today that it has received FAA approval for its 14 CFR Part 141 Pilot School Certificate. In keeping with their goal of dedication to customer satisfaction, SSAC has made pilot training part of its core focus by offering factory flight training at its San Antonio location. This provides better and timelier access to Engineering, Production and Customer Support personnel with the hands-on knowledge to keep the training curriculum up to date, practical, and accurate.
Dr. Ching-Chiang Kuo, Chairman and CEO of SSAC, commented, “We are very proud of the work that our training department has done to get this accomplished. While we have been training pilots in our FAA approved 14 CFR Part 61 syllabus, the approval of the 141 school enables us to train the pilots in a more structured manner and demonstrates our commitment to a world class training organization. This will ensure that all of our customers receive the best training possible, and help to make the SJ30 and its crews the best performing in this class, but also the safest.”
Randolph P. Loveless, Manager of the FAA San Antonio Flight Standards District Office (SAT-FSDO) noted, “that the addition of the Part 141 Pilot Certificate today, in conjunction with the APIS and the Repair Station approval last year, dramatically increases the capability of Sino Swearingen Aircraft Corporation. We are proud to be a part of the continued progress of SSAC and look forward to working with them in future”.
Edward Gagnon, Vice President of Customer Support added “We’ve been working on this project for a long time. I extend my appreciation to our team for the excellent work they’ve done in developing the training curriculum and the pilot training manual. They also have to be commended for their professional delivery of the course. In addition, I want to acknowledge the FAA for its support, cooperation and dedication over the course of this project.”
Their Pilot Training as well as their Recurrent Pilot Training classes will be continuously provided to ensure maximum convenience to customers. Classes are being scheduled.
