- FlightSafety continues as the worldwide Authorized Training Provider (ATP) for Q-Series aircraft flight and technical training.
Bombardier Commercial Aircraft announced today that its current ATP Agreement with FlightSafety International has been extended for 10 years. The parties celebrated the announcement at a ceremony at New York’s La Guardia Airport.
Under the ATP Agreement, FlightSafety uses a Bombardier-approved syllabus to deliver high-quality flight and technical training to operators of Q100, Q200, Q300 and Q400 aircraft.
“For over 28 years, FlightSafety has been a dedicated training provider, collaborating with us to train our Q-Series aircraft customers - always upholding our mutual commitment to put customers first and provide non-stop care,” said Todd Young, Vice President, Customer Services, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “We’re proud to confirm our long-term collaboration and are confident that FlightSafety’s global network of simulators will continue to offer operators Bombardier-approved training close to their home bases.”
“This extension was the natural next step and we are pleased to continue to serve Bombardier and its customers with our long-standing Authorized Training Provider agreement,” said David Davenport, Senior Vice President, FlightSafety International. “FlightSafety is committed to working with Bombardier to provide operators with the highest quality training, using advanced-technology, full-flight simulators at conveniently located facilities around the world.”

Other Q-Series aircraft simulators are located in Seattle, WA; St Louis, MO; Atlanta, GA; Farnborough, United Kingdom; Johannesburg, South Africa and Tokyo, Japan.
