Lithuanian MRO specialist FL Technics has extended its technical training portfolio with the addition of type training for the Airbus A350 aircraft. 

FL Technics announced that it has recently received an approval to provide type training for A350 aircraft, which includes both theoretical courses and practical training. 

Algirdas Kadaksys, deputy CEO for technical training at FL Technics, notes that in order to become more efficient, sustainable and reduce environmental impact, many airlines and lessors are transitioning from legacy aircraft to new generation aircraft. 

“As a result, there is a greater need for personnel with the required competencies and practical knowledge to support and operate these fleets, and the balance between narrow- and widebody aircraft is being redefined,” he explains.

“To support these industry changes, our team is proactively creating training materials and courses. Our goal is not only to advance our own business but also to sustain the growth of the industry in a responsible manner,” he adds.

In addition to type training for A350 aircraft, FL Technics also offers type training for A330, Boeing 777 and 787 aircraft. Furthermore, it also provides a range of specialized courses and online lessons, covering a full scope of aviation training. 

Over the past year, FL Technics has significantly added more capabilities to its European business, including setting up wheels and brakes repair shop in Hanover. It has recently updated its CAMO (Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization) certification to add capabilities for A220, Boeing 737 MAX and 787 aircraft.
