Statement from Airbus
Airbus has just signed an agreement with the Indian Institute of Aeronautics (IIA) Group for the use of the newly developed training solution ‘Airbus Competence Training (ACT) for Academy’ in their curriculum. India is the fourth country to adopt it after France, USA and Turkey confirming its utility and relevance for academic students worldwide. “ACT for Academy” is an adaptation for schools and universities of Airbus’ professional maintenance training solution (“ACT Suite”) used by many Type Training organizations worldwide. It aims at familiarising students with the latest Airbus aircraft technology and maintenance procedures in a classroom environment.
It gives us immense pleasure to be the launch customer for the establishment of ‘Airbus ACT for Academy’ at IIA’s New Delhi campus. This training solution will support the curriculum of DGCA & EASA Part 147 for approved Maintenance Training Organisations and staff. It will not only corroborate a remarkable feat in the basic training standards but in parallel boost the employability skills of our students by upscaling their knowledge and skill levels as desired by the aviation industry
