BSA adds 737 family to its training portfolio

Shonu Bamrah, Chief Executive Officer, BSA

EASA Part-147 approved training organization, British School of Aviation (BSA), has secured approval from the U.K. Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to deliver face-to-face and online synchronous engineer type rating training for the Boeing 737 Classic, NG and MAX aircraft.

Delivered by Boeing trained instructors from its facility at London Luton Airport, as well as online, BSA will provide delegates with the necessary theoretical training, group learning and revision sessions and examinations. The final practical element will be delivered on the relevant aircraft type, in accordance with COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

In response to the restrictions on global travel, BSA had already pivoted its training proposition to an online model, which launched in July with a Boeing 787 synchronous type rating course for B1/B2-qualified engineers.

Commenting on its latest approval from the U.K. CAA, Shonu Bamrah, Chief Executive Officer of BSA, said that the training company was already investing in new training methodologies prior to the coronavirus outbreak, in order to reduce costs for the aviation industry:

“Even before COVID-19, BSA was in advanced discussions with a number of international customers regarding the merits of online and virtual reality-based training, in response to the economic challenges faced by the industry. This process has been accelerated by the impact of the pandemic, so BSA’s successful introduction of a synchronous online platform marks an important step forward in the development of innovative new approaches to delivering cost-efficient mandated training.”
