This week at the National Agricultural Aviation Association (NAAA) Ag Aviation Expo in Orlando, Florida, Brian Hahn, Air Tractor’s Director of Training will be at the Air Tractor exhibit to provide information about the company’s new Air Tractor Maintenance Familiarization Course.

The course is designed to familiarize maintenance technicians with Air Tractor airframe characteristics, structures, flight controls and systems as well as the interface between the P&WC PT6A powerplant, Hartzell propeller and Air Tractor airframe. There will also be some hands-on time for processes that are commonly performed on Air Tractor aircraft.

The familiarization courses allow attendees to address specific challenges that they may have encountered and allows much one-on-one interaction with the instructors.

Hahn reports there are still a few seats available for the next Air Tractor Familiarization class, scheduled for December 9-13, 2019. More classes are scheduled through 2020.

Air Tractor hosts the courses at their headquarters and manufacturing facilities in Olney, Texas. Hahn says that classes can also be conducted at customer facilities upon request. “Sometimes it makes better sense economically for an instructor to go to the customer instead of making customers come to Olney,” Hahn said. “We will go where we’re needed.”
