Aircraft Maintenance Training

Aircraft Maintenance Training for Airlines, MRO & Individuals

In today’s competitive airline environment, keeping training cost under control is important for airline maintenance departments. It can be a challenge to balance the need to reduce cost, while maintaining the highest quality of training.

At Pan Am International Flight Academy we understand this challenge. With our origins being Pan Am Airline’s Training Department, we have a better understanding of airlines need to maintain the highest training standards while keeping cost under control. Pan Am Academy’s maintenance training programs have been developed with these goals in mind.
