Standardized Training Program for Gulfstream GV Released

The FAA has released the first aircraft standardized training curricula for use in training pilots at Part 135 operators. The FAA is seeking comments on the training program for the Gulfstream GV-series aircraft, due by November 9, 2022.

The Standardized Curricula concept was initiated by the Air Carrier Training ARC, whose recommendations led to the creation of the Training Standardization Working Group (TSWG). Overseen by the FAA’s Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee (ARAC), the TSWG is tasked with developing standard training curricula for use by operators using Part 142 training centers.

NATA staff and members have been instrumental in the development of this program. Voluntary adoption of the standardized training program by a Part 135 operator will offer both administrative and safety benefits while also reducing overall compliance costs. NATA strongly encourages operators of the GV aircraft to review and provide feedback on the training documents. In addition, all operators are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the document and provide comments as appropriate.

As the first training curricula drafted by the TSWG, the GV-series program establishes the framework for development of all future programs. The FAA is beginning work to craft curricula for the next aircraft targeted for the program, and ultimately intends to make available standardized training curricula for many aircraft commonly used in Part 135 operations.
