Jet Aviation Staffing has launched a new global pilot training programme to be offered exclusively through the hullo Aircrew platform, which connects freelance aircrew with operators.

Launched in partnership with FlightSafety International, the programme allows pilots to complete recurrent training.

hullo is developing its technology to become a single source for freelancers to access the best trips, receive payment quickly, and easily access a range of training programs.

“We recognise the financial commitment freelance pilots must make to maintain a type rating and are here to support them,” said Elaine Lapotosky, senior director Jet Aviation Staffing.

“By assuming upfront financial responsibility for the training, pilots have the ability to focus on their career without financial burden. FlightSafety is known for offering state-of-the-art training, and by utilising the technology of hullo Aircrew, we can easily connect pilots to FlightSaftey, keeping them flying.

Steve Gross, senior vice president, sales and marketing, FlightSafety International, said: “Our highly experienced instructors provide a variety of courses designed to provide pilots with the knowledge and skills required to ensure the safety of their passengers, other crewmembers, and the aircraft.”

Steve Payne, chief operations officer, hullo Aircrew, added: “At hullo Aircrew, we are committed to enhancing our technology platform to provide the most value for freelance aircrew.

“Partnering with Jet Aviation to offer training to pilots is a natural evolution of our platform, and we are proud to be part of this new service provided by Jet Aviation Staffing and FlightSafety International.”
