Training of ground test technicians: traduttore -- traditore

After a theoretical phase of familiarisation with the aircraft systems, trouble-shooting and functional tests, ground test technicians take training courses for cabin crew, courses in radiotelephony and taxiing. The next phase is practical while the trainee works with an instructor.

The following points are notably addressed:
  • low speed taxi
  • conduct of ground test
  • participation in accelerate-stops
  • production flights
  • conduct of tests in Customer Acceptance Manual and associated tests
  • use of technical documentation and software
  • training in pressurisation tests.
Practical parts of this training are accomplished in the airplane and in the simulator.

A refreshment session is performed in a simulator every two years for ground test technicians.
