Monday, July 12, 2010


On Saturday the 18th of July 2010 a contract was signed between Flight Training Adelaide (FTA) and the Rescue and Salvage Bureau of China (RSB,) to train a new course of helicopter pilots. The training will be a full rotary wing program to issue a Commercial Pilot Licence Helicopter – CPL (H) to meet the standards of the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department (CAD) as well as CASA.
On contract signature, Pine Pienaar, FTA’s CEO said: “We are honoured to have extended our training partnership with the RSB. Our current program is demonstrating the success and strength of our partnership.
As an ex helicopter pilot myself I understand the importance of high quality training delivered in a safe environment and I am delighted that the RSB identifies these qualities in the way FTA is training the RSB cadets.
I look forward to a long lasting partnership with the RSB and would like to publicly thank the RSB for their continued support of our college”
