Gulfstream G450/G550/G650/GVII-G500/G600 Ground Handling & Servicing (eLearning)

Ground handling and servicing is challenging given the time pressure and ramp congestion in today's Fixed Based Operations (FBO). Approximately 27,000 ramp accidents and incidents occur annually worldwide, resulting in injuries and in considerable costs to the FBO and aircraft owner.

There are non-scored knowledge checks throughout the course so that you may test your understanding. Once you've successfully completed the course, you are issued a certificate of completion.
