Saab Aircraft AB has recently been awarded an "Approved Training
Organization Certificate" and "Statement of Limitation" from Transport

Saab 340 and Saab 2000 Type Training including Engine Run qualification
for students with a Canadian mechanic license.

"With more Saab 340s entering service in Canada, training approval by
Transport Canada is an important milestone in our ability to support
this market. We are now able to provide Saab factory training to the
technicians and mechanics supporting our aircraft with the various Saab
operators," says John Belanger, Director, PR and Communications at Saab
Aircraft. "Our customers benefit through the availability of a high
quality training alternative; providing greater flexibility to meet
their individual needs."
