Airbus Flight Academy ensures, since 2006, its own fleet management (line and base maintenance, CAMO, supply chain…) of Grob 120 training aircraft. These aircraft are operated by the Pilot Training School of the French Air force at Cognac airbase.
Since 2012, Airbus Flight Academy also ensures these services for the Embraer Xingu fleet for the benefit of the Military Transport Pilot Training School at Avord airbase and for the French Navy at Lann Bihoué Naval airbase.
Base maintenance is organized according to the company approvals as “per flight hour airworthiness management services” proposed to all CIRRUS aircraft owners who are expecting a unique interface for the management of their aeronautical assets.
These activities can be proposed on request and on-site, for example radio instruments ground test including, if required, flight test for validation.

Every aircraft under the Airbus Flight Academy responsibility is maintained in the best conditions by technical experts in a secured, controlled and modern environment
