Spirit Airlines Launches First Airbus Competence Training Suite in Americas

Spirit Airlines, a low-cost carrier based in Miramar, Florida, is preparing for the installation of the first Airbus Competence Training (ACT) classroom in the Americas.

 The training suite is being set-up at Spirit’s new maintenance facilities in Detroit, Michigan (U.S.). Spirit’s maintenance personnel and engineers will receive initial and recurrent training in the new A320 ACT classroom.

“We are excited to continue our great partnership with Airbus, and delighted with the prospects of this new Detroit training facility,” said John Bendoraitis, Spirit's Chief Operating Officer. “The advanced training opportunities for our Technical Operations Team Members that the facility provides will allow Spirit to stay updated with the latest technology that Airbus develops.”

ACT is an operationally oriented, scenario-based program focused on a ‘learning by doing’ approach. It allows for both theoretical – with animated system descriptions – and practical troubleshooting and maintenance tasks. Spirit Airlines and Airbus have signed a five-year agreement for the A320 ACT Suite.
