The Aircraft Manufacturer Flight Training Association (AMFTA)

For years, aircraft manufacturers have worked independently to enhance flight safety via flight training.

Nevertheless, when taking a step back, it became obvious that it would be beneficial for aircraft manufacturer flight training organisations to address common flight training challenges together.

It was with this in mind, that Airbus, Boeing, COMAC, and Embraer worked together to form an organisation: Aircraft Manufacturer Flight Training Association (AMFTA), composed of the Heads of Flight Training and their representatives, building upon our collective experiences and expertise to create a harmonized global standard for flight training.

AMFTA is actively working on flight training and training-related operations recommendations to enhance flight training and aviation safety around the world.

The set-up of this game-changer is now complete. We will share with you the members, the vision, the ambition and main goals, together with AMFTA’s first set of recommendations and planning.
