According to the agreement, SAS Maintenance Training together with SAS Flight Academy's maintenance training department will be the effective producer of a wide span of JAR 147 approved maintenance training courses. SAS Flight Academy will use its already established sales organisation. The new pedagogical method that SAS Maintenance Training recently introduced, which enables a high training quality at a competitive price, will be the base in the training. The partnership between the two organisations will make an optimum usage of resources possible, but also centralised planning, professional sales and marketing organisation, standardised course products, and centralised development of JAR 147 products, such as A319/A320/A321, A330, A340, B737Classic, B737NG, B767, MD-80, MD-90 and DC-9. SAS Maintenance Training is a department within SAS Technical Services, which is a Business Unit within the SAS Group.
