Air Transportation Operations

Our Mission

AMA-240 fulfills the Flight Standards Service of the Aviation Safety Line of Business, domestic and worldwide air carrier pilot, cabin safety and dispatcher training needs. This is centered on FAA Aviation Safety Inspectors (ASI) who have responsibilities for Air Transportation Operations, including Management ASIs and other similar FAA support professionals. This training may include students from other Services such as Aircraft Certification (AIR) and Security and Hazardous Material Safety (ASH), and industry personnel in some courses.

Pilot oriented courses include Flight Simulator Evaluation; Part 142 Training Centers; Safety Assurance System (SAS) for Managers; and Crew Resource Management. More generalized courses include NextGen Technologies; Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP); Air Carrier Practical Application Workshop; WebOPPS; Flight Validation of Satellite-Based Performance; Oceanic and International Operations; and Flight Dispatcher Indoctrination.

The training begins with new-hire indoctrination and continues with technical, certification and surveillance skill set development training throughout the FAA professional's career. A wide array of training methods and techniques are used to continually improve training outcomes, enhancing the abilities of our FAA public safety professionals.

In addition to conducting the above mentioned courses, AMA-240 instructors play an active and vital role in the development and revision of courses in concert with the Training Development Division (AFS-500) and the various policy divisions.

In Fiscal Year 2014 the AMA-240 Air Transportation Operations Branch conducted 341 classes with completions of 5,195 learners.
