In May the FAA extended its contract with Rubicon for aircraft systems training for airworthiness inspectors on the following aircraft: EMB-170, A-300, A-310, A-340, CRJ-200, CRJ-700, DC-9, MD-80, B737-200, and Eclipse 500. Rubicon president, Richard D’Loss, responded, “We are pleased that the FAA is showing confidence in the Rubicon product by extending our option agreement for another year. Although some of the aircraft are legacy models, the Bombardier, Eclipse, and Embraer requirements provided the impetus for us to expand our product line. We look forward to another year with the FAA.”
