Airways Aviation has purchased a state-of-the-art MPS Centaur FTD-1 B737-NG simulator for airline pilot training. The Centaur FTD-1 B737-NG is built by Multi Pilot Simulations (MPS) in The Netherlands and is designed for multi-crew, jet orientation and B737 type rating training. The simulator will be located at the new Airways Aviation Flight Training Centre in Brisbane, Australia.
Airways Aviation has Pilot Training Academies and Aviation Foundation Schools in locations across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia, offering pilot training courses together with aviation services.
The addition of the FTD-1 B737 simulator further expands the training opportunities Airways Aviation provides in Australia, to both the domestic and international market. Operations of the FTD-1 simulator are expected to begin in early 2016.
Stewart Ford, Airways Aviation Australia National Operations Manager said of the purchase, “The new MPS Centaur FTD-1 B737 will enable us to offer a full range of advanced flight and type rating training packages, tailored to airline demand, thus enhancing the quality and cost effectiveness of our programs.”
