Five pilot training centres across the world from Lithuania to Vietnam are to benefit from a new multi-million dollar deal between BAA Training and L3Harris Technologies.
A total of nine L3Harris RealitySeven full flight simulators are to be installed in the centres over the next two years. The deal is the biggest ever for an independent training centre.
BAA Training has a global expansion plan and will install the nine full flight simulators from both the Boeing and Airbus aircraft family, including Boeing 737NG, Airbus A320neo, and other types, in two phases.
The first four full flight simulators are scheduled to be assembled, approved and ready for training in 9 to 12 months, and will be placed at BAA Training headquarters in Vilnius and BAA Training Spain training centre in Barcelona.
The second phase will be implemented by the first quarter of 2022, placing the remaining five full-flight simulators at BAA Training training centres in Spain, Vietnam and Italy, where BAA Training is set to open a new training centre.
L3Harris’s RealitySeven is a state-of-the-art full flight simulator with digital electrical control loading and electric motion systems to reduce power consumption and operational costs.
“BAA Training’s selection is testament to the quality of our devices and the skills and expertise of the engineers who develop them,” said Robin Glover-Faure, VP Sales and Marketing, Commercial Aviation, L3Harris.
Egle Vaitkeviciute, CEO at BAA Training, added, “Following the aircraft preference among the operators in Europe and Asia, we are not only set to provide training solutions of the specific types, and do that in the most convenient locations for clients, but also to ensure the highest training equipment standards.”
