Flight Training Adelaide, the fast-expanding Australian-based aviation training business, will be providing training on three Mechtronix flight simulation training devices in its new Simulation Center in Parafield Airport by the end of the year. The three simulators consist of two Ascent® XJ Trainers™ and one A320 FFT X™-MPL.
FTA’s first Ascent® XJ Trainer™ is beginning its second year of operation. The second XJ Trainer™, recently delivered to Australia, marks the successful conclusion of FTA’s multi-million dollar simulator investment program of the last two years. Once qualified and ready for training, it will double FTA’s capabilities for jet transition and MCC training as well as MPL phase ll.
FTA’s CEO Pine Pienaar has stated an ambition to provide the very best MPL training solutions to the world’s very best airlines, “Working closely with Mechtronix is enabling us to achieve our vision for the region and deliver the highest quality training programmes,” he said. “The response from current and prospective customers has already been extremely positive and we are now looking to build on the excitement that the delivery of these new simulators has created.”
