L3 Technologies has announced that its Commercial Training Solutions (CTS) business has been selected by easyJet to provide simulator time on a new RealitySeven Full Flight Simulator (FFS) at the L3 CTS London Training Centre, a state-of-the-art facility being developed near London Gatwick Airport.

The two-year agreement, which begins in October 2017, will provide easyJet guaranteed simulator availability to help support its recurrent training program and recruitment strategy.

Training will commence on L3’s new A320 FFS, which is conveniently situated near easyJet’s base at Gatwick Airport before moving to L3’s new 150,000-square-foot London Training Centre in 2018.

Christopher E Kubasik of L3 said, “We are pleased that easyJet will utilise our flexible ‘power-by-the-hour’ training offering and will join us at our new London Training Centre when it opens next year.

“Our investment in the Centre, which will also be L3 CTS’s international headquarters and production facility, is a commitment from L3 Technologies to support our customers and is an important part of our growth strategy.”
