Mechtronix Systems Inc., an MWC Company, last week sold an Airbus A330 Level D Full Flight Simulator (FFS) at the Paris Air Show. This is one of six simulators sold by the company since the start of 2011, with total contract values in excess of US$65 million at list price.
The order for the A330 FFS X to an undisclosed European customer confirms Mechtronix’s presence in the wide body simulation market and comes on the back of further orders for four FFS X Level D simulators and one FFT X simulator to airlines and independent training centers throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia during 2011, including most recently IFTC Istanbul (B737NG) and Portugal’s Sor Air (CJ3).
These orders confirm Mechtronix’ status as one of the world’s leading provider of training solutions for the civil aviation industry and shows strong market acceptance of the FFS X™ product which have already logged in excess of 150,000 hours at 99%+ reliability – which demonstrates the unique benefit of the FFS X™ architecture.
Fernando Petruzziello, CEO and Chairman of the Board, says that the company’s recent success reflects a wider market confidence: “The aviation industry is showing positive signs of recovery and we are benefiting as a result,” he says. “But even as market conditions improve, it is important that we continue to deliver high standard simulation and training technologies and services to meet our customers’ evolving demands.”
