Ryanair and MPS have entered into definitive agreements for the delivery of three MPS B737-NG FTD1 fixed base simulators. In addition, parties have agreed on the option to deliver a substantial number of simulators over the next 10 years as part of Ryanair's overall pilot training program.
The first device will be delivered in December of this year, to be installed in Dublin. The remaining two simulators will enter service early next year located at Ryanair's facility at East Midlands Airport, UK. Part of the agreement is an option to supply B737-MAX devices or to convert the installed simulators into B737-MAX configuration. In addition to the simulators, Ryanair and MPS will cooperate in the development and implementation of new and unique training solutions, which can ultimately become available to other MPS users.
