TRU Simulation + Training has signed an agreement with Avianca, a leading Latin American airline headquartered in Colombia, for the purchase of a full flight simulator (FFS) and a flat panel trainer (FPT) for the new Airbus A320neo.
The full flight simulator, scheduled to be delivered in the third quarter of 2016, will be installed in Avianca's new training center in Bogota, Colombia.
George Karam, general manager and vice president of TRU's Air Transport division commented: "This new agreement marks the third full flight simulator that TRU has delivered to the airline, including ATR and A320 full flight simulators."
The new FFS will be convertible to support both the legacy A320 with its CFM56 and IAV2500 engines as well as the A320neo with the CRM and Pratt & Whitney engines. The device features the TRU proprietary visual display system compatible with the latest projector technologies, aXion image generator, MOOG electric motion system and state-of-the-art instructor station.
