TRU Simulation + Training Inc. has been selected by Qingdao Airlines for the delivery of one Airbus A320 full flight simulator and one A320 flat panel trainer (FPT).

The TRU FFS X™ will be equipped with a new EP-8100 image generator from Rockwell Collins, a Moog fully electric motion system, a front-projected collimated visual display and TRU’s latest generation of an intuitive instructor operating station that includes Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) functionalities.

Both devices will be delivered in July 2017 to Qingdao Airline’s Training Centre in Longkou, China (Shandong Province).

Qingdao Airlines will adopt the Train@Home model that is successfully being used by airlines worldwide, and is providing substantial savings on the cost of their pilot training operations. This training model also increases the availability of an airline’s pilots to fly.

Qingdao Airlines is a fast-growing recently established airline and currently has nine new Airbus A320 aircraft in its fleet with plans to expand its fleet to 50 aircraft by 2020 and 100 aircraft by 2025.
