TRU Simulation + Training has signed an agreement with Icelandair to provide a Boeing 737 MAX full flight simulator (FFS) to its flight training center in Reykjavik, Iceland. The device is planned to be delivered in mid 2018.
The new FFS will be the second device delivered to Icelandair's Flight Training Center. The training center currently has a B757 FFS, which was delivered in late 2015.
Icelandair will adopt the Train@Home model that is successfully being used by airlines worldwide which is providing substantial savings on the cost of pilot training operations. This training model also increases the availability of an airline's pilots to fly.
