TRU Simulation + Training has completed the delivery of an A320 full flight simulator (FFS) to Avianca Airlines, the national airline of Colombia.
The new A320 FFS successfully achieved Level D qualification by the Colombian Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). As part of the FFS suite package, TRU has also completed the delivery of an A320 flat panel trainer (FPT) to further support Avianca's procedural training needs.
TRU will deliver a software package to update the FFS to the A320ceo and A320neo models in the near future. The delivery will mark the introduction of the airline's first quad-engine option training capability for their A320 FFS. The A320ceo/neo differs from the standard A320 aircraft by offering new engine options along with the fuel-saving sharklet wingtip feature.
