Bombardier has introduced a new Challenger 300 simulator at its Dallas Fort-Worth (DFW) Airport facility which was certified by the FAA in May 2017 and is now ready for training.

With six Level D full-flight simulators, one flight training device, 21 interactive classrooms and numerous part task training devices, Bombardier says its Dallas Training Centre can train up to 3,000 pilots and 280 maintenance technicians each year.

“Bombardier is committed to offering in-house OEM developed courseware for flight and technical training, so our operators have the most up to date, tailored knowledge and technology at their fingertips,” commented Andy Nureddin, VP Customer Support and Training at Bombardier Business Aircraft. “We not only design, build and maintain the aircraft, we fly them too, so operators who train with us benefit from our real world expertise by learning from one of 140 world-class instructors who fly or maintain the aircraft themselves.”

The company says the new simulator will complement Bombardier’s existing Challenger 350 aircraft training program at the location.
