AXIS Flight Training Systems is to deliver a new ATR 72-600 Level D full-flight simulator (FFS) to FSTC's facilities in Delhi during the first half of 2018.

As part of the deal, AXIS’ second with FSTC, the company will also deliver a number of complementary lower-level training devices to Delhi, including an IPT, that will be ready-for-training during November of this year.

Sanjay Mandavia, a director and founder of FSTC, commented, “We are excited to announce to our valued customers that we have expanded our training infrastructure to address the demand for ATR 72-600 training to be provided in India.”

"With this new delivery from AXIS, FSTC will be the first independent operator in India to offer a range of new training solutions and equipment for the rapidly expanding ATR 72-600 fleet," added Captain DS Basraon, co-founder and director of FSTC.

Niall Olver, Chairman of AXIS, noted, “AXIS is delighted that this device builds on our already very strong relationship with FSTC. We share FSTC's positive outlook on the market for training both locally here in India as well as in the region where FSTC count their clients. Being operational in 2018, this delivery is perfectly timed to address an increasing requirement for local training infrastructure to support the successful and growing installed base of ATR 72-600 aircraft in the region.”
