FlightSafety International has received orders for full flight simulators from Aeroméxico Connect, S7 Airlines of Russia and SF Airlines of China.
Aeroméxico Connect is to receive its second Embraer E190 FFS during the second quarter of 2018 at the Aeroméxico Training Center in Mexico City.
“We are pleased that Aeroméxico Connect has selected FlightSafety to build a second full flight simulator for the Embraer E190 aircraft,” commented John Van Maren, FlightSafety’s VP Simulation Products and Services. “FlightSafety also provides the airline with pilot training for Embraer E190 aircraft at our Learning Centers. This demonstrates FlightSafety’s ability to deliver a full range of the highest quality training services and products that meet the specific needs of our customers.”
Russia’s S7 Airlines has ordered a full flight simulator for the Embraer E170 aircraft, which is scheduled to enter service at the carrier’s Moscow Domodedovo airport training facility – the largest in Eastern Europe – late next year.
Vladimir Obyedkov, CEO of S7 Airlines, explained, “We continue to expand the S7 Airlines’ fleet with our plan to add 17 Embraer E170 aircraft."
Finally, SF Airlines has purchased a full flight simulator for the Boeing 757-200F aircraft, which will be installed at the airlines’ Airlines training facility in Shenzhen, China in late 2018.
All of the FFS’ will be FlightSafety FS1000 simulators (pictured). Each of the three will be equipped with the FlightSafety VITAL 1100 Visual System that provides unprecedented fidelity, highly detailed mission specific imagery, and exceptional environmental effects. Training benefits also include a whole-Earth environment and worldwide database that incorporates latest terrain information with geo-specific satellite images.
