AeroStar Training Services has announced the official launch of an on-location A320 simulator, recently installed in their new 18,000, soon-to-be 30,000 square foot hangar facility at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport. The simulator is being used by the school's pilot trainees working on an A320 type rating or ATP certificate, as well as by airlines and organizations who wish to dry lease simulator hours.
This is phase one of a major expansion effort for the company, which includes a $1.5 million building addition, featuring a new state-of-the-art aircraft maintenance facility, Spectrum Aero. It also introduces the first of several new simulators that have been acquired by AeroStar. Phases two and three will roll out later this year and cost approximately $2-3 million to complete.
