EGYPTAIR has selected FlightSafety International to design and manufacture a full flight simulator for the Airbus A220-300 aircraft. The simulator will be installed at the EGYPTAIR Training Academy headquarters located at Cairo International Airport.

"We are continuously looking to evolve and ultimately enhance our Training Academy by incorporating new technologies into our full range of training devices,” said Capt. Ahmed Adel, chairman & CEO of EGYPTAIR Holding Company. “This step is in line with the EGYPTAIR fleet modernization strategy, which necessities an upgrade of EGYPTAIR Training Academy simulation devices by installing new types of simulators that could serve well with EGYPTAIR’s new fleet.”

This is the first simulator FlightSafety has built for the Airbus A220-300. The advanced technology systems incorporated into the simulator are designed to enhance performance and reliability and lower life-cycle costs compared to previous-generation devices. They include FlightSafety’s 60-inch electric control loading and cueing technology, and a new multi-function Instructor Operating Station that features an intuitive interface, scalable graphics, and large multi-touch displays.
