FlightSafety International and ExpressJet Airlines have signed an extension to their existing training services agreement. It includes the addition of full flight simulators and other advanced training devices and services.
Subodh Karnik, ExpressJet chairman and CEO said, “The new simulator and training devices provided by FlightSafety will support maximum training efficiency and throughput as ExpressJet grows with new Embraer E175s and hires more than 600 pilots in 2019.”
FlightSafety has recently delivered an Embraer E-170 simulator to the ExpressJet facility at Houston Intercontinental Airport and has installed an E Jet cabin trainer. Graphical flight deck simulators for the Embraer E-170 and ERJ 145 aircraft will be coming in the near future. FlightSafety will also provide maintenance services for the training devices installed at the ExpressJet facility.
