European flight simulation company Euramec have expanded into Africa with the delivery of a Dornier 228 flight training device to Kenyan air charter company Kasas.
Kasas will use the FTD to conduct cockpit and ground crew training. KASAS operate 13 Dornier Do228 aircraft. They also provide four Dornier 228 for third-party operators.
Formed three years ago in Nairobi, Kasas is a flying partner for NGOs such as the International Red Cross, Medecins sans Frontieres, Save the Children – UK, GOAL Ireland and the UN World Food Program, operating in many Central and East African hotspots.
Belgium-based Euramec will provide a certifiable FTD for training new and existing Kasas cockpit and ground crews. The Do-228 FTD will be mounted on a compact full-motion platform for full reality integration. Training is to commence in early 2020.
Belgium-based Motion will provide the motion platform for the simulators. With this project, Euramec is adding full-motion simulation to its existing catalogue of flight training.
The commercial partnership with Motion will further enhance the value of selected Euramec simulators.
Euramec's move into the African market follows expansion in Asia, with the opening of a new sales office in China.
