Following Alpha Aviation Academy UAE’s awarding of a contract to MPS in March 2020 for the supply of its first simulator in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), the MPS team has now installed the A320 Flight Simulation Training Device (FSTD - Fixed Base) at the Academy’s training centre, located near to Sharjah International Airport in the United Arab Emirates. The FSTD is equipped with both Classic CFM-ceo and the new CFM-neo LEAP engine options by Airbus A320 engine provider, CFM International.

The simulator has an advanced RSI visual system that delivers 1920x1200 high-definition resolution of airports including Sharjah International Airport, Dubai International Airport, Cairo International Airport, Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport, Amsterdam Airport Schipol, Singapore Changi Airport, Heathrow and Gatwick Airports.

The new device will allow Alpha Aviation to provide additional capacity for its Type-Rating and MPL training for pilots. MPS previously installed an A320 FSTD at Alpha Aviation Group in Clarke, Philippines.
