Avenger Flight Group, LLC has launched Poland’s first commercial aviation training center in a joint venture with Enter Air, the largest charter carrier in Poland. The newly constructed space in Warsaw will feature a Boeing 737NG certified to level D by the Civil Aviation Authority of Poland (CAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
The opening of the Warsaw Training Center marks the third European training center Avenger Flight Group has unveiled in 2020, after Madrid and Rome, to offer customizable training needs to European airlines. The inauguration was attended by officials from the Polish CAA, Enter Air board members and AFG personnel. The custom-built training center has capacity for six full-flight simulators and over 10,000 square feet of modern classroom, office and briefing rooms. The facility is in the 7R City Flex Warsaw Airport I complex, near Chopin Airport.

“A year ago, Pedro Sors, the founder of AFG, called me and asked if we were interested in cooperation,” says Marcin Kubrak, member of the board of Enter Air. "We decided to work together on a new project. Within a few months, a simulator was sent to Warsaw to start training our pilots on the Boeing 737. CAE, the world’s largest manufacturer of full-flight simulator equipment, supplied the Boeing 737 7000XR for training. Due to the pandemic, its launch has been postponed by several months."
Enter Air intends to utilize 60 percent of the training capacity for their pilots, while the remainder of the available capacity will be offered to airlines in central and eastern Europe.
