Paramount Aviation Services will add an MD88 full-flight simulator to its training facility in Miami, Florida. The device was previously installed in Atlanta, Georgia, and managed by Delta Professional Services, who will continue to provide wet training on the FFS and flight training devices - and will be Paramount’s first official MD88 customer.
“Whether the flight training is for passenger-configured aircraft or for the latest passenger-to-freighter conversion variant, the MD88 simulator’s new home in Paramount’s Miami Campus will be vital support for the world’s MD88 fleet,” said Vincent La Forgia, President of Paramount.
There are currently 30 operators of 150 MD80-variant aircraft worldwide; the primary MD88 operator is cargo operator USA Jet Airlines with 15.
Paramount’s Miami International Airport flight training campus houses B737CL, B737NG, B757, MD88, and Falcon 20 FFSs in a 12-bay simulator facility.
