One more Full Flight Simulator (FFS) upgraded with the recent Airbus Std. 2.0, Airbus A320ceo/neo, has passed final acceptance tests and Initial Evaluation and is now declared Ready For Training (RFT) at BAA Training Spain in Barcelona. This Level-D full-scope flight compartment replica, which is equipped with two ceo and two neo engine types, was manufactured by L3Harris Technologies.
The Airbus A320ceo/neo device complements the existing Airbus A320ceo, Boeing 737 MAX FFSs and A320 FTD Level 2 simulator at the BAA Training’s Spanish facility. It will support training for a variety of customers, including commercial airlines and individual self-sponsored pilots and keep them competitive in the market.
Aurimas Urbonas, Managing Director at BAA Training Spain, says: “With Airbus A320ceo/neo FFS at our training centre, we are all set to meet the future demand of the aviation sector, which is ramping up activity.”
The simulator is equipped with Rsi’s latest version Image Generator (XT5), NORXE P1 LED visual projectors 200-by-45 Field-of-View and a Synergistic Six Degree of Freedom eM2k Electro-Hydraulic Motion System. Other features of this simulator include upset recovery (UPRT) capabilities, Full stall training and icing conditions, Cat C airfields simulation, smoke system, Required Navigation Performance (RNP) [LNAV, LNAV/VNAV, AR] APCH.
BAA Training Spain will receive some more equipment this year – a Boeing 737 MAX FTD. The Airbus A320 FTD that became Ready For Training a couple of months ago guarantees more attractive training prices for customers when it replaces the FFS to complete Multi-Crew Cooperation (MCC), Jet Orientation Course (JOC) and other training.
