Back in 2002, two French entrepreneurs Eric Renault and Jean Marc Petit established the SIMAERO in Dinard, in a region of Britany in France, by installing two Fokker full flight simulators (FFS). They started with only 1 employee in a 16 square meters office.

Today in 2022, SIMAERO is a global provider of flight simulation, pilot training, and engineering services, with training centers in France, South Africa and China. The group operates 18 FFSs provides services to over 200 civil and military clients from more than 80 countries.

For this occasion, the entire SIMAERO Group came together to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary. The offices of Paris, Johannesburg, Dinard, and Shanghai, all joined in via videoconference to celebrate together.

“Our people are our greatest asset”, said SIMAERO founder and current Chairman Eric RENAULT. “It’s because of devoted employees, their efforts, their passion, and their loyalty that we are here today after the largest aviation crisis, strong as never before and seeing a very bright future for our company”.

SIMAERO is proud to have very loyal employees, many of them have spent in the company as long as 10 years. The company was happy to recognize their contribution on that day through a special award.

SIMAERO will also pay a special attention to its long supporting customers, which continue to use SIMAERO services on a regular basis. From South America to Australia, many airlines and flight schools are sending pilots to SIMAERO facilities for training. Nice surprises and gifts are prepared for clients of SIMAERO as a sign of appreciation for this long-lasting cooperation.

“Our clients are a world for us”, says Lina Rutkauskiene, Commercial Director of SIMAERO. “Our customers are assured to be provided not only with the highest quality training services but also, what our customers truly appreciate, always with our flexibility and win-win business approach”.
