Pan Am Flight Academy has acquired a new Level D B737 MAX-8 simulator to enhance its commercial pilot training programs. The simulator is expected to be ready for training by July 2023, enabling Pan Am to incorporate a new aircraft sim to its extended offering.
The new simulator features the latest technology for a realistic and immersive training experience. It will be fully equipped with the latest L3 Harris RealitySeven technology. The new B737 MAX-8 sim will have all the latest features including the Runway Awareness and Advisory System (RAAS), TCAS II-7.1, weather radar, electric control loading and motion system and RSi EPIC visual system.
"This new simulator is a significant investment in our training programs and will provide our students with the highest quality training experience," said Jeff Portanova, President of Pan Am Flight Academy.
The B737 MAX-8 is one of the most popular commercial aircraft in the world, and with the new simulator, Pan Am Flight Academy will be able to offer further training options to pilots from airlines and other aviation organizations worldwide.
