Airbus has inaugurated its second A320 full-flight simulator at the Airbus Chile Training Centre (ACTC), located within the Airbus facilities in the Tobalaba Airfield in Santiago.

The 1,700-square-meter facility offers training to Airbus operators in Chile and the Southern Cone and houses full-suite A320 pilot training equipment. Since its inauguration in 2021, the ACTC has trained around 1,000 pilots from Chilean carriers LATAM Airlines, SKY and JetSMART, supporting the operations and ramp-up of A320 Family aircraft in their growing fleet.

Airbus predicts in its Global Services Forecast for Latin America a need for more than 30,000 pilots to be trained over the next two decades in the region. As such doubling training capacities by adding a second simulator located in Chile will support the growing training needs of Airbus’ airline customers.
