Ethiopian Airlines Orders Diesel C172 Simulator from Frasca

Posted on Tuesday 9th May 2017 | Airline

Frasca International received an order from The Ethiopian Airlines Flight Training Academy for a FRASCA 172 Flight Navigation Procedures Trainer (FNPT II). The 172 FNPT II will be configured as a diesel model and will include Frasca's TruVision™ Global visual system with a 210 x 57 cyclindrical visual display system. This will be the first Frasca flight simulator installed in Ethiopia.

The device will be installed by Africair, based in Miami, Florida. Africair has supported Ethiopian Airlines Aviation Academy since 1977 and has also been involved with Frasca simulator projects in other parts of Africa, according to Travis Tinsey, Regional Sales Manager, Africair Inc.

Driven by the increasing demand for its basic and recurrent training programs from domestic and international customers, the Ethiopian Aviation Academy is heavily investing to equip itself with modern training aircraft, computer based training, simulators, and other modern facilities. The Frasca device will be an integral part of the Academy’s transformation.
