A320 family Full Flight Simulator available at the SuperJet International’s Training Center in Venice
The A320 FFS is an EASA (JAR-FSTD A) fully compliant Synthetic training device. The FFS has been transferred from Alitalia Training Center in Rome to the SuperJet International Training Center in Tessera (Venice), close to the International Marco Polo airport.
The installation will last around 30 days. In February 2012 the simulator will be submitted to the approval of the Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC) and training courses will start accordingly.
With this acquisition, SuperJet International’s facility in Venice becomes a Flight Training Organization (FTO) able to supply a Type-rating course on A320 family fully integrated with Multi Crew Cooperation (MCC) through the utilization of a Frasca 242J MCC as well, thus permitting this type-rating course to a larger series of young or not completely expert pilots.
The courses will be managed by a selected and highly experienced team of SuperJet International’s professionals with airline’s operations background.
“This is a great milestone for SuperJet International and an outstanding opportunity to prove the reliability of our training services – states Carlo Logli, Chief Executive Officer – In terms of technologies, the Airbus A320 family has similar characteristics to the SSJ100 aircraft. So, this parallel activity will allow us to improve our expertise in training services.
Moreover, by the third quarter of 2012, a new and advanced Full Flight Simulator, produced by Thales, will be installed in Venice at the SJI training center. This will grant to enlarge the SJI training offer on the SSJ100 aircraft, in addition to the FFS already operational in Zhukovsky, Moscow. I am extremely satisfied with this achievement because SuperJet International is going to become a highly technologically Training Center offering multi-aircraft training services”.
