ATR-72/600 FFS in Paris receives EASA certification
Toulouse, France - Today the industry has five training centers
(WAPA) - ATR, the world’s turboprop manufacturer, has received certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for its new ATR-72/600 Full Flight Simulator (FFS) based at its Paris Training Center. The brand new FFS was manufactured by TRU Simulation + Training and is conveniently located close to "Charles de Gaulle" airport, which provides connections to any worldwide destination. With ATR operators expected to need around 1,000 new pilots per year, the new simulator will increase ATR’s capacity to offer its customers increased pilot training solutions for the market aircraft.
Today, the industry has five training centers based in Toulouse, Paris, Johannesburg, Singapore and Miami. The latter opened in February 2017 to respond to the increasing presence of ATR airplanes in the Americas. The company is delivering more than 100,000 training hours per year. (Avionews)
