Airbus Mexico training center has ordered two Lockheed Martin's A320 full flight simulators for their operations in Mexico City and Monterrey.

The simulators will be delivered in late 2015 and early 2016, Lockheed Martin announced Monday.

The frame contract was signed between Lockheed Martin Commercial Flight Training (LMFT) and Airbus to expedite procurement of flight simulation devices for airbus training centres and their customers.

Further, the contract emphasizes the shared intent to partner on future training programs, and combines Airbus' and LMCFT expertise in the flight simulation industry.

"With this frame contract in place, we look forward to a long and productive partnership with Airbus in support of flight training needs around the world," said Sandy Samuel, vice president and general manager of LMCFT.

"Our team is focused on delivering quality simulation devices with the fidelity and reliability needed to maximize pilot throughput in Airbus' Mexico City and Monterrey training centers." Samuel added.

LMCFT offers a complete suite of commercial aviation training products and services including Airbus A320 and A330/340 and Boeing 737, 767, 777 and 787 full flight simulators.

The company also provides training services through its international commercial aviation training centers based in São Paulo, Brazil, and Incheon, Korea.
