Indian pilots can undergo training to fly Airbus A320Neo aircraft in the country as Flight Simulation Technique Centre’s (FSTC’s) full flight simulator has received European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approval.
Indian carriers with A320 neo fleet will no longer have to send their pilots abroad for getting the requisite training, the company said in a statement Monday.
This will be FSTC’s 6th fully functional simulator in the country with the 7th one, which again will be A320 neo simulator, expected to be operational in a month’s time.
EASA is a globally recognized organization and with this approval FSTC will even look to target the International airlines and pilots wanting to undergo their training on such simulator type. FSTC currently operates from 2 locations in the country – Delhi and Hyderabad and have 2 B737 NG, 2 A320, 1 A320neo and 1 Bombardier Dash8 Q400 simulators.
