Brisbane based flight simulator manufacturer SimJET Training Systems has entered into a strategic partnership with Archerfield based Airline Academy of Australia (AAA) to enhance significantly AAA’s capabilities to train pilots up to airline standard.
Under the agreement, SimJET will provide AAA students access to a Boeing 737-800 simulator and Airbus A320 procedural training device, making it the first flying training academy in Australia to offer the sophisticated training devices. The two companies will also jointly attend the Asia Pacific Aviation Training Symposium (APATS) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, next month, displaying SimJET’s portable Airbus A320 procedural trainer as part of a broader presentation of AAA’s offerings.
“The SimJET devices to which we now have access enable us to offer significantly more to our customers, from procedural activities on the latest model Boeing or Airbus aircraft to multi crew coordination training,” said AAA CEO Stewart Cameron.
“We are also exploring the possibility of developing other simulators, including glass cockpit versions of the entry level Cessna 172 which students use at the very start of their flying training,” he added. “No other independent flight academy can offer this.”
