A320 NEO Full-flight Simulator opened in Hyderabad

Hyderabad: The Flight Simulation Technique Centre (FSTC), a registered standalone Approved Training Organisation (ATO), has received a state-of-the-art full-flight Airbus A320 NEO simulator at its newly-opened facility here on Sunday.

A second Airbus A320 NEO Full-flight Simulator (Level D) would also be delivered by Canada’s CAE Inc later this year. The CAE would deliver a number of complementary lower-level training devices too, including an IPT-Integrated Procedures Trainer, that would be ready for training.

The FSTC has already installed the region’s first Bombardier Q400 simulator and is ready for training to extend simulator services to operators in India and also to international carriers operating the Bombardier’s Dash8 in the region, said Sanjay Mandavia, founder and director of FSTC.

“We are expanding our training infrastructure to address the demand for Airbus A320 NEO training to be provided in India,” said Capt. Mandavia. Co-founder D.S. Basraon said: “With this new delivery from the CAE, the FSTC will be the first independent operator to offer a range of new training solutions and equipment for the rapidly expanding Airbus A320 NEO fleet”.
The FSTC aims to become Asia’s leading ATO for training pilots both locally and abroad. The A320 NEO Simulators being ready for training in the second quarter of 2019 are perfectly timed to address an increasing requirement for training infrastructure to support the growing installed base of A320 Neo aircraft in the region, they said.
