Avion Will Provide 8 Airbus A320 Simulators To India

Avion has secured a deal to provide eight Airbus A320 full flight simulators to upcoming training facility Gen24 Flybiz. Located in Mumbai, the company will add all eight simulators in the next eighteen months in a bid to become a major pilot certification operation. Avion's systems are Level D certified by EASA, the highest rating given to a simulator and indicating the greatest closeness to an actual aircraft.

In a statement today, Avion confirmed that it has signed a deal to supply eight Airbus A320 simulators to a startup training firm in Mumbai. The first two systems have already been shipped and are awaiting approval from regulator DGCA before operating with pilots in India. The remaining six will be delivered over the next eighteen months, by roughly July 2024.

Gen24 Flybiz will open its doors in July, becoming one of the growing providers of full flight simulators to airlines looking to train their pilots. For years, carriers were forced to send cadets abroad to complete their type rating, adding time and expense to the pipeline for students. However, with more simulators now available, carriers will be excited to train more talent locally and induct them into operations.
