SIMAERO successfully completed the relocation of a Boeing 757/767 Full Flight Simulator from Shanghai to the HENAN Civil Aviation Development & Investment Aviation Training Center (HNCA) in Zhengzhou, despite the various local restrictions and challenges of the Covid pandemic.
The Boeing B757/767 Full Flight Simulator is the first simulator of wide-body type aircraft in central China, and the fourth Full Flight Simulator operated by the HNCA training center.
“We are very proud of this achievement reached by our highly talented team of engineers in such a difficult period in China. I must also underline the awesome support of HNCA staff members who contributed to the success of this operation.” commented Nicolas Mouté, CEO of SIMAERO.
The simulator, installed by SIMAERO, passed successfully the CAAC’s Level D certification. The certification allows initial and recurrent pilot training as well as proficiency checks.
The introduction of this B757/767 simulator is very important for the Chinese aviation market. The lack of wide-body aircraft flight training capabilities is now reduced, especially in the region of central China. Local domestic operators, as well as foreign operators, will be able to use the high-quality flight training services for their pilots’ initial qualification and recurrent training, with a positive impact on the safety of aircraft operations in China.
Headquartered in Paris, France, SIMAERO’s Approved Training Organisation for pilots is certified by EASA as well as by many other civil aviation authorities including South Africa, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Nepal, Malaysia, and Brazil. The Full Flight Simulators and training solutions cover a comprehensive range of aircraft types including Airbus A320, A330, A340, A350; Boeing 737, B757, B767, B777, B787, ATR 42/72-500/600, ERJ 145, Beech 1900, Dash 8, MD80/82, Fokker 100.
