A few months after announcing its expansion in the Paris area, Simaero, a global provider of full flight simulator operations and pilot training, unveils the first glimpses of its upcoming training center. Ideally situated in Tremblay-en-France, adjacent to Charles de Gaulle airport, and just a ten-minute drive from the existing facility, this second center’s construction is already underway. It is set to welcome its inaugural Airbus A350 full-flight simulator within months, with operations scheduled to commence in January 2025. 


In a period of unprecedented recovery and growth in the aviation sector, the demand for trained commercial pilots has never been more critical. Simaero, with its recognized expertise and stateof-the-art facilities, positions itself as a key player in adapting the training offer, providing highquality training programs based on safety, competence, and confidence within the global aviation industry. 

Prime Location Near CDG Airport, Public Transportation, and Lodging Area

Understanding airlines’ constraints and the necessity for seamless integration of pilot training within their demanding schedules, the location choice has been a pivotal focus in Simaero’s expansion of training capacity in Paris. The new facility is strategically positioned adjacent to the airport area to minimize travel time from arrival gates. 


Moreover, to ensure pilots have a comfortable and convenient stay, the center is ideally situated in close proximity to partner hotels, a shopping mall, and the Paris public transport system, facilitating easy access to downtown Paris during leisure time.


Eco-conscious Brand-New Facility for Enhanced Training Experience
Spanning over 5,000 square meters, the new facility will be fully equipped with eight full-flight simulator bays, briefing and debriefing rooms, spacious classrooms, dedicated lockers, and a customer lounge area. 
Overseeing this project from inception, Simaero has partnered with BARJANE, a property group deeply committed to innovative and sustainable real estate ventures. Together, they meticulously designed every facility detail, crafting global architecture and interior design concepts to enhance the on-site training experience while minimizing its environmental impact. This project will adhere to ISO 14 001 standards, and the building will pursue BREEAM certification., the world’s leading science-based suite of validation and certification systems for a sustainable built environment.


By creating a new training facility from the ground up, we can guarantee every aspect of our pilot training solutions. This significant investment showcases our unwavering commitment to delivering the best training experience to our customers,” states Nicolas Mouté, CEO of Simaero.

Expanding Training Opportunities with New Aircraft Types in the Fleet, and Housing and Maintenance Options

The installation of the first Airbus A350 full-flight simulator is slated for completion by year-end, ensuring certification and operational readiness by January 2025. Exploring the utilization of the remaining bays, Simaero is considering incorporating A320 neo/ceo and B787 full-flight simulators. Additionally, the company is extending housing and maintenance packages to airlines interested in owning their full-flight simulator and looking for a high-quality partner able to ensure its operations and housing in an ideal location in Paris CDG.
