Cardiff Aviation will be responsible for the breakdown, shipping, installation, commissioning and re-qualification of the simulator in Karachi, Pakistan.

"This is just one example of how far and wide the involvement of Cardiff Aviation is spreading in the international aviation technical support and maintenance market," said Mario Fulgoni, joint CEO of Cardiff Aviation.

As well as maintenance of airliners and other large aircraft for several major and independent airlines, Cardiff Aviation has facilities to complete the full range of ancillary aircraft maintenance and training activities and has the expertise and approvals to certify aircraft from many jurisdictions, including the USA.
