Oman Air opens its training centre with new sims from TRU

Posted 5 November 2016 · Add Comment

Oman Air has opened its new training centre in Muscat following the delivery and qualification of two new full flight simulators from Textron subsidiary, TRU Simulation + Training

.
The two full flight simulators (FFS) are for the B737 and A330 aircraft operated by Oman Air along with a flight training device and virtual cockpit classroom for the B737NG aircraft.
The suite of training products provided for the B737NG share the same software, thus allowing the same high-level fidelity across the product suite. TRU will also be providing a full turn-key maintenance service for the devices.
The new flight training centre is located adjacent to the company’s headquarters in Muscat. TRU is also responsible for the full operation of the centre, including operation and maintenance of the newly-delivered FFS.
“We are honored to work hand-in-hand with Oman Air to support the setup and operation of the flight training center in Muscat,” said George Karam, VP and general manager of TRU’s air transport simulation division. “Oman Air joins a number of other fast growing airlines around the globe that have opted to train their pilots and aircrews at home and TRU is able to supply customised solutions to meet all such customers’ training needs.”
Captain Ali Hassan Sulaiman, executive vice president & chief operations officer, Oman Air, said: “The Oman Air Flight Training Centre will enable Oman Air to continue operating to the highest safety standards and with absolute professionalism. Furthermore, Oman Air’s investment in this training facility – the first of its kind in Oman - will add an important milestone in the airline’s contribution towards the development of the Sultanate.”
