The FSTD is equipped with both Classic CFM-ceo and the new CFM-neo LEAP engine options by the world-renowned Airbus A320 engine provider and global leading supplier of jet engines for commercial airplanes, CFM International. The simulator has an advanced RSI visual system that delivers sharp images with vivid colours supported by 1920 x 1200 high-definition resolution of high-detail airports including:

           Sharjah International Airport

           Dubai International Airport

           Cairo International Airport

           Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport

           Amsterdam Airport Schipol

           Singapore Changi Airport

           Heathrow Airport

           Gatwick Airport

 

The Airbus A320 FSTD will allow Alpha Aviation to provide additional capacity for its Type-Rating and MPL training for pilots. MPS previously installed an A320 FSTD at Alpha Aviation Group in Clarke, Philippines.

 

AAA’s general manager, Captain Nadhem AlHamad: “We are very happy to partner with MPS to acquire a sophisticated device with the latest Airbus A320 2.0 simulator standard which is currently the highest and most-advanced in the market. Alpha Aviation will be utilising the new simulator for the Basic Phase of the MPL training programme and extending its services to pilots who can benefit from refresher trainings during such unprecedented times.”
