EgyptAir ready to restart with new simulators

Posted 12 October 2020 · Add Comment

EgyptAir Training Academy is poised to restart training and has been busy with brand new full-flight simulators.

The Cairo-based academy worked with L3Harris to install a new Reality Seven full-flight simulator for the new Airbus A320neo, and that’s now up and running.

Soon to arrive, once the pandemic restrictions are lifted, is one of the world’s first full-flight simulators for the Airbus A220-300, that’s been especially designed and manufactured by FlightSafety International.

“The simulator has completed production and is awaiting customer testing once pandemic travel restrictions ease,” said FlightSafety’s Steve Phillips.

“Following testing, it will be installed at the EgyptAir Training Academy headquarters at Cairo International Airport. We expect that training will begin in the fourth quarter of 2020.”

This is the first simulator FlightSafety has built for the Airbus A220-300. It’s based on the company’s FS1000 simulators, which are designed to enhance performance and reliability, and lower life-cycle costs compared to previous-generation devices.

They include FlightSafety’s electric control loading and cueing technology, and a new multi-function instructor operating station that features an intuitive interface, scalable graphics, and large multi-touch displays.

“We are continuously looking to evolve, and ultimately enhance, our training academy by incorporating new technologies into our full range of training devices,” said Captain Ahmed Adel, chairman and CEO of EgyptAir Holding Company.
