Comair orders second simulator from MPS

Groenekan, The Netherlands - Comair Limited and Multi Pilot Simulations (MPS) have entered into definitive agreements for the delivery of an MPS A320 FTD Fixed Base Simulator to Comair’s Training Centre (CTC). This second FTD comes after the successful installation of an MPS B737-NG FTD in December last year. The MPS A320 FTD will be installed at the Comair Training Centre, based in Johannesburg, South Africa, and will greatly assist Comair in training young pilots.

Comair Manager Commercial Operations, Capt. Glen Warden “Comair Training Centre (CTC) are delighted to have been able to acquire the Airbus A-320 FTD, being our second device from MPS to augment our high quality training services to the airline industry.  Our B737-NG FTD has performed exceptionally well providing our learners with a solid baseline in systems knowledge and handling skills prior to completion of the type endorsement on the full flight simulator. The A-320 FTD, soon to be installed in our new training wing will also offer the same quality training to Airbus operators. The added versatility of being able to conduct MCC/JOC, procedural training, instrument proficiency, LOFT training and command preparation has been a huge cost-effective advantage to our product offering ”

MPS’ President and founder, Dick Verburg: “We are extremely happy to expand our partnership with Comair by delivering a second FTD to their training center. We believe we can contribute to Comair’s training business and impeccable training track record. We are pleased that Comair has recognized the value of the MPS B737-NG simulator and is expanding their offering with an A320 FTD. These devices can enable the highest levels of training whilst maintaining the balance between high quality and cost effectiveness.”
