FlightSafety International has been selected by Breeze Airways to provide Airbus A220 and Embraer E190 Full Flight Simulators (FFS) and Flight Training Devices (FTD).
As part of a long-term agreement, FlightSafety will also maintain the operation of the devices and other crew training equipment for Breeze. FlightSafety is increasing its focus on training and equipment for the Commercial Airline Training market. The company is a leading provider of Airbus A220 training technology and has delivered nearly 40 E-jet Full Flight Simulators.
Breeze Airways is the new airline founded by veteran industry entrepreneur David Neeleman that started flight operations in 2021. The airline is currently flying to 16 underserved destinations in the U.S. and is intent on blending technology with kindness to provide a ‘Seriously Nice’ customer experience.
The initial simulators, engineered and manufactured by FlightSafety in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, will be delivered to Breeze Training Academy in 2022. The simulators will incorporate industry-leading technologies for highest fidelity and reliability, and the A220 FFS and FTD will utilize Airbus’ Standard 1.0 software.
“We are excited and proud to partner with Breeze,” said FlightSafety President and CEO Brad Thress. “We’re committed to providing the best training and technology support to the world’s commercial airlines, and believe that our partnership with Breeze solidifies that.”
“Breeze is diligent in selecting partners for long-term success, and FlightSafety’s vision and customer service made this an easy decision,” said David Neeleman, Breeze Airways’ chairman and CEO.
FlightSafety says it has improved synergies across the company, optimizing its manufacturing footprint and streamlining its build process. Customers are recognizing the benefits from FlightSafety’s continued focus on advancing technology, improving supply chain partnerships, and providing comprehensive support.
