FlightSafety International has been selected by Paramount Aviation Services to supply commercial airline training equipment and support, including a Boeing 737 MAX and an Airbus A320 full-flight simulator (FFS).
The agreement with Paramount, a flight training provider for airline pilots, strengthens FlightSafety’s commitment to provide simulators and support to the commercial aviation market.
Backed by over 70 years of industry-leading training support and experience, FlightSafety has increased its equipment presence to enhance safety for commercial operators and to help address the growing demand for new airline pilots. Paramount is FlightSafety’s inaugural 737 MAX FFS partner.
“We are proud to partner with Paramount,” said Nathan Speiser, FlightSafety executive vice president of sales and marketing. “This agreement demonstrates FlightSafety’s dedication to address the needs of airlines and commercial training providers. It expands our offerings within commercial aviation training, helping ensure airline pilots are not only proficient, but the best possibly prepared.”
“We are helping the airlines answer the challenge of bringing highly trained pilots into the cockpit, and especially to meet the rapidly growing needs for these two aircraft models,” said Stephen Vella, Paramount vice chairman. “These state-of-the-art FlightSafety simulators will further enhance Paramount’s ability to accommodate our customers’ strong demand for our flight training products.”
The 737 MAX Level D FFS is expected to be available for training later this quarter, and will be equipped with Heads-up Displays (HUD); Aircraft Communications, Reporting and Addressing System (ACARS) and Enhanced Vision System (EVS).
The A320 Level D FFS will be delivered to Paramount’s Miami International Airport location and will be ready for training in Q3 of this year. It will be equipped with New Engine Option (NEO) engines, Pratt & Whitney PW1100G, and CFM International LEAP-1A; and both Current Engine Option (CEO) engines, CFM56 and International Aero Engine V2500. It will also provide training for both the Honeywell and Thales Flight Management Systems.
Both FFS will be equipped with FlightSafety’s VITAL visual systems, and backed by the company’s 24/7 service and support.
“FlightSafety has dedicated itself to developing the technology, and delivering simulators and training devices that enhance aviation safety, setting up the airline industry for long-term success,” Speiser added.
