CAAC buys full flight simulator


The Civil Aviation Administration of China, China Aviation Supplies Import & Export Group Corp., and Thales Group Training and Simulation Co. signed a contract in Beijing on May 30 for the purchase of an A320 full flight simulator. The contract consists of an A320 level D full flight simulator and an A320 flight maintenance trainer. CAAC Vice Minister Li Jian, CASGC General Manager Li Hai, General Manager Zhu Haiping of China Aviation Supplies Import & Export Co. and Jean-Paul Perrier, executive vice president of the Thales Group, attended the signing ceremony. Li said the simulator will enhance civil aviation flight safety supervision management and meet the growing need of flight supervisor training. It will also help airlines improve their training quality and ensure flight safety. This is the first time that the CAAC will purchase its own full flight simulator, which will be used to train supervisors. These personnel are responsible for inspecting domestic A320 full flight simulators and check if they reach pilot training standards. The set of the A320 FFS and trainer will be installed at Hua-Ou Aviation Training and Support Center, which will be responsible for the daily operation and maintenance of A320 FFS. Hua-Ou currently has an A320 and A340 FFS, manufactured by Thales.
