Our A320 FTD is fully certified JAR FSTD - A Level 1 by the French DGAC. It allows ATCT customers to greatly increase the quality of their Type Rating while reducing the need for a full flight simulator.
FTD’s have already established themselves as inevitable training tools for Airbus Industry training centers.
In the case of Type Rating upgrades, FTD allows a gain of 30% on training time spent on a simulator.
Computer Based Training (CBT) is also an integral part of the course. Every day, CBT sessions are combined with hands-on exercises on Airbus’s new state-of-the-art Flight Training Device (FTD).
Thanks to the FTD, trainees can become familiar with cockpit operations starting on the fifth day of training and benefit from an interactive environment for learning aircraft procedures. Each crew has its own dedicated instructor.
FTD also allows the application of the newly developed concept APT2, ( Airbus Pilot Transition Training 2 ).
