As reported on by Aviation News Philippines, The new Alpha Aviation Airbus A330/340 Full Flight Simulator will be based in Clark, Philippines. The newest investment was made to support the wide body segment, lower the cost of training of domestic and regional airlines. This type of simulator will be the first wide body simulator in the Philippines and the latest simulator with Airbus A340 functionality built globally. It will simulate all the functions of a real Airbus A330 aircraft and has the flexibility to change to Airbus A340 layout when required by an airline.
The Airbus A330/340 Full Flight simulator will serve as an invaluable training tool for Alpha Aviation Group Philippines’ domestic and foreign cadets and airline partners.
Alpha Aviation Group is well positioned to assist the regional airlines in their aggressive expansion plans. The latest investment is a commitment from AAG to continue supporting the regional airline industry. The announcement was made at the launch of another simulator investment by Alpha Aviation Group Philippines, another multi-million-dollar Airbus A320 Fixed Base Simulator.
Alpha Aviation Group’s Regional Director Cristopher Magdangal said: “The acquisition of a new Airbus A330 Full Flight Simulator signifies AAG’s promise to extend its airline services offering to include the wide body segment. The A340 functionality will make this device unique in the region in the next decade, enhances the position of the Philippines becoming a global aviation training hub and positions AAG as a training centre of excellence.”
