ST Aerospace and Sim-Industries Advance Multi-Crew Pilot Training


The latest training technology is slated for Singapore’s new multi-crew pilot licence program.

On July 10 at the Farnborough Air Show, PEH Teng Keng (pictured left), president of ST Aerospace Academy, and Frank Uit den Bogaard, CEO of Sim-Industries, signed a partnership to provide an Airbus A320 full flight simulator for the academy.

The simulator will be housed in ST Aerospace Academy’s simulator training center at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore. Expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2013, the simulator center is designed to house six full flight simulators and one full size fixed base simulator, as well as computer-based training rooms for air transport pilot licensing and entry level ground training.

The suite of training equipment and devices is custom designed for the recently legislated Singapore multi-crew license program.

Sim-Industries, a Lockheed Martin company, develops and produces a full line of aircraft training technologies to support the needs of airlines, aircraft manufacturers and independent training centres.
