Both devices will be delivered in July 2017 to Qingdao Airline’s Training Centre in Longkou, China (Shandong Province).

Qingdao Airlines will adopt the Train@Home model that is successfully being used by airlines worldwide, and is providing substantial savings on the cost of their pilot training operations. This training model also increases the availability of an airline’s pilots to fly.

“We’re delighted that Qingdao Airlines has placed its trust in our organization and sees the value we deliver with the suite of our FFS X simulator, training tools and related support services,” explained George Karam, Vice President and General Manager of TRU’s Air Transport Simulation division. “We are continuously enhancing our customer support presence in China to service our expanding footprint in the country.”

TRU operates a dedicated customer support center in Chengdu for its Chinese customers.

Qingdao Airlines is a fast-growing recently established airline and currently has 9 new Airbus A320 aircraft in its fleet with plans to expand its fleet to 50 aircraft by 2020 and 100 aircraft by 2025.
