FlightSafety International and HAITE Aviation Safety and Training Pte. Ltd. have signed an agreement for the purchase of a full flight simulator for the Airbus A320. The simulator will replicate both the CEO and NEO versions of the A320 aircraft. The FlightSafety FS1000 simulator will be qualified to Level D and enter service at the Aviation Safety and Training Center in Singapore in January 2019.
“We are pleased that the HAITE Aviation Safety and Training Center in Singapore will acquire an Airbus A320 full flight simulator from FlightSafety. This agreement demonstrates our proven ability to consistently provide the highest quality training equipment and the exceptional value our Customers expect and deserve,” said Ray Johns, Executive Vice President.

The simulators installed at the Aviation Safety and Training Center will feature FlightSafety’s advanced CrewView™ glass mirror display. CrewView delivers unprecedented simulation training fidelity.
