Airbus and Lion Group have signed a Training Centre Services Agreement to develop flight training programmes for Lion Group carriers in accordance with Airbus and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) standards.

Under the terms of the agreement, Airbus will be providing syllabi, training documentation, tools and the courseware necessary for the training courses for Airbus aircraft conducted at Lion Groups Angkasa Aviation Academy.

Airbus has also agreed to have personnel stationed at Angkasa Aviation Academys simulator training centre in Jakarta. The centre already has simulators for existing aircraft types operated by Lion Group, with 4 A320 simulators on order - the first of which will be delivered end of March.

The decision to partner with Airbus for provision of flight training services, demonstrates that Lion Group and Angkasa Aviation Academy are investing heavily in training and are continuing to bring to Indonesia internationally recognized training courses, said Rusdi Kirana, President Director of Lion Group, Angkasa Aviation Academys parent company. We believe that having these flight training courses in Indonesia demonstrates Airbuss commitment to this region.

This new cooperation with Airbus on flight training will enhance Indonesias training capabilities and will complement our current activities. It will offer the newest flight simulator technology in conjunction with the industrys most experienced instructors, Rusdi added.

Lion Group placed its first order with Airbus in March 2013 when it ordered 234 A320 Family aircraft one of the largest single orders Airbus has ever received. The group is due to receive its first aircraft in July this year for operation by its full service unit Batik Air.
