Airbus has acquired the Strategic Simulation
Solutions flight training center in Aurora, Colorado, a Denver
Currently, the Aurora training center has two
A320 Family, FAA Level D full flight simulators – the
highest-level flight simulators – for training of Frontier
Airlines pilots on the airline’s all-Airbus fleet.
Airbus plans to at least double capacity
at the facility in the next few years. Additional
simulators will be added at the Aurora facility in 2018 to address
anticipated increased demand for training.
innovative ACT Suite – a fully comprehensive, high-fidelity course
for maintenance training can also be set up within a week’s notice
and will be offered in line with demand.
“This is another major step forward in our
ambition to grow services around the world,” said Laurent
Martinez, Head of Services by Airbus. “Our Global Services
Forecast predicts a need for 122,000 new pilots in the Americas by
2035, representing 23% of the world’s demand. We want our Airbus
flight training facilities to be easily accessible to our
customers regardless of their location, hence this latest move.”
Prior to this acquisition, Airbus provided
training to the North American region primarily from its Miami,
Florida-based training center.
Over the past two years Airbus
has expanded its training capacity for customers in the Americas
with the addition of training centers in Mexico City, Mexico and
in Campinas, Brazil. At a worldwide level, Airbus expanded its
training network more than threefold in only three years; growing
from five locations in 2015 to seventeen locations today.
“We will hold steady in our ambition to provide
the most state-of-the-art, top-quality training to our customers,
and to continue expanding our global training capacity at its
current pace,” Martinez added.
