SERVING THE DYNAMIC ASIA-PACIFIC REGION
Located at Singapore’s Seletar Aerospace Park, the Airbus Asia Training Centre offers pilot type-rating and recurrent training courses for all in-production Airbus jetliner variants. It will have the capacity to offer courses for more than 10,000 trainees annually, becoming Airbus’ largest flight crew training facility when fully operational in 2019.
This joint-venture, owned 55 per cent by Airbus and 45 per cent by Singapore Airlines, is housed in a 9,250-square metre facility and developed with a $100 million (U.S.) investment in building and simulators. Its initial instructor base is drawn from the resources of Airbus and Singapore Airlines, with the facility’s employees growing to 50 instructors and 20 support staff by 2019.
At full capability, the centre will operate eight full-flight simulators for the A350 XWB, A380, A330 and A320. Two more simulator bays are available for potential future development.
