New Delhi: India’s Flight Simulation Technique Centre (FSTC) has become the first Approved Training Organisation (ATO) in the region to induct a Level-D Full Flight ATR72-600 simulator, with Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) giving certification to its brand new ATR 72-600 simulator.

The Full Flight Simulator has an electric-pneumatic motion system allowing for silent operation and reduced power consumption, and a front projection collimated 200-degree x 40-degree Field of View visual display system, FSTC said in a statement today.

The simulator has been installed at FSTC’s newly-built Hyderabad facility and is ready for training effective immediately. IndiGo has become the first official customer and have already started using the new device to train their ATR 72-600 pilots.

“With the addition of this simulator, we are one step closer to our vision to be Asia’s leading ATO with a positive outlook on the market for training pilots both locally here in India as well as in the region,” FSTC Founder and Chief Executive Officer Capt. Sanjay Mandavia said.

NOTE: FSTC is India’s first registered standalone Approved Training Organization (ATO). It is the largest ATO in the region with the most number of full flight simulators catering to all the airlines in India that fly various fleet types. FSTC is also accredited by EASA, Airbus, and Boeing Co. FSTC’s course curriculum conforms to the best in class international standards. Around 1,100 pilots have already been trained by FSTC and are inducted by all the major airlines like Indigo, Vistara, Jet Airways, SpiceJet, GoAir and Air India. FSTC currently provides full flight simulators to the majority of airlines in India and conducts type rating programme on B737 NG, A320, Q400 and ATR aircraft for airlines and self-sponsored individuals.
