Greece's main FTO orders ELITE SIMULATOR

The first FNPT II MCC simulator to be sold in Athens Greece by Elite Simulation Solutions will go to the JETSTREAM Aviation Academy, the largest Flight Training Organisation in that country and one of the largest in South East Europe.

The Elite Evolution S923 FNPT II MCC will be configured to represent the Beech King Air B200 twin turboprop but can quickly be converted to represent the Piper Seneca III twin piston aircraft or the single engine Cessna C172RG.

It is scheduled for installation at JETSTREAM's center in Athens International Airport, December 2009 and will be operational with JAA/EASA qualifications 15 January 2010.

A special feature of the system will be ultra high visual display of Athens International Airport. Custom built, working with 60cm aerial photography, this imagery will include all buildings at the airport and even surrounding trees.

Despite its clever detailing and accuracy, Elite has been able to supply this add-on at a competitive price – which clearly appealed to JETSTREAM , which was set up by a group of airline commanders and aviation managers looking to offer new levels of professional training for pilots wanting recreational flying right up to those wanting to fly for airlines.

JETSTREAM  offers ATPL integrated-CPL modular courses and Type Ratings across the Airbus range,  A320/A330/A340/A310, the Boeing 737 CL/NG, the ATR 42/72, the Embraer 145, the larger Cessna ranges and the Piper Cheyenne PA 31/42.

JETSTREAM’s Flight Department Training Director, Dimitris Perdikaris, said: “After months of thorough market research and assessment of the technical specifications of flight simulator devices, the management of our company reached the decision to go for the Elite S923 FNPT II MCC, which fulfills all of our requirements.

“It is a cost effective and versatile training device that offers high quality and reliability, with state-of- the-art aviation equipment able to provide excellent services. Also Elite’s professionalism, support and their very quick response to our inquiry was marked by the precision for which the Swiss are reknowned.”

Elite’s Sales Director, René Huddlestone, said: “We are very pleased to secure our first FNPTII MCC sale in Athens Greece, particularly to such a professional FTO as JETSTREAM . We are convinced that the S923 will add greatly to their training capabilities and that their students will make rapid, positive progress through using the device.”
