The airline is the first to incorporate this technological tool in Mexico and Latin America.
The new platform will reduce training time and streamline the availability and productivity of their crews.
Aeromexico, Mexico’s global airline, in partnership with Lockheed Martin Commercial Flight Training (LMCFT), presented its new Boeing 787 flight simulator today at the Aeromexico Training facility. This device will allow Aeromexico’s pilots to train under highly realistic operating conditions.
Andres Conesa, CEO of Aeromexico, stated, “We are very proud to be the first airline in Mexico and Latin America that implements the Boeing 787 flight simulator, considered one of the most advanced training tools into the market. With the addition of this simulator, more than 200 pilots flying our nine Boeing 787s, and a total of 19 Boeing 787s in the future, can continue training using the best devices. “
With the arrival of the new simulator, Aeromexico can optimize scheduling and control of the pilot training process, in addition to streamlining the availability and productivity of their employees. The new device has been qualified by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC) to Level D, the highest recognition that a simulator receives from the authority in terms of aviation safety and operability. The simulator is equipped with more than 30 different specific visual scenes, including Mexico City International Airport, London and Paris.
The modern simulator offers the crews advanced technologies including real aircraft panels and a 200-degree field of view visual system. The Rockwell Collins EP8000 image generator with Eyevis projectors offer panoramic views and detailed airport scenes. The visual system combined with a state-of-the-art Instructor Operating Station and an industry leading electro-pneumatic motion system allows simulated flight scenarios in many different weather conditions.
