Euramec, the European flight simulation manufacturer, today announced the development of their Airbus A320 Flight Simulator Series with an innovative Second Lifecycle Design.
Using newly-recycled A320 cockpit sections, Euramec will offer its signature high ROI flight training solutions on a meticulously detailed cockpit design for the commercial aviation industry.
The Euramec A320 Full-Glass Cockpit Flight Training Device (FTD) will be certifiable under EASA FNPT Level II MCC specifications.
Euramec provides 45 x 240 degrees Field of View and high-resolution imagery capable of distinguishing environmental conditions experienced during all phases of flight, from taxi and takeoff to landing for its A320 Family Flight Simulator Devices.
Bert Buyle, CEO Euramec: “We believe in Balanced Simplicity. Recycling an Airbus A320 cockpit that flew commercial flights only a few months earlier, makes perfect sense to all parties.
“We provide a perfect tool at the right time at the right price with our A320 Flight Training Device to meet the strong demand for quality flight and maintenance training.”
An A320 takes off or lands every 2 seconds
With one aircraft in three sizes (A319, A320 & A321), the A320 Family is the world’s most popular single-aisle aircraft family as it is the preferred choice with airlines, from the low cost carriers for which it is now the aircraft of choice, to new business models taking benefits of new levels of performance and comfort, and with passengers across the globe.
Airbus confirmed 14,639 orders from 300+ customers with 8,788 deliveries and 5,851 in backlog with a monthly production rate of 60 aircraft.
The A320neo, A321neo and the A321LR has 95 % airframe spares commonality with the A320 Family, according to Airbus.
The Euramec Airbus A320 FTD roadmap is scheduled to produce the first A320 Family Cockpit by the end of 2020 with deliveries to start in 2021.
