Simulator Manufacturer, Entrol, Announces New Line of Full Flight Simulator Level B Certified Devices

Entrol is proud to announce the new line of Full Flight Simulator (FFS) Level B certified products. Since the company was founded in 2005, Entrol has had one goal: to achieve excellence in flight simulators. Ever since, Entrol has been upgrading every product in the industry, developing a singular technology independence, growing together with their customers, and making their objectives also Entrol’s own.

“When we managed to certify our first FNPT, we knew we could level up by certifying our first FNPT II, and then the MCC came. We have managed to offer our customers the FTD certification, achieving the FTD Level 3 certification for helicopter simulators. But we needed more for us. We arrived in the USA with our first AATD, which gave us a better insight into the needs of the American market and made us discover new challenges and new offices,” said Entrol. “Today, we proudly want to announce that we have completed all the preparations to take the next step.”

Starting January 2024, Entrol will begin to offer their customers the certification FFS Level B, one step closer to its objective that began 18 years ago and today allows the company to fly even higher and further.

Entrol thanked Virtual Reality eXperience – VRXsim® for their collaboration, who will become Entrol’s preferential 6 degrees of freedom motion system provider and accompany the company in this new challenge.

ATP JETS Graduates 20,000th Airline Transport Pilot Certification Training Program (ATP CTP) Student

Dallas, Texas, United States based ATP JETS has graduated its 20,000th Airline Transport Pilot Certification Training Program (ATP CTP) student. Training nearly 500 pilots per month at its 29,380 sq. ft Part 142 airline training center in Irving, TX, ATP JETS has scaled to become the largest provider of CTP training to the nation’s airlines.

This innovative approach not only saves airline partners thousands in travel and hotel logistics but also provides students with a better learning experience while delivering the same proven training effectiveness.

Travis Sowers Recognized as 20,000th ATP CTP Student

Beyond ATP CTP training, airlines rely on ATP JETS’ advanced training capabilities to provide fully tailored programs and recruitment solutions. Innovative direct and jet transition programs effectively deliver airline-ready pilots at 1,500 hours – transitioning them from general aviation flying to advanced, highly automated turbine aircraft operations in a complex airline environment.

Regional Aircraft Manufacturer, ATR, Sees Strong Potential for its Aircraft Family in North America

In mid-November, ATR attended the Air Transport Association of Canada (ATAC) conference in Montreal, showcasing how efficient, versatile and future-proof its aircraft are, as part of the company’s efforts to expand its footprint in North America.

With eight ATR operators flying over 50 aircraft across Canada, ATR’s turboprops are praised for their capacity to transport both passengers and cargo to the most challenging destinations, flying where other aircraft can’t, serving unpaved and short runways in cold environments, and offering a lifeline to the most remote communities.

The ATAC conference provided ATR’s Sales and Marketing representatives a great opportunity to connect both with current operators and potential business prospects across North America, as the aircraft manufacturer sees a strong potential for the ATR -600 to replace ageing fleets, leveraging the many benefits of its latest generation aircraft, and particularly their lower maintenance costs, increased availability, improved reliability and low levels of CO2 emissions. Equipped with the new PW127XT, produced by Pratt & Whitney Canada, the ATR 72-600 boasts a remarkable 45% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to similar-size regional jets.

ATR also identifies Canada as a promising market for its upcoming ATR 42-600S, designed to reduce take-off and landing distances down to 800 metres – the ideal aircraft to operate in harsh conditions on the country’s many short unpaved runways.

This three-day conference provided valuable insights and networking opportunities for ATR to further strengthen its presence in the North American market, as ATR strongly believes they have the right product to connect Canada and the United States’ regions affordably, reliably and responsibly, and boost their economic activities.
