02nd Mar 2022

SIMAERO proudly announces the EASA certification of its Full Flight Simulator ATR 42/72 located in its Johannesburg Training Centre, South Africa.

This full flight Simulator is convertible for 3 versions of the ATR aircraft: ATR 72-200 (EASA Level C), ATR 72-500 (EASA Level D) and ATR 42-300 (EASA Level C). The Simulator is further certified by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) for each of the 3 configuration, as well as ATR 42-500. The two certifications allow the ATR 42/72 full flight simulator to be used for advanced pilot training for ATR aircraft operators worldwide.

Capt. Olivier Bourgogne, Fleet Manager/Fleet Training Manager ATR of Air Mauritius, was among the first clients to evaluate the simulator for his airline needs. He confirmed that the ATR simulator and SIMAERO Johannesburg facility meet their requirement for training.
