Mechtronix Delivers - Civil Aviation Training

Mechtronix Delivers

Mechtronix has delivered and commissioned its fixed-base Airbus A320 FFT X™ – MPL for ST Aerospace Academy (STAA), the commercial pilot training arm of ST Aerospace, in support of the academy’s Multi-crew pilot license (MPL) training. The concept of a device purely to support MPL Phase II training outcomes was conceived five years ago collaboratively by STAA, Mechtronix and MPL consultant Dieter Harms. The vision was to develop a flight simulation training device (FSTD) solution for MPL basic to intermediate phase non type specific training in a fixed-base environment. The FFT X-MPL helps students to gradually migrate onto the aircraft they may ultimately fly, while maintaining the generic training principles from the very first day of Phase II training, right up until the type rating.
