Euramac gets first flight training contract in Africa

Posted 21 October 2019 · Add Comment

Euramec has announced its first Flight Training contract in Africa to provide air charter company KASAS with a Dornier 228 flight training device to conduct cockpit and ground crew training.

 

KASAS, formed in 2016 in Nairobi, operates 13 Dornier Do228 aircraft and also provides four Dornier 228 for third-party operators.

KASAS is considered a critical flying partner for NGOs such as the International Red Cross, Medecins sans Frontieres, Save the Children – UK, GOAL Ireland and the UN World Food Program, operating in many Central and East African hotspots.

EURAMEC is contracted to provide a certifiable Flight Training Device for training new and existing KASAS cockpit and ground crews. The Do-228 FTD will be mounted on a compact full-motion platform for full reality integration. Training is to commence early 2020.

The motion platform will be supplied by Belgium-based Motion for Simulators.   With this project EURAMEC is adding full-motion simulation to its existing catalogue of Flight Training.

The full-motion will become an option in devices that are also used in Upset Recognition and Recovery Training, further improving pilot skills and maintain proficiency at the highest level of the profession. The commercial partnership with Motion for Simulators will further enhance the value of selected Euramec simulators.
