ATR 72-600 Full Flight Simulator in Singapore awarded JCAB certification

This new certification by the Japanese Civil Aviation Authority enables us to better serve our Japanese customers, offering them additional capability to train their pilots as the country is steadily growing its ATR fleet.

As our teams are currently showcasing our high-standard training solutions at the Asia Pacific Airline Training Symposium (APATS – 29-30 August, in Singapore), and looking to attract new generations of ATR pilots, we are happy to announce that our Singapore Training Centre’s ATR-600 Full Flight Simulator was recently awarded the JCAB (Japanese Civil Aviation Authority) certification.

This certification enables us to offer additional training capabilities to our current and future Japanese customers, closer to their own operations. The process to obtain the initial certificate for Singapore’s ATR-600 FFS from the Japanese authorities took approximately 10 months. Our dossier, including both administrative and technical data, has been thoroughly assessed, and 30 hours of simulator sessions were conducted, during which tests were performed to showcase the simulator’s capabilities.

Full Flight Simulators (FFS) have become an indispensable tool in pilot training, providing an immersive experience that replicates actual flight conditions and aircraft behaviours. Motion and vibration effects, realistic visuals and sound effects are used to mimic actual flights, making it a cost-effective training solution – reducing the need for expensive flight hours on actual aircraft – and improving safety.

In a context of strong demand for pilots and technicians worldwide, this certification further illustrates the support we consistently seek to offer our customers, providing them with high-standard tailored training solutions using Competency-Based Training (CBT) concepts.
