Cannes Aviation Academy has purchased an entrol A32 FNPT II MCC simulator.
This simulator will be installed in Cannes Mandelieu Airport. It will be used for APS MCC, and ATPL, in line with the skills demanded by the airlines to fly a commercial twin jet.
The Entrol A32 FNPT II MCC is based on the A320, featuring PBN, TCAS II, EGPWS, Windshear Warning System and Predictive Windshear.
This unit will also have a smoke machine to enhance the pilot immersion during training, and a debriefing station to replay and review training sessions.
"To advance our development and expand our training program, the acquisition of an MCC simulator was imperative to meet the demand of our students for the integrated ATP program and the modular program, rather than having to outsource it with less flexibility and at a more expensive cost.
We thoroughly tested and evaluated entrol's A320-based A32 FNPT II MCC simulator and concluded that it is a capable, sophisticated and realistic machine, ideal for the development of advanced airline multi-crew skills. We were also impressed with Entrol's skills and quality of service.
We are therefore pleased to announce that we will soon be offering MCC and APS MCC training to the highest standards, allowing us to deliver the full ATP integrated into our school. In addition to providing MCC and APS MCC stand-alone training" comments Mathieu Di Costanzo, Cannes Aviation Academy's CEO.
