AFI KLM E&M host 61st EAMTC meeting – Bluelink Media Release - Tuesday, October 7th, 2014
On 14-15 October, AFI KLM E&M welcomes the European Aviation Maintenance Training Committee (EAMTC) for its 61st meeting on training. Régis Lamberthod, Head of Training Development and Marketing at Air France Industries, has the details.
Alongside other companies and MRO market players, AFI KLM E&M was a founder-member of the EAMTC back in 1984. The aim of this trade body was to share experience as a means of improving aircraft maintenance training beyond national borders.
Trainers to convene in Paris
On 14-15 October, AFI KLM E&M will be playing host to a total of 130 guests. As Régis Lamberthod says: “All the aircraft maintenance training departments of the leading European groups will be represented,.”
The first day’s proceedings will kick off with a keynote speech by Mladen Hanzevacki, EASA’s Continuing Airworthiness Rulemaking Officer. This will be followed by a Q&A session, discussions and round tables among the attendees. “During the 2-day meeting, our network of professionals will be able to work towards a common approach, work together on training programs, and share each other’s knowledge and resources. More importantly, they will be able to plan for tomorrow’s needs in terms of skills and aids to be developed.”
A winning approach for clients
Régis Lamberthod adds: “Events like the EAMTC meeting involve a vast amount of shared preparation work enabling us to offer our client companies the best training as much in line as possible with the latest compliance and safety guarantees.” This chimes perfectly with the AFI KLM E&M training offer, which supports its clients from A to Z on all possible scopes. That may entail a one-day course in Paris or Amsterdam, or directly on the client’s premises, but everything is up for discussion, with multiple approaches, all characterized by AFI KLM E&M’s trademark Adaptiveness©.
SAT’s newly-converted Airbus A320 simulator receives FOCA certification - Tuesday, October 7th, 2014
Zurich Airport, 7 October 2014 – Swiss AviationTraining (SAT) formally received the certification for its new Airbus A320 simulator from the Swiss Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA). The new simulator, which has been created by converting one of SAT’s two A321 simulators, is not only equipped to Airbus’s latest Standard 1.8 for the A320; it also features the innovative new Electric Motion technology which is already in use on SAT’s E-Jet simulators in Frankfurt and Munich, together with a new-generation visual system.
SAT is blazing new trails with its A321 simulator conversion. Instead of procuring a new device for its A320 flight training needs, the company elected to take one of its existing A321 simulators and radically modify and upgrade it to incorporate the latest technology and replicate the standards of the newest A320 aircraft in the SWISS fleet. “Our new A320 simulator gives us a more responsive system, along with electricity savings of 70%, lower oil consumption and less maintenance work,” says Marcel Witzig, SAT’s CEO.
The three-month conversion involved the delivery and incorporation of some 62 crates of parts and equipment weighing 20 tonnes. The new simulator can be set to replicate either of two A320 engine types – the CFM56-5B4 or the IAE V2527-A5 – depending on which is fitted to the training customer’s fleet. The new device also offers further added value through extra features such as its Integrated Standby Instrument System, its Runway Awareness and Advisory System and its state-of-the-art Flight Management System. The pilots using it are sure to appreciate the enhanced visual system, which extends to some 300 airports (to cover customers’ specific network needs), a new generic airport system and improved cloud simulations. And the new device even permits Upset Recovery, BUSS and Predictive Windshear to be included in its training sessions, too.
SAT operates a total of eight of its own full-flight simulators. Its two E-Jet simulators are located in Frankfurt and Munich, while its Zurich training centre is home to simulators for the Avro RJ, the Embraer 145, the Airbus A330/340 (two), the Airbus A321 and (now) the Airbus A320.
