Construction of the new Airbus Asia Training Centre (AATC) in Singapore is now underway, following the completion of initial ground-breaking works.
Due to open in the first quarter of 2016, the new facility will offer type rating and recurrent training courses for all in-production Airbus types.
The 9.250 m2 state-of-the-art facility, located at Seletar Aerospace Park, will be the 4th Airbus flight training centre in its global network, joining those in Toulouse, Miami and Beijing.
When fully operational, the Singapore centre will feature eight full flight simulators, including four A350 XWBs, one A380, one A330 and two A320s.
"AATC is a true win-win partnership for Singapore Airlines and Airbus," said Singapore Airlines' Senior Vice President Flight Operations, Captain Gerard Yeap.
