Hawaiian Airlines introduces state-of-the-art A330 simulator for pilot training
Hawaiian Airlines has unveiled a state-of-the-art Airbus A330 Full Flight Simulator (FFS) at its corporate headquarters to provide on-site training for its pilots. The simulator is manufactured by Sim-Industries, a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin, and allows Hawaiian to continue its Advanced Qualification Program for pilots using the most advanced and sophisticated technology available. Hawaiian is the first and only Hawaii-based airline to have a FFS on-site for its pilots. The multi-million-dollar investment is estimated to return $3.6m in cost savings every year.
