The Airbus Asia Training Centre (AATC) has inaugurated its fourth A350 Full-Flight Simulator (FFS). The addition consolidates AATC’s position as the largest Airbus-operated flight crew training centre in the company’s global network, with two A320, two A330, one A380 and four A350 simulators. AATC also hosts one ATR 72-600 FFS.

The focus on the A330, A350 and A380 reflects the popularity of Airbus wide-body aircraft in the Asia-Pacific region, with nearly 900 in service and around 220 currently on order for future delivery. AATC is a joint venture owned 55% by Airbus and 45% by Singapore Airlines (SIA). At almost 10,000 m² in size, the facility at Seletar Aerospace Park is part of the Airbus flight training network and serves the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. Since operations began in April 2016, AATC has successfully attracted 69 airline customers. AATC has the capacity to offer type rating and recurrent training courses for up to 10,000 trainees per year
