The brand-new B737 MAX full flight simulator (FFS) is now ready for training at BAA Training Spain, near Barcelona-El Prat Airport. The simulator manufactured by L3Harris Technologies guarantees high fidelity pilot training experience while maintaining high degrees of reliability and maintainability.
Managing Director at BAA Training Spain, Aurimas Urbonas, says: „At BAA Training Spain, we continue delivering quality and accommodating the demand of commercial airlines and aviation professionals. Incorporating the B737 MAX full flight simulator is yet another step to offer better variety and convenience to our customers. Compared to more than 200 B737NG simulators globally, approximately three dozen B737 MAX FFSs are a limited number, so we are pleased to be one of a few pilot training providers able to offer this kind of simulator training.“
To cater to the growing interest in B737 MAX, BAA Training Spain is starting with respective training programs and adding other B737 MAX equipment complementary to the FFS.
Customers can choose between the already available EASA standard B737 MAX Type Rating program and the soon-to-be-launched B737 MAX from B737NG and B737NG from B737 MAX Differences Training, depending on the precise needs they have. Those getting ready to fly the type will cover B737 MAX FCC and MCAS, multiple flight deck alerts during non-normal conditions, stabilizer trim, and more crucial elements.
In addition, early in 2022, a B737 MAX FTD will be added to be used in combination with the corresponding FFS. Clients choosing to employ the equipment mix will reduce their training expenditures without compromising the training quality.
BAA Training Spain, featuring 7 simulator bays and an area of 5300 square meters, currently operates A320ceo FFS and from now on – also B737 MAX FFS. Additional A320ceo/neo FFS and A320 FTD Level 2 are being installed and are expected to be ready for training by the end of the year. Another FTD device – B737 MAX FTD Level 2 is planned to be ready for training in Q2 2022.
