The Langkawi Aerospace
Training Centre of Kuala Lumpur has signed a contract for the
purchase of four TB-10 Tobago GT aircraft in training configuration
at Eurocopter Malaysia facility in Terminal 2, Sultan Abdul Aziz
Shah Airport, 47200 Subang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
As does Air France, China Airlines, Thai Airways, Qantas and
more than 50 flight training schools around the world, the
Langkawi-based flight training centre will operate these aircraft
for the use of basic and advanced training for their students.
These students will be training for careers as aerospace engineers
or airline pilots.
"For a future pilot, the aircraft on which you will get your
'wings' is of primary importance as it will condition its
behavior. For this role, we need the best training aircraft
and we found it with the TB 10 Tobago GT whose qualities have been
proven by the thousands of aircraft in service in high profile
flight training organizations all over the world," said Puan Sri
Mazmin Noordin, the Executive Director of LATC.
"We are proud that such an established and prestigious school
like the LATC has selected our aircraft and we look forward in
extending our partnership," stated Mr Philippe Lubrano, Managing
Director of Eurocopter Malaysia, the distributor of EADS Socata for
the South East Asia region (TB GT & TBM 700 aircraft).
