Alpha Aviation Group Launches New $11 Million Simulator Facility

Major Expansion Includes Brand-New A320 Full Flight Simulator

Alpha Aviation Group (AAG), one of Asia’s leading pilot training providers, has formally opened its new $11 million Simulator Training Center Expansion Project at the AAG academy in the Philippines.

The new center, which forms part of AAG’s wider ongoing expansion project, will house four additional simulator bays, and includes a new Airbus A320 Version 2.0 Full Flight Simulator. The acquisition of the A320 simulator means the number of simulators operated by AAG rises to six – the most of any pilot training provider in the country.

Fully ready for training, the A320 sim comes with full Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) capability, and with both A320 New Engine Option (NEO) and Current Engine Option (CEO) capability.

The inauguration of the new facilities saw dignitaries gather for the launch event at AAG in Clark, including Bhanu Choudhrie, Founder of Alpha Aviation and Raul Del Rosario, Philippines Department of Transportation Undersecretary.

Currently over 300 cadets around the world study at AAG, for whom the new facilities will be a huge benefit. The majority of the group’s 900 graduates, who come from over 40 countries, have gone on to fly with leading regional airlines including VietJet, Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific and Air Asia Philippines, among others.

The new simulator will also enable AAG to increase efforts to tackle gender equality in the commercial aviation industry. Currently, it is estimated just 3 percent of the world’s pilots are women, while on average 20 percent of AAG’s students are female.

The Simulator Training Center and A320 simulator launch represent the latest phase of AAG’s ambitious expansion program. In 2017 AAG purchased two new simulators (A320 and A330/340). In 2018 and 2019, AAG expanded its fleet of Cessna training aircraft, from 16 aircraft to 32.

Following the launch of the Simulator Training Center, AAG will also later this year be accelerating the construction of the group’s new International Training Center for Aviation Training (AICAT). AICAT is a second training site in the north of the country which will include a hangar to accommodate new Cessna aircraft, offices, operations rooms, classrooms and dormitories.

Boeing’s latest Pilot Outlook predicts that the global aviation industry will require 804,000 more pilots by 2038, with the largest proportion of those – 266,000 – required across Asia-Pacific.
