Training Offered At Toronto's Downsview Airport
Bombardier Aerospace and
FlightSafety International announced last week FlightSafety now
offers pilot training on the first CRJ900 NextGen aircraft flight
simulator located in Canada.
The CRJ900 NextGen aircraft simulator is located at
FlightSafety's Learning Center adjacent to the Bombardier facility
at Downsview Airport in Toronto, Ontario. A launch ceremony,
attended by Todd Young, Vice-President Customer Support, Bombardier
Commercial Aircraft and Jim Waugh, Executive Vice-President,
FlightSafety International, along with employees of both
organizations, was held on May 13, 2008.
"FlightSafety will handle the pilot training that Bombardier's
own simulators cannot accommodate because of the increasing number
of CRJ900 NextGen aircraft orders and the subsequent growing
requirement for training," said Mr. Young.
"We are pleased to support Bombardier and the growing number of
CRJ900 NextGen aircraft operators with comprehensive training
programs using this new advanced technology simulator," said Mr.
Waugh. "The use of simulator-based training by Bombardier and our
mutual customers enhances safety and contributes to the aviation
industry's environmental efforts."
FlightSafety International is known within the aviation training
industry for its design and manufacture of full flight simulators
for civil and military aircraft programs. It operates a large fleet
of advanced full flight simulators at 40 training locations
throughout the world.
