By Tish Drake | October 25, 2011

Thales U.K. has been selected by British Airways (BA) to supply its new A380 full-flight simulator, Thales said Monday.

The simulator will be delivered to the British Airways Flight Training Center, Cranebank, located near London's Heathrow Airport, in January 2013, and will initially be used to provide advance training for BA pilots and aircrew in readiness for the entry into service of the first tranche of BA's new A380 aircraft later in 2013, Thales said.

The A380 simulator will be built at Thales U.K.’s Crawley facility.
