Bombardier Business Aircraft has added a Challenger 300 simulator to its Bombardier Dallas Training Centre, the company said. The simulator was certificated by the FAA at Bombardier’s Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.
“As the aircraft manufacturer, no one knows the aircraft better. Bombardier is committed to offering in-house OEM-developed courseware for flight and technical training, so our operators have the most up to date, tailored knowledge and technology at their fingertips,” said Andy Nureddin, VP of customer support and training for Bombardier Business Aircraft. “We not only design, build and maintain the aircraft, we fly them too, so operators who train with us benefit from our real world expertise by learning from one of 140 world-class instructors who fly or maintain the aircraft themselves.”
Bombardier’s Dallas training center now houses six Level D full-flight simulators, one flight training device, 21 multimedia interactive classrooms and other part task training devices. The company said the facility can train up to 3,000 pilots and 280 maintenance technicians each year. More than 5,300 pilots and technicians received training in both Montreal and Dallas last year, for a total of 34,400 hours of flight and technical training.
