EgyptAIR completed a FSTD Evaluators course provided by EASA Consultants and FTD Consulting in cooperation with SimHelp. Three engineers were sent to Lithuania to have them trained on relevant parts of the EASA regulation, i.e. PART-FCL according regulation 1178/2011 and amendments, PART-ORA.FSTD according regulation 290/2012 and amendments, their related Acceptable Means of Compliance and Guidance Material as well as the certification specification CS-FSTD(A). The main purpose of this training course was to prepare EgyptAIR staff for audits on their Flight Simulation Training Devices (FSTDs) to be carried out according to EASA standards.
“I always love visiting the Baltics, and this was no exception. Having an opportunity to share my knowledge with flight simulator engineers was very enjoyable. I’m very happy to have partnered with SimHelp”, says Jeremy Baldwin the instructor from EASA Consultants who taught the engineers from EgyptAIR.
“We are very happy to have had the course carried out for EgyptAIR in cooperation with EASA Consultants and SimHelp. We as official partner of EASA Consultants believe that training on EASA regulations is necessary and will improve relationship and cooperation between Civil Aviation Authorities and FSTD operators in the future.” Says Alexander Schaffler, Managing Director of FTD Consulting.
This is another step towards business growth for SimHelp. “We are delighted to have EgyptAIR’s engineers here, using our services. They are a major company and working with them is a pleasure. We believe this will be the beginning of a great business relationship for all of the parties involved.”, says Julius Šeškauskas SimHelp Product Manager.
