SIMAERO, a global and independent provider of pilot training services, is proud to announce the acquisition of the Airbus Helicopter – Super Puma AS332 M 1 Full Flight Simulator which will complete the existing fleet in SIMAERO Johannesburg Training Centre.
The simulator, manufactured by Thomson CSF, was initially set up in Switzerland and moved to our Johannesburg training center in 2009, when its owner Airbus Helicopters entrusted SIMAERO for the Housing and Maintenance of this device.
Keith Roseveare, General Manager of SIMAERO Johannesburg training center, commented “This cooperation and deal is an excellent example of SIMAERO’s advantage to be chosen as the preferred partner for Housing and Maintenance. Not only our maintenance quality is of the highest standard, but we also offer clients the opportunity to anticipate and manage their options upon contract termination. Purchase options are an example of how clients can exit efficiently an asset otherwise costly to relocate.”.

It offers Evans and Sutherland 5 channel projection 200°-60° visual system, MAKILA 1A1 engines, motion system with the vibration platform, NADIR MK2 Avionics FMS, autopilot, GPS, WX-radar and LVTO, Recency training, Checks, Type Rating, Zero flight time, auto-coupled approach capabilities.

“The ability to serve military customers is very important part of SIMAERO strategy”, says Nicolas Mouté, CEO of SIMAERO. “This acquisition helps us to diversify our clients’ portfolio as well as to prove that SIMAERO is one of the most important global aviation training providers”.
According the acquisition agreement, SIMAERO and Airbus Helicopters will continue their collaboration to ensure a smooth transition for customers until April 2021, from when the training will be provided directly by SIMAERO. During this transition period, SIMAERO will begin to offer training solutions to potential new military customers all around the world.
