Posted 3 December 2015 · Add Comment

Ethiopian Airlines has finalised installation of Boeing 777 Flight Simulator manufactured by CAE ahead of its schedule and is now ready for training.

This new B777 Flight Simulator is the fifth full flight simulator acquired, following the B767/B757, B737 NG, Q400 and the latest B787 full flight simulators which went operational back in March. 

Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde Gebremariam, said: “HRD (Human Resource Development) is one the four pillars of our Vision 2025, along with Fleet, Infrastructure and Systems; since well trained, adequately experienced and performance focused aviation professionals are the engines of our fast, profitable and sustainable growth agenda. The full sufficiency in pilot training with both full flight simulators and fixed training devices for all airplane models in our service enables us to provide training to our pilots with the latest aviation technology machines. The installation of these machines in our newly built flight operations building reduce travel time to distant places for training and will increase quality time with their family at home base. Our employees are our greatest asset and the main source of our competitive advantages and we will continue to make all required investment in training and Ethiopian Aviation Academy. As Africa’s flagship carrier, Ethiopian has always been and remains aviation technology leader in the continent; we will continue to introduce the latest equipment of full flight simulators with the aim to serve not only the needs of Ethiopian but also dedicated to bridging the aviation skill gap on the continent.”
