Launched as a collaboration between Titan Airways and VA Flight Training, the Cadet First Officer Programme has been developed to offer an industry-leading opportunity for low-hours cadet pilots.
Virtual Aviation (VA) has placed an order with Multi Pilot Simulations (MPS) for a new 737-800 fixed based simulator, which will be installed in November this year. The agreement also includes an option for VA to buy a new A320 FTD1 simulator from MPS, for delivery in the first half of 2018.
The new equipment will enable VA to significantly expand its capacity and training capabilities.
Virtual Aviation and FTA have entered into a training partnership which will allow FTA's students to undertake the AirlineReady™ MCC+JOC with VA after completing their flying training.
Remote tower technology has the potential to revolutionise the Air Traffic Control sector, by allowing multiple airports to be operated from a single location, which could be a helping hand for smaller airports around the world, in particular some areas in countries such as Sweden where harsh winters often make air the only feasible means of transportation.
Last week we had a brief visit from internet sensation “MenTour Pilot” to our Virtual Aviation offices at Cambridge Airport.
Beginning with the course starting on Thursday 24 March, our AirlineReady™ MCC+JOC is moving to a fixed schedule. This new schedule makes it easier for students to plan ahead, as the course start dates are now fixed for the rest of 2016.
