Alpha Aviation enhances Clark operations with new A320 simulator

By Mar T. Supnad | Manila Bulletin

CLARK FREEPORT, Pampanga – Alpha Aviation Group (Philippines), Inc. (AAG), one of the country’s premier flying schools, is pursuing another major investment through the acquisition of a brand-new Airbus A320 full flight simulator (FFS) and expansion of its simulator training center.

“The twin projects are in line with AAG’s continuing commitment to provide world-class training solutions to its partners,” Cristopher Magdangal, AAG Regional Director for Asia- Pacific said.

“This is again part of our advocacy to help propel the Philippines into be- coming the region’s premier aviation training hub,” added Magdangal.

The projects will be undertaken through a US$9-million financing agreement with Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) and BPI Century Tokyo Lease and Finance Corporation that will bridge the acquisition of the A320 FFS and the US$1-million simulator training center expansion.

BPI Century Tokyo Lease and Finance Corporation has also previously funded AAG’s acquisition of six Cessna 172S G1000 basic flight trainer aircraft and one A320 Integrated Procedure Trainer (IPT).

The new flight simulator is expected to be ready for training (RFT) by 2019.

It will have full Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) capability and A320 New Engine Option (NEO) and Current Engine Option (CEO).

This new FFS will bring AAG’s current fleet of flight simulation training devices (FSTD) to a total of six, the largest in the country.

AAG currently operates one Alsim Flight Navigation Procedure Trainer (FNPT) II, one Aerosim A320 Basic Instrument Training Device (BITD)/ Integrated Procedure Trainer (IPT), one MPS A320 Fixed Base Simulator (FBS), one CAE A320 Full Flight Simulator (FFS) EASA Certified Level D, and one CAE A330/340 Full Flight Simulator (FFS) EASA Certified Level D.
