Latvian airline airBaltic announces that it has ordered an Airbus A220 Level D full flight simulator from global aviation training leader CAE. The new CAE 7000XR Series simulator is scheduled for delivery by the end of 2019.

Martin Gauss, CEO of airBaltic: “Introducing a single fleet type of up to 80 Airbus A220-300 aircraft also means that as an airline we will have to train hundreds of our existing and future pilots. A state-of-the-art full-flight simulator located right next to our headquarters will provide much desired training simplicity and cost reductions.”

“The new simulator will add to the uniqueness of airBaltic Training. There are only two Airbus A220 simulators in Europe. This will be the newest such simulator in the world,” Martin Gauss added.

airBaltic is one of the most forward-thinking airlines in Europe, and we are happy to be supporting the airline’s impressive growth with our best-in-class training solutions,’’ said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions.  

The simulator will be based at the airBaltic Training facilities in Riga International Airport and it is the first new full flight simulator ever purchased by a Latvian company.The business plan for its purchase and utilization has been approved by the airBaltic Supervisory board.

airBaltic has ordered a fully equipped simulator that will include a 60” Stroke Electric Motion System as well as the most modern visual system, consisting of four million-megapixel LED Projector systems and dual head-up displays. The CAE7000XR Series FFS, equipped with the CAE Tropos™ 6000XR visual system for unprecedented realism, will serve the growing pilot training needs of airBaltic Training. 

airBaltic serves over 70 destinations from Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius, offering the largest variety of destinations and convenient connections via Riga to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, the CIS and the Middle East. In summer 2019,airBalticwill introduce five new destinations from Riga to Dublin, Stuttgart and Lviv as well as Kos and Menorca.
