BAA Training Vietnam expands their training equipment. A state-of-the-art Airbus A320neo full flight simulator has been assembled and approved by Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam to provide pilot training in Vietnam. A modern 3000-square-metre training centre opened doors in September of 2019 and with their first Airbus A320ceo full flight simulator started to provide pilot training for both airlines and independent pilots. As the first training device has already reached its full utilisation, the second, this time Airbus A320neo full flight simulator, is being introduced to the market.

In addition to the second full flight simulator, BAA Training Vietnam has installed a brand new training device for the firefighting training purposes – V9000 Commander. The device imitating fire and smoke is used to train cabin crew members to act in case of emergency: to fight fire and safely evacuate the passengers. 

The new SIM International manufactured Airbus A320 full flight simulator is a high fidelity Level D certified simulator, which  through a modular design, long life COTS products and a standardized product baseline, ensures minimal training interruptions. More importantly, new technological solutions allow to put a greater focus on the competency-based training.

“With the current full flight simulator technical abilities we are working towards the installation of the competency-based training system into the full flight simulator, which allows to take up this type of training to the new level. As competency-based training allows to develop pilot skills, which enables them to be able to handle unforeseen situations. Naturally our prime focus is to use all the possible tools and approaches towards such training”, comments Egle Vaitkeviciute, CEO at BAA Training. 

With the first full flight simulator BAA Training Vietnam presented the market with 7,300 flight hours a year and has already started partnerships with such well-established local airlines as VietJet or Bamboo Airways, which are set to grow their fleet to up to 30 aircraft by 2023. According to the CAAV, the Vietnamese airlines currently operate 170 aircraft, however the number will rise up to 200 by 2020 and this will require additional 200 pilots annually. With the second full flight simulator BAA Training Vietnam is bound to extend Airbus A320 FFS capacity up to 14,600 hours yearly. Two more full flight simulators are scheduled to be added by 2021.
