Norwegian Redflight Aviation acquired a Simnest A320 FNPT II APS MCC simulator. Redflight had no doubts about the supplier as they had extensive personal experience with the Simnest FNPT II MCC simulator. In addition to this high-fidelity device, Redflight will benefit from Simnest Aviation's expertise, as they have also purchased two essential documentation from Simnest, including a training manual to help with the successful operation of their ATO. This contract is a significant milestone for Simnest Aviation as it marks the company's entrance into another country.

Miklós Kacsó, CEO of Simnest Aviation, commented: "We have a special connection to Scandinavia, as we installed our very first Simnest A320 FNPT II MCC simulator in Denmark, which is a part of this region. So, in addition to Redflight Aviation being our first customer in Norway, this tie also adds to the significance of our agreement."

Redflight Aviation Mathias Slåttøy, former student of Simnest Aviation's pilot training organization, Simnest Pilot Academy, had a first-hand and in-depth experience with Simnest Aviation’s flagship product, the Simnest A320 FNPT II APS MCC simulator.

Oddbjørn Steinar Brungot, the responsible manager at Redflight Aviation, said: "Mathias was highly satisfied with the Simnest simulators he trained on as a cadet. We received a lot of positive feedback from him about the device, which led us to contact Simnest Aviation first when making our purchase. The initial discussions were very positive, the site constraints were quickly addressed, and the excellent price/performance ratio confirmed our initial impressions. As a result, we signed the contract with Simnest Aviation without hesitation.”

Since their first simulator in Denmark, which has been successfully in operation ever since Simnest Aviation has manufactured and installed many devices around the world. For Redflight, the only challenge was the limited space available for the simulator. However, Simnest's customizable solutions allowed their engineers to find a solution with ease. To meet the authorities' requirements while not compromising the visual parameters, the size of the instructor's box was reduced to fit the device in the room. 

As a simulator manufacturer who also operates an Approved Training Organization, Simnest Aviation has extensive knowledge and expertise to assist professionals in becoming an FSTD operator or an ATO. Redflight also decided to take advantage of this opportunity. In addition to Simnest's high-fidelity simulator that provides an airline environment for their cadets, Redflight also purchased Simnest's FSTD Operator Document Package and APS MCC Training Manual. 

Redflight Aviation's first FSTD has already been installed at Torp Airport in Sandefjord, Norway, and has successfully passed the on-site acceptance as well.
