Zurich, Switzerland – 20 December, 2017: AXIS Flight Training Systems, the independent flight simulator manufacturer, is announcing a successful end to 2017 with two orders for its ATR 72-600 full flight simulator (FFS) in the first two weeks of December.

A confirmed order from Alliance Aviation in Florida last week follows a transaction with Southern Pacific Flight Training in Brisbane, Australia, to end the year on a high for AXIS. As the most innovative and intuitive training products available on the market, AXIS’ ATR 72-600 simulator has been handpicked by various companies across the globe for its superior quality and technology.

Demand for ATR 72-600 full flight simulators is expected to rise worldwide in 2018: turboprop manufacturer ATR reports that operators of its aircraft are anticipating a need for 1,000 new pilots per year.

Jean-Luc Laydevant, AXIS Switzerland, says: “Our continued focus on technology, innovation and customer service is paying off. The industry status quo needs changing and customers are starting to recognise that AXIS is the premier provider in terms of service and support. Our reputation for excellence in serving our customers is growing and this latest transaction is another milestone for us. The momentum is gathering and we are looking forward to a very successful 2018.”

Alliance Aviation has been appointed by Simulator Ventures LLC to be the sponsor and operator of the new simulator. Captain Henry George, Training Center Manager, Alliance Aviation, says: “AXIS’ new simulator will make Alliance the first training school in the world to be able to offer FAA Approved ATR 72-600 certification courses. We are proud to partner with such an enterprising company, and it is thanks to AXIS that we will soon become the premier training school for ATR-600 operators in the USA.”
