AeroStar is pleased to announce that through a partnership program, we are now DGCA compliant for our A320 type rating course. Start dates through the end of the year are listed on our website. Enroll today!
Last week our newly purchased A320 simulator was delivered to our AeroStar hangar at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport. The sim arrived on two gigantic trucks, which were escorted by a caravan of vehicles (quite the sight!) and was finally unloaded into the sim bay that was built in our new hangar over the last several months.
This is the first of several sims that have been acquired by AeroStar, which will provide future students with the opportunity to complete all training in-house and not have to travel to other locations for the simulator portion of their training. “We look forward to making our sim training more convenient for our students and having state-of-the-art equipment on-site that we will also be able to lease out and use for many years to come,” said Deidra Toye, AeroStar’s president & CEO.
The official launch date of our new on-location sim training is March 2018. Check back for updates on our progress!
As an aspiring pilot, it is smart to do your homework about which aircraft qualifications will make you the most marketable as a pilot. You certainly don’t want to spend a lot of money getting qualified in an aircraft only to find that there are no jobs in that particular aircraft type.
Getting a type rating in the Airbus 320 is probably the safest bet – each time an aircraft is sold, more jobs for captains and first officers are created.
