Our SIM engineering team is responsible for maintaining 28 Flight Simulators based in Bergamo, Dublin, East Midlands and Stansted.

Our SIMS operate for over 20 hours per day. Our highly skilled SIM Engineering team carry out preventative maintenance and urgent repair of our SIMs. Quick action to resolve issues that affect the training of aircrew using the simulators and training equipment is a priority. This to ensure minimum disruption to our pilot training schedule.

The SIM Engineering team must also ensure the SIMs continue to replicate the aircraft type and maintain the highest regulatory certification to provide the best training to our aircrew.

Each year approx. 7000 pilots use our SIMs for initial and recurrent training.
