For years, pilots had to travel around the world to get their required training. Now, in troubling times where companies are looking for more reliable and cost-effective ways to train their personnel, Avion Group presents a groundbreaking idea which will change aviation. You can now get your own flight training centre at your doorstep, no investments required.

Erik Varwijk, CEO of Avion Group, gets excited talking about it: “Based on our own flight training centre experience, we can support companies with setting up their own training centre.” The Avion Full Flight Simulators have a unique self-contained design and do not require an access bridge or separate server or aircon rooms. This results in simplified building requirements and therefore lower costs. If needed, Avion Group sees to 24/7 operational support with the selection and training of local maintenance staff. When you can guarantee the hours, Avion Group will set-up and operate the centre for you. It’s even possible to operate a single bay centre. “It’s a quick win, with no more hassle. We give aviation companies of all sizes the opportunity to reduce training costs and minimize travel time of pilots”, Erik Varwijk explains. “But more importantly, we deliver an ultimate training experience that surprisingly excites even the most seasoned pilots in the world.”

Plug & Fly The most important part of the Avion Flight Training Center is the Full Flight Simulator. The integration of all systems and components within the simulator is the technological fundament of the Avion Full Flight Simulator, making it a fully self-contained device. The simulator can be entered via the unique, built-in airstairs. Avion’s simulators are built with an aluminium frame, composite materials, a minimum of wiring and therefore operates at significantly lower cost. “It allows us to deliver a Plug & Fly experience to our customers”, concludes Erik Varwijk. 

A new perspective
To emphasize their revolutionary idea, Avion Group has rebranded its website (www.aviongroup.aero) and launched a new corporate video. Recorded in the training centre of Avion Group at Malta, you can see the surprised faces of the pilots as they enter the Avion A320 Full Flight Simulator for the first time.
