Dutch full flight simulator manufacturer Avion Group has unveiled Koropi as the location of its newest training centre in Greece.
The facility in Koropi is located within ten minutes of Athens International Airport. The new centre will feature the Avion A320 Level D Full Flight Simulator, the only one of its kind in Greece.
Avion has started construction work preparing the existing facility for pilot training. Starting from August, Greek airlines and approved training organizations no longer have to send their crew abroad for Airbus A320 flight training.
"Being able to train at your home base means huge savings on travel expenses," explained Erik Varwijk, CEO of Avion Group. "We are thrilled to open our Athens flight training centre this summer and feel warmed by the support we have received."
The state-of-the-art facility will house briefing rooms, classrooms, and a crew lounge.
The Avion A320 Full Flight Simulator has the Airbus Standard 2.0 CEO and NEO configurations available. The simulator will be EASA qualified. With energy savings of up to seventy per cent, Avion's training device is the most sustainable full flight simulator available worldwide.
