In this first newsletter of 2019, we take the opportunity to look back on 2018: a successful year in which we have been expanding in numerous ways.
3 new sites
We opened three new sites: one in Stockholm (Sweden), one in Norrköping (Sweden) and one as a joint venture with skeyes in Brussels (Belgium). This brings our total number of sites to nine, six of which are training sites and three of which are system sites where we deliver simulator services. Our training sites are located in Malmö (Sweden), Shannon (Ireland), Dublin (Ireland), Budapest (Hungary), Madrid (Spain) and Brussels (Belgium). Our system sites can be found in Stockholm (Sweden), Norrköping (Sweden) and Copenhagen (Denmark). If you are interested in working at any of our sites: we are always interested in hearing from talented people who would like to join our team of professionals.
2 new 180° 3D SIMs and 40 new radar/pilot positions
In consolidation, we currently have one 360° 3D, five 270°/360° 3D, and twenty 180° 3D state-of-the-art simulators. Additionally, we have 360 radar/pilot simulator training positions. You can read more about our simulators here.
With the addition of our new sites, our training facilities are now spanning a total of 12,500 m2.
