FlightSafety International has been selected by Breeze Airways to provide Airbus A220 and Embraer E190 Full Flight Simulators (FFS) and Flight Training Devices (FTD). As part of a long-term agreement, FlightSafety will also maintain the operation of the devices and other crew training equipment for Breeze.
FlightSafety explains it is increasing its focus on training and equipment for the Commercial Airline Training market. The company is a leading provider of Airbus A220 training technology and has delivered nearly 40 E-jet Full Flight Simulators.
Breeze Airways is the new airline founded by veteran industry entrepreneur David Neeleman that started flight operations in 2021. The airline is currently flying to 16 underserved destinations in the U.S. “Breeze is diligent in selecting partners for long-term success, and FlightSafety’s vision and customer service made this an easy decision,” said Neeleman, Breeze Airways’ Chairman and CEO.
The initial simulators, engineered and manufactured by FlightSafety in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, will be delivered to Breeze Training Academy in 2022. The simulators will incorporate technologies for highest fidelity and reliability, and the A220 FFS and FTD will utilize Airbus’ Standard 1.0 software.
“We are excited and proud to partner with Breeze,” said FlightSafety President and CEO Brad Thress. “We’re committed to providing the best training and technology support to the world’s commercial airlines, and believe that our partnership with Breeze solidifies that.”
