The company’s Miami Training Center has taken delivery of a B777 Level D simulator, as well as a B747- 400 Level D simulator. Both simulators have enhanced definition visual systems using satellite imagery as well as sophisticated weather and lighting effects to create highly realistic training scenarios for pilots. This brings the total number of commercial jet simulators in Miami to 20, making Pan Am the largest simulator-training provider in the Miami area.

Pan Am has also added an MD-11 full flight simulator to its Memphis Training Center. This Level D sim gives MD-11 operators worldwide a premier option for their simulator training.

Gregory Darrow, Senior Director of Sales at Pan Am states, “All three simulators are available for immediate flight training. We will continue to acquire additional simulators in 2012 and anticipate opening new international training centers in the near future.” More details are to be announced at WATS 2012, the World Aviation Training Conference and Tradeshow in Orlando Florida on April 17-19 where the company is participating as an exhibitor.
