Interjet is to open a new training facility in Toluca, equipped with an A320 FFS X from Mechtronix Systems to train its pilots at their operations base.
This will be Interjet’s first FFS and the first A320 full motion simulator to be installed in Mexico in 12 years. Interjet’s pilots will have unlimited access to the device at their home base, optimising crew coverage while lowering training costs by reducing time off the line and travel expenses.
“Our current A320 fleet of 22, plus the 12 to come, justify having our own training centre. Now we can cut drastically our crews training costs and enhance productivity,” explained Interjet CEO Jose Luis Garza. “Other A320 operators in the region can also benefit from our state-of-the art facility and Toluca’s convenient location. We selected Mechtronix after a careful examination of FSTD manufacturers.”
