FSTC is India’s first registered standalone Approved Training Organisation (ATO). It is the largest ATO in the region with the most number of full flight simulators catering to all the airlines in India that fly various fleet types. FSTC is also accredited by EASA, Airbus and Boeing. FSTC’s course curriculum conforms to the best in class international standards. Around 1,100 pilots have already been trained by FSTC and are inducted by all the major airlines in India. FSTC conducts type rating programmes on Boeing 737 NG, Airbus A320, Bombardier Q400 and ATR aircraft for airlines and self-sponsored individuals. FSTC has achieved a remarkable milestone in the last seven years by providing services to the aviation industry and creating a pool of trained pilots.
In December last year, FSTC became the first ATO in the region to induct a Level-D Full Flight ATR72-600 simulator, with DGCA giving certification to its brand new ATR72-600 simulator. The FFS simulator has an electric-pneumatic motion system allowing for silent operation, reduced power consumption and a front projection collimated 200°x40° FOV visual display system. The simulator has been installed at FSTC’s newly built Hyderabad Facility and is Ready for Training effective immediately. IndiGo has become the first official customer and have already started using the new device to train their ATR72-600 pilots.Speaking about the induction, Capt. Sanjay Mandavia, Founder and CEO of FSTC stated, “With the addition of this simulator, we are one step closer to our vision to be Asia’s leading ATO with a positive outlook on the market for training pilots both locally as well as in the region.”
