Center Air Pilot Academy Purchases Another First from Mechtronix: The Ascent® XJ Trainer(TM)

World's First Training Organization to Graduate Multi-crew Pilot Licensing Students Enhances MPL Program with New Flexible Jet and Turboprop Training Device

MONTREAL, March 3 / - Center Air Pilot Academy (CAPA) of Denmark, a pioneer in MPL training and Pilot Provisioning today announced its purchase of the all new Ascent® XJ Trainer(TM) by Mechtronix, the fastest growing and third leading manufacturer of flight training equipment in the world. This represents the second purchase of a flight training device by Center Air from Mechtronix for continued use in its MPL training program. Center Air was the first training organization in the world that provided graduates from its MPL program to an airline (Sterling). This new unit features a commercial jet platform that is reconfigurable to a regional jet or turboprop baseline providing a modern multi-crew flight deck training experience for its students seeking to fly for today's airlines.

The Ascent® XJ Trainer(TM) represents a flexible and cost efficient solution for the training organizations while also providing its ATPL and MPL students with a high fidelity visual experience. The new trainer will enable Center Air to train and prepare its students optimally for the complexity and procedures associated with today's commercial airlines and their larger jets equipped with automated flight decks. Equipped with a fully functional EFIS and FMS, the Ascent® XJ Trainer(TM) is designed and purposely built to be the most versatile training solution for entry-level preparation, bridge and LOFT training and to cover a large part of the sim hours required under pilot provisioning programs such as MPL. The trainer will be certified as per JAR-STD 3A FNPT II MCC standards under CAA of Denmark.

"The Ascent® XJ Trainer(TM) offers us the outstanding replication fidelity, economic savings and flexibility we need to continue being the leader in MPL training for today's airlines", said Anna Kjaer, Center Air's Chief Ground Instructor and Operations Manager. "This is our second Mechtronix simulator and like the last, we will count on it for the same reliability and quality we demand and have come to expect. With all things considered this is a vital investment that we are confident will serve our MPL students and airlines well for years to come."

"We are again honored by Center Air's continued faith in our technology and its exceptional suitability for the new device of choice for the world's leading MPL training program," said Xavier Herve, Mechtronix Systems' President. "This illustrates Mechtronix' innate ability to closely work with our customers and produce innovative engineering solutions that meet the ever changing needs of flight training organizations worldwide. We are the only manufacturer in flight training equipment to cater to both general and commercial markets hence offering solutions to bridge the gap between these two training communities. We look forward to working with great partners and innovators like Center Air to train a new generation of pilots."
