Model

MONTREAL, Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ – Mechtronix Systems Inc., an MWC company,
a world leading manufacturer of Flight Simulation Training Devices
(FSTD), today announced that Mexican Interjet is opening a brand new
training facility in Toluca, equipped with an A320 FFS X(TM) to train
their 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 twelve years. Interjet’s pilots will have unlimited access to the
device at their home base of operation in Toluca; optimizing crew
coverage while lowering training costs by reducing time off the line
and travel expenses. The state-of-the-art unit provides an easier
access to training and enables Interjet to perform 100% of initial and
recurrent training at their base of operations. It will be evaluated by
the Mexican Aviation Authorities, Direccion General de Aviacion Civil,
following FAA 14 CFR Part 60 standard for Level D.

“Our current A320 fleet of 22, plus the 12 to come, justify having our
own training center. Now we can cut drastically our crews training
costs and enhance productivity. 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. We’re delighted with their professionalism, product
quality and technical skills demonstrated throughout the different
stages of the project and today” said Jose Luis Garza, Interjet CEO.

“We are thankful for the trust granted to Mechtronix by the very senior
management of Interjet; and installing an A320 FFS X(TM) in Mexico is
another achievement from Mechtronix as it adds up to our Airbus
references worldwide and strengthens our presence in this dynamic part
of the world”, explained Mechtronix President Xavier Herve. “Our
Train@Home business model allows growing airlines’ pilots to train at
operations home base in ground-breaking simulation technology at a
reasonable cost. Interjet’s fast growing fleet of 22 A320 aircraft
justified the investment in a Level D FFS and with such innovative
equipment, Interjet will offer top-quality A320 flight training, thus
contributing to the further raising of training standards in Mexico. It
was a real pleasure working together on this project and we trust
Interjet will be highly satisfied with their new simulator.”

The A320 FFS X(TM), a highly cost-effective and easy-to-operate platform,
enables the airline to save time and money. Built to Airbus standard
1.6, the A320 unit offers the highest Level D fidelity together with an
electric motion system and a collimated visual system that comes with a
library of specifically customized airports including Mexican cities to
which the airline provides service – Mexico, Toluca, Monterrey, among
others.
