MIAMI, March 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Global Crossing Airlines Group, Inc. (JET: TSX-V; JET.B: TSX-V; JETMF: OTCQB) (the “Company” or “GlobalX”) announces that it has selected New Zealand based Pacific Simulators (“PacSim”) to provide them with an FAA Level 5, NextGen Airbus A320 Flight Training Device (“FTD”).
GlobalX, headquartered in Miami, FL, has chosen the PacSim FTD to improve their training outcomes and to provide a seamless transition for pilots when moving to the Full Flight Simulator. The PacSim FTD is a fully enclosed cockpit which incorporates original Airbus parts for durability, reliability, and that ‘real aircraft feel’.
GlobalX CEO, Ed Wegel was impressed with the PacSim device and business case and said, “We evaluated every FTD manufacturer and compared functionality, maintenance and price – PacSim was the clear winner on all counts. This Level 5 FTD will save us on our pilot training costs, increases our simulator scheduling flexibility and gives us complete control over a significant portion of our pilot simulator training. We will be looking to add a second Level 5 FTD from PacSim as we grow our fleet.”
GlobalX has been steadily growing their Airbus fleet over the past 12 months and by the end of 2022 will have ten A320/A321 passenger aircraft and four freighter aircraft. Iain Pero, PacSim’s Sales Director is extremely pleased with the partnership, “GlobalX has seized the opportunity to enter the market during a pandemic. Ed and his team have made some very astute business decisions around their aircraft and training and PacSim is proud to have been selected as part of this growth.”
Delivery is planned for June 2022.
