South-Korean T'way Air selects ECA GROUP’s A330 Flight Management & Guidance System Trainer
Entrusted by over 20 international aviation companies, ECA Group’s A330 FMGS/T enables pilots to smoothly transition to a complex aircraft flight management system thanks to an easy-to-use interface and a complete set of available functions.
ECA Group developed the FMGS/T to answer training centers’ and trainees’ needs in regards to Flight Management System (FMS) familiarization. FMGS/T are available for a wide range of aircraft and offer a wide range of realistic simulations , while being cost-effective as it allows extensive training prior to engaging into expensive simulators sessions.
Furthermore, deployable on an iPad platform, this application allows students to perform self-study on mobile platforms handed over by T'way Air. This unique function further helps trainees to prepare for their higher-level simulator sessions; thus increasing their understanding and expertise of this complex aircraft system.
“With ECA Group’s FMGS/T and its auto-flight configurable setup, we can train our pilots to our specific aircraft, allowing training on our procedures, using our own airline Navigation Database. As importantly, the ability to upload our aircraft navdata enables us to train pilots in preparation of real case scenarios. Crews also have immediate access to the program, and with their Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), they can conveniently practice anywhere. Being able to see and practice during ground school will reduce overall training time and improve the crews’ confidence," expressed Captain Peter Hwang, A330 Flight Crew Training Development / Part Manager.
