Pilot Flight Academy (PFA) based in Norway has ordered two DA42 NG simulators from Diamond Aircraft in Austria. CEO Frode Granlund says: “These simulators are a part of our long-term strategy and expansion plan. We have invested in people and good administrative systems to be able to educate larger groups of future airline pilots. Currently, we have 150 students in integrated pilot education and we are planning to double that number to 300 students in the next two years.

“We found that the simulators from Diamond Aircraft Austria are the best copy of the real aircraft, and that the pricing and support on offer is competitive.”
