European flight simulation provider Euramec has signed its first flight training contract in Africa to provide air charter company KASAS with a Dornier 228 FTD for cockpit and ground crew training.

KASAS, formed in 2016 in Nairobi, operates 13 Dornier Do228 aircraft and also provides four of the type for third-party operators. The company is considered a critical flying partner for NGOs such as the International Red Cross, Medecins sans Frontieres, Save the Children UK, GOAL Ireland and the UN World Food Program, operating in many central and east African hotspots.

Euramec is contracted to provide a certifiable flight training device for training new and existing KASAS cockpit and ground crews. The Do228 FTD will be mounted on a compact full-motion platform for full reality integration, and training is to commence early in 2020.

The motion platform will be supplied by Belgium-based Motion for Simulators. With this project Euramec is adding full-motion simulation to its existing catalogue of flight training. It will become an option in devices that are also used in upset recognition and recovery training, further improving pilot skills and maintaining proficiency at the highest level of the profession. The commercial partnership with Motion for Simulators will further enhance the value of selected Euramec simulators.
