Italian trainer makes en-1000x purchase
The Istituto Nautico San Giorgio has bought and taken delivery of an entrol en-1000x simulator for its facility in Genova.
The en-1000x is equipped with the MEP G1000 configuration to facilitate a transition to real aircraft.

The device is equipped with the MEP G1000 configuration to facilitate its the students' transition to real aircraft. The visual system is composed of three HD projectors that give a field of view of 200º x 40º, providing a complete immersion experience.

Juanjo Lechosa, business manager in charge of the project at entrol, says: “We have worked within a tight time constraint, making this project very challenging. entrol, in collaboration with Istituto Nautico San Giorgio, has been able not only to deliver the device in record time but also to complete the FNPT II certification process. We are proud to have accomplished such a feat.”

France-Line Costi, head of the Istituto's aeronautical department, adds: “I am very proud to say that, although the schedule was very tight, we reached the target in time thanks to wonderful teamwork. However the best is yet to come. The quality of our teaching will be enhanced thanks to the entrol en-1000X, and I'm sure our students will make the most of it.”

The device is already installed and certified as an FNPT II in Genova.
