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.
