Ayjet Flight School in Turkey has ordered one Diamond Aircraft DA42 FNPT II flight simulator, to supplement its fleet of 26 single engine DA20 (currently 18; eight will soon join) and five twin engine DA42 aircraft.

Ayjet was established by a group of highly experienced captain pilots who between them have amassed many years of service in both the Turkish Air Force and commercial airline companies. They provide flight training to future pilots of Turkish Airlines, SunExpress, Pegasus Airlines and others. The flight school, which has also undertaken the management of Hezarfen airport in Istanbul since November 2020, continues its flight trainings actively at Tekirdağ Çorlu Atatürk airport, Balıkesir Koca Seyit airport, Muğla-Dalaman airport and Bursa Yenişehir airport.

"We are glad to add a new one to our long-standing partnership with Diamond Aircraft, whose products are the main components of our fleet. I believe that this beautiful collaboration of ours will continue for many more years. I hope that the Diamond Aircraft DA42 FNPT II flight simulator will be of great benefit to our school," says general manager Celal Cingoz.

"Diamond Aircraft is the only sole source provider in the flight training market. From single and multi-engine aircraft and the corresponding high-quality simulator to the proprietary jet fuel engine, the glass cockpit to pilot training and EASA Part-147 certified maintenance training in our own Approved Training Organisation," says Jane Wang, sales director, Diamond Aircraft Austria. "We are very proud to strengthen our long-term cooperation with our customer Ayjet with this new order and wish it all the best for the future."

Delivery is expected in 2024.
