The MAD training center is located near Barajas International Airport and has two Airbus Full-Motion Flight Simulators (A320 and A330 CEO & NEO)
Did you know that the world’s first Airbus A330 NEO simulator is owned and operated by Avenger Flight Group? Would you believe us if we told you this Full Flight Simulator is available for any airline wishing to conduct A330 NEO training? Although this simulator is unique, it is not exclusive to any of our airline partners and is available for booking by your organization!
For the past eight years Avenger Flight Group’s Founder and CEO, Pedro Sors, has been transforming the model of flight simulator training worldwide! Through his innovative model, new generation technology can be available for all low-cost airlines.
In August 2020, at our training center in Madrid, Spain, AFG began the installation of the first Sim International Airbus A330 NEO Full Flight Simulator. Our Director of Flight Standards, Captain Pablo de León, and a team from Sim International worked together to execute multiple airworthiness, movement, and visual tests to ensure legal compliance and alignment to Airbus’s flight standards.
At the end of October, Airbus began the final acceptance tests for the simulator. One week later, on November 4th, 2020, Airbus announced their approval for the commercial use of our A330 NEO Full Flight Simulator.
On November 23rd, 2020, the certification process was submitted to the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). After four full days of flight, technical, movement, and visual testing, the agency representatives expressed how highly impressed they were with AFG’s technical and logistic handling of the simulator. We are extremely proud of these results as there are very few training centers in Europe certified by the Spanish authorities, which maintains a reputation for being very strict in granting certifications.
Finally on December 4, 2020, AFG was awarded certification by the Spanish authorities allowing the commercialization of the world’s first A330 NEO simulator!
