Mechtronix Systems Inc. – a manufacturer of Flight Simulation Training Devices (FSTD) – announced the purchase of two FSTD’s by Oxford Aviation Academy (OAA) for the Australian training center.

The order included an Ascent Jet Trainer, which is a regional jet for MCC training in a jet environment and jet orientation, and an Ascent Flight Trainer, which is used for IR training. They both meet MCC and MPL implementation in Australia and should be installed during this year – 2010.

“We selected Mechtronix’ FSTD’s for our Australian base as once again they proved to have the best product offering matching our specific requirements,” said Anthony Petteford, OAA’s managing director. “We trust them to have the most innovative training tools with the highest level of fidelity which is crucial for our determination to offer quality-oriented flight courses and raise training standards in Australia. Many factors were key in our decision to renew our trust in Mechtronix, such as their worldwide references as well as their experience and involvement with schools offering MPL programs. We already use Ascent(R) Jet Trainers(TM) at our training base in the UK and we knew this equipment would work well in the Australian context.”
