BAA Training Selects L3Harris Technologies to Enhance Pilot Training Device Mix

2020-10-12

L3Harris Technologies has been selected by BAA Training to supply eight new flight training devices (FTDs) to further support BAA Training’s expansion program. L3Harris will install the eight new FTDs at BAA Training’s locations across Europe and Asia from 2021.

The agreement builds on the purchase of full flight simulators (FFS) announced in March 2020.

The eight FTDs are for a combination of A320, 737 MAX and 737 NG aircraft. All devices will be certified to European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Level 2 and provide a realistic training environment incorporating an enclosed cockpit, visual system and aircraft specific controls. The devices will support BAA Training with upcoming EASA regulatory changes, which allow for a better mix of training time to be recognized across the device suite. The devices will also feature L3Harris’ latest instructor station that has been redesigned to provide an instructor centric experience, supporting effective training from the start of each session.

“The new devices will perfectly supplement the soon to be installed FFS and enhance the device mix within our centers. With these technologically advanced devices, BAA Training will take a significant step forward in fulfilling our mission to provide customers with the most progressive aviation training. The BAA Training value combines the maximized training flexibility, cost-saving, and the greener approach. We are proud to take the lead in aviation training, starting the Green Deal focussed actions that will make a substantial positive impact on the environment,” commented Egle Vaitkeviciute, CEO of BAA Training.

“The shift of training from full flight simulators to fixed training devices has been discussed for some time. We look forward to supporting BAA Training’s device mix in preparation of changing regulations. This agreement demonstrates L3Harris’ capability to deliver a range of state-of-the-art devices utilizing a common platform to meet the changing training requirements,” added Alan Crawford, President, Commercial Aviation, L3Harris.
