Orlando, United States (Apr. 19, 2016)ACCEL Flight Simulation (ACCEL) signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) with UK-based Aviate Training Technologies (Aviate) for a long term strategic partnership towards Simulated Environment for Realistic Air Traffic Control (ATC) training solutions (SERA) on full flight simulators for commercial aircrafts.
Under the agreement, Aviate will provide one 737 Next Generation Flight Management Computer Training device and one A320 Flight Management Guidance System training device as bailment units to ACCEL facility in China for a purpose of demonstration. With the installation of SERA licensed by ASTi on both devices, it provides accurate, real -world radio communications using unique, realistic "human" voices to teach students proper terminology and interaction with synthetic controllers.
The agreement between our two great companies will benefit the global training market, especially in China. Currently, ATC at all airports across China use English to communicate with pilots of foreign airlines and Mandarin with those flying for Chinese carriers. The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) will mandate that its air traffic controllers use only English when communicating with pilots of any airline starting in 2017. ACCEL Flight Simulation, based in Tianjin China, will now be offering ATC training products along with its other high quality solutions” said by Scott Watson, General Manager for ACCEL.
"Aviate Training Technologies are delighted to have the opportunity this agreement provides working with a great partner in ACCEL. Together we can provide our ground breaking Boeing and Airbus procedural training devices to a new market place for Aviate. These devices have been designed to support ASTi's SATCE SERA solution and are the perfect product to support the mandatory requirement to use English from 2017 in Chinese airspace.” Said Steve Masson managing Director for Aviate Training Technologies.
