Formed in 1994, Quadrant Systems operates a purpose-built flight simulation and training facility at Burgess Hill, West Sussex, providing UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) accredited Full Flight Training Simulators. The core elements of the purchase include training organisation, Quadrant Pilot, and four bay Full Flight Simulators.

With this acquisition – which coincides with the final stages of Air One’s further purchase of Pier Seven Aviation FZC - Air One Aviation will provide pilot training using six simulators for Boeing 737NG, B737CL, B747-400, B757-200 and Airbus A320 aircraft crews. The training centre at Burgess Hill also includes briefing rooms and other pilot training aids.



Paul Bennett, CEO of Air One Aviation Limited, stated: “I am delighted that we have completed the purchase of QSL, which has a superb reputation for delivering high quality, accredited pilot training services to many customers in the UK and across Europe. Combined with our planned acquisition of Pier Seven Aviation FZC in Sharjah, we will be able to offer a wider range of services on even more flight simulators and this positions us positively for future growth as the aviation industry starts to recover.”

Stephen Williams, Quadrant’s CEO said: “We have been in discussion with Air One Aviation on how to build the best training capability and services for our customers worldwide in an aviation industry which is learning to adapt to a new business environment following the global Covid pandemic. We are pleased to secure the future of the training business in Burgess Hill through this transaction.”

Air One Aviation Limited is based in London and acts as exclusive global sales agent to Aerotranscargo S.R.L, delivering a comprehensive range of services including global long-haul cargo, ACMI wet lease passenger operations, and aircraft charter services. Most recently, Air One was also awarded a global cargo GSA contract with Aviation Horizon to support its launch venture into the all-cargo market for regional 737 freighter services.
