The Airbus A320 FFS is scheduled for delivery in the second half of 2022 and will support Air Astana’s newly-opened pilot training center, located at Nur-Sultan Nazarbayev Airport. It is the airline’s first full flight simulator and the first ever in Kazakhstan, significantly enhancing Air Astana and its subsidiary airline FlyArystan’s pilot training capabilities.
L3Harris’ RealitySeven full flight simulators utilise cutting-edge technology to deliver a high quality pilot training experience, support training center operators and offer the most realistic training for airline pilots. Due to its modular design, different aircraft model cockpits can be implemented, allowing the airlines to tailor training to their specific fleet.

“As a growing airline, we are delighted to be launching our new training center,” said Peter Foster, CEO, Air Astana. “This new simulator will play an important role in the continuous high-quality training we offer our pilots.”
