Training centre endorsed for CL-415 aerial firefighting aircraft

Viking Air Limited of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada has signed an agreement that brings Ansett Aviation Training of Melbourne, Australia, into the Amphibious Aircraft Division support network, joining Viking’s sister-company Pacific Sky Aviation Inc. as the second factory-endorsed training centre (FETC) for the Viking CL-415 aerial firefighting aircraft.

As part of the agreement, Ansett will invest in the development of what Viking said will be the first ever level D full flight simulator for the CL-415, which will be supplied by TRU Simulation + Training and installed at a new state-of-the-art training centre at Milan-Malpensa Airport, Italy, in 2018.
