ENAC (Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile – French National Commercial Aviation School) chose ECA Group A320 FTD flight simulation solution for which a FNPT II MCC qualification was given by DGAC (French Commercial Aviation Authority).
The A320 Flight simulator delivered by ECA Group to ENAC (Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile – French National Commercial Aviation School) has been qualified to FNPT II MCC (Flight Navigation & Procedure Trainer – Multi-Crew Cooperation) standard by DGAC-DSAC in autumn 2016.
This qualification, obtained after hours of extensive testing by aviation experts, certifies the quality of ECA Group Flight Training Device and its compliance with the highest requirement levels. Its makes the difference between a generic familiarization tool and a professional training system, allowing ENAC to teach the 20 mandatory hours for MCC pilot training on ECA Group simulator.
ENAC, located in Toulouse, France, is the leading aeronautics and aviation university in Europe, providing a broad range of training, studies and research activities. ENAC is known internationally for its training of ATPL and MPL pilots and welcomes more than 3000 students per year.
ECA Group A320 FTD has been qualified FNPT II MCC but it actually exceeds the requirements of the norm, as it has been designed to comply with EASA FSTD(A) FTD Level 2 standard. Lower quality solutions include either a generic aircraft simulation or drastic simplifications of cockpit panels. ECA Group’s solution includes a unique combination of FFS Level hardware replicas and high fidelity simulation of Airbus A320 aircraft, allowing ENAC to use the simulator not only for MCC courses, but also to teach specific A320 procedures.
This FNPT II MCC qualification also shows ECA Group’s capability to develop and provide the best Flight Training solutions to meet professional aviation training requirements, from Part Task Trainers and Procedure Trainers to Full Flight Simulators.
