First DA-40/DA-42 sales contract in China confirmed at Farnborough Airshow
Farnborough, UK/Harbin, China. 18 July 2018. Euramec, the European flight simulation manufacturer, unveiled the world’s first flight simulation combi solution of a Diamond DA-40 and DA-42 series at the Farnborough International Airshow here.
The unique DA-40/DA-42 solution now offers flight training schools a 2-for-1 package that underlines the mission of Euramec to offer the most cost-effective flight training devices for the market.
Bert Buyle, CEO Euramec: “I am thrilled to be able to confirm here at the Farnborough Airshow the availability of this groundbreaking new Euramec offering. What is even more exciting is that we can confirm the first sale of our new combi Da-40/DA-42 flight simulator to a new customer in China.”
In less than 30 minutes, the flight simulator can be reconfigured for either of the Diamond Series aircraft.
The consoles that are being swapped to prepare the flight simulation for either a DA-40 or a DA-42 set up, are in turn ready-made to allow students for desktop training by other students.
“Our solution is a world first and perfectly meets the demand of flight training organisations to maximize their return on investment,” Bert Buyle said.
Bespoke trainers: from Ultra Light to Business Jet
Euramec has several new flight simulation solutions on the drawing table, ranging from ultralight aircraft simulators to small business aircraft trainers. Euramec is expecting several orders for these new devices with delivery planned in 2019.
Bert Buyle: “We are growing fast and we are ready to expand our worldwide presence. In April the company set up a subsidiary in Hangzhou, China in addition to our existing offices in Harbin, Hong Kong and Singapore. A support office is planned at Shanghai Hongqiao airport later this year.”
During the Farnborough International Airshow, Euramec will also announce a sales and support office in Bangalore, India and possibly a further arrangement covering North America.
