Diamond Aircraft Austria delivered two DA40 NG, one DA42-VI and one Convertible DA40/42 MCC FNPT II simulator to AirHub Premium flight facility based in Vilnius, Lithuania.
Diamond Aircraft responded to the increased need of flight schools for Multi Crew Coordination (MCC) training and has developed an MCC add-on for its latest DA42-VI flight simulator. The company is now offering an approved FNPT II-MCC simulator complementing the perfect all-in-one solution with AirHub Aviation Lithuania being the first customer. Diamond’s simulator is fully modelled after the DA40 and the DA42 aircraft and is the only training device for the DA40/DA42 fleet available on the market that is based on an officially approved Diamond data package with MCC training option. Airhub benefits tremendously from its brand-new Diamond Convertible DA40/42 Simulator including MCC. It provides an all-in-one training on just one device (DA40, DA42, MCC) increasing cost-efficiency, reduced transition time from simulator to aircraft (cockpit environment is identical) and increased training efficiency as students can fully concentrate on their Multi Crew Coordination tasks without readjusting to different instrumentation (MCC is usually offered just in simulators for larger aircraft types).
Since 2017 AirHub provides professional flight training, well established charter and wet lease Airline – GetJet Airlines operating a total fleet of 13 aircraft which includes Airbus A320, A319, and widebody Airbus A330. Airhub’s training center is now extending its training capabilities to ATPL Integrated training program (Ab Initio Training), starting with two new groups of students in April 2021. This program will allow the students to become pilots in two years either in classroom or distance learning profile guaranteeing fast track employment to a First Officer position at GetJet Airlines upon successful completion of the training.
Additionally, AirHub is successfully offering premium private pilot training services for individuals willing to either purchase a single engine or multi engine airplane and start traveling on their own or use Airhub aircraft lease services with its brand-new Austro Engine jet-fuel powered Diamond aircraft.
“Simply there is no other one-stop shop platform which is made for the single and multi-engine aircraft and the corresponding high-quality simulator training for both professional and private pilots than Diamond. They are providing the best high-end option in the industry today,” said Ruta Kulvinskaite, CEO of Airhub Lithuania.
“We are very happy to support the growth of AirHub Aviation and to welcome them to our ever-growing Diamond Aircraft Family,” said Liqun (Frank) Zhang, CEO of Diamond Aircraft Austria. “The cooperation with AirHub Aviation has been a great pleasure and we’re looking forward to continuing to support them with the industry’s safest and most efficient training platforms as they continue to grow.”
