GTA simulator (2019) is a B737 Full Flight Simulator level D located at its Spanish headquarters in Madrid and certified by the European authority (EASA)

The flight simulator manufactured by INDRA incorporates the latest technologies and EASA requirements regarding recovery from abnormal positions (Upset Prevention & Recovery Training) and Performance Based Navigation (PBN)

The Mexican Air Force has required a training program for Initial Courses and Recurrent Courses adapted to their special needs, broader than that required by EASA.

Global Training Aviation has announced that has been designated by the Mexican Air Force (FAM) to train their B737 NG pilots during the second half of 2020.

The FAM has required a training program for Initial Courses and Recurrent Courses for their 502 Air Squadron (EA 502) adapted to their needs, broader than that required by EASA and that has been specifically prepared by GTA.

In 2017, the FAM integrated to its fleet 5 aircraft of the B737 800 NG model to its EA 502, to renew its means of air transport and replace the old B727S. It is the most advanced model of this type of aircraft before the MAX version.

This fleet has, among others, the purpose of providing support in carrying out transport operations for the population in the event of a disaster , as has recently happened when two of these planes flew to Argentina to collect 174 Mexican citizens trapped after the closure of borders due to the Covid-19 crisis.

For its part, GTA launched its new simulator in May 2019. It is a B737 Full Flight Simulator level D manufactured by INDRA, located at its Spanish headquarters in Madrid and certified by European authority (EASA).

The certification for level D of the simulator, the highest possible, makes one hour of flight on board equal (for training purposes) to one hour of actual flight. The system replicates with complete accuracy the behavior of the aircraft and incorporates the latest technologies and EASA requirements regarding recovery from abnormal position (Upset Prevention & Recovery Training) and Performance Based Navigation (PBN).
