Global Training Aviation is proud to announced that their new A320 Level D Full Flight Simulator (FFS), provided by INDRA, has received the Dirección General de Aviación Civil de Costa Rica certification and is ready for training. The FFS is located on the new premises of GTA, in Bogotá (COLOMBIA).
The demand for training in these simulators is so great that they operate virtually non-stop 24 hours a day.
The A320 is one of the best-selling passenger aircraft in the world. It is widely used by the most important airlines, including the Colombian airline Avianca.
The simulator has level D certification, the maximum certification available. This means that one hour of flight on board equals one hour of actual flight in terms of training. The system replicates the behavior of the aircraft with complete realism.
Pilots train in situations impossible to re-create in the air, such as the failure of an engine or an emergency landing. They also practice landings at any airport in the world, in all kinds of weather conditions.
GTA has head offices in 3 continents (Spain, Indonesia and Colombia) equipped with 6 state-of-the-art Full Flight Simulators, an A320 FNPT II, an Eca Faros Flight & Maintenance Training Equipment simulator (A320 and B737NG) and a CEET A320, Cabin Emergency Evacuation Training simulator for cabin crew training.
A winning strategy
In January of 2018, Indra and GTA signed an alliance to strengthen their leadership position in the global simulation and pilot-training market.
The technology firm took a 35% stake in the academy's share capital. This has ensured a sustained demand as a simulator manufacturer and the necessary business visibility in order to plan the improvements to ensure that their systems will always be the most advanced.
At the same time, GTA won the support of a company with a solid global presence, which has offices in more than 40 countries and which is active in 140. This is facilitating its global expansion. In this regard, GTA already covers training in Asia, Europe and now also Latin America through its facilities in Indonesia, Spain and Colombia, all of them equipped with Indra simulators.

Its philosophy is based on the most innovative teaching methodologies, the standardization of its training and the use of state-of-the-art simulation systems, thus achieving a sound training that values theory and practice equally.
