Description

Join the RAeS in a visit to South Australia's premier flight training facility!

Operating since 1982, FTA offers rotary and fixed wing ab-initio and upgrade training, as well as aircraft maintenance facilities and ground schooling to train both general aviation and airline pilots. FTA collaborates with many major airlines such as Virgin Australia, QantasLink, Cathay Pacific, Dragonair, Vietnam Airlines and IndiGo. FTA also conducts the practical flight training component of the UniSA Graduate Diploma in Aviation. For more information on FTA click here.

In addition to their fleet of 50 aircraft, FTA makes extensive use of the following Flight Training Devices (FTDs, aka simulators), which are fully representative of the training aircraft:

  • Two DA40 GTX Diamond AATDs
  • Two Diamond DA42 FTDs
  • One Mechtronix FFT-X MPL A320 simulator
  • Two Mechtronix Ascent XJ devices (Generic B737-800 Ng with ATR 42 flight module)

During our visit, experienced FTA instructors will give us on up-close look inside the Mechtronix Ascent devices. Configured for a generic commercial narrow-body jet or turbo-prop aircraft, the Ascent XJ/XT trainer is used by FTA to train students for multi-crew operations and transition to jet/turbo-prop aircraft with a modern glass cockpit. Featuring TCAS, EGPWS, FMS and weather radar the XJ/XT trainer's avionics suite will also aim to familiarise students with a highly automated flight deck, aided by an RSI Raster/xT Image Generator and 180x35° projected display.


Please note, there is a limit of 20 attendees, preference will be given to current financial RAeS members.
