Ethiopian Airlines adds Airbus A350 XWB flight simulator

Ethiopian Airlines has finalized the installation of an Airbus A350 XWB full flight simulator (FFS), becoming the first FFS operator of the type in Africa. The device is fitted with a full electrical motion system.

Ethiopian operates seven A350-900s with 17 on order.

Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO Tewolde Gebremariam said the introduction of the A350 XWB FFS is “a continuation of our pioneering role in African aviation technology” and is “part of our Vision 2025 strategic roadmap to be fully self-sufficient in the provision of pilot training in all the aircraft type we operate.”

The A350 XWB simulator, which is in the flight operations building at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport, complements five other FFSs, including Boeing 787, 777, 737NG, 757/767 and Bombardier Dash 8 Q400. The company also plans to add a Boeing 737 MAX FFS.

Ethiopian have invested over $125 million in the last seven years to expand and upgrade its training capabilities.
