From now to 2026, the requirement of pilots would exceed 3.5 lakh globally, driven by emerging aviation markets, including India and China. The current infrastructure for training pilots will not be able to sustain these numbers and there was need to go for massive induction of simulators, said Rene Veerman of Multi Pilot Simulations(MPS) JV which manufactures Boeing and Airbus professional flight simulation training devices (FSTD).

MPS was originally created out of a need for high-quality flight training after recognising a major deficiency in the level of training at which ab initio pilots were ‘delivered’ to airlines. The Boeing 737NG (600/700/800/900) and Airbus A320 (A318, A319, A320 and A321) simulators are designed for typerating, jet orientation course, recurrent training and MPL training.

Rene said the simulators from MPS were highly cost-efficient way of training pilots. “We are looking to a healthy future in India.”

MPS is represented in India by SRK Aviacom which is engaged in providing ‘total solutions for aviation’ including sales/support of flight simulator, aircraft/helicopter, aviation business consultancy, air charter flights, etc.

The products SRK Aviacom are representing include - Remos aircraft (made in Germany and meant for personal use, corporate, flight schools etc); Elite Simulation Solutions AG (advanced PC driven aircraft and helicopter simulators); and Adacel (supplier of simulators for training of ATCs in both civil and defense environments), said Captain Sanjay Kumar, Executive Director of SRK Aviacom.
