What Our Airline Clients Say

Andy Foan

“Sky Blue Aero Services are frequent users of Simtech Aviation simulators where we do ATR Type Rating courses for many UK airlines. The Simtech team do a fantastic job of maintaining the facilities and simulators to a high spec, and the service we get is exemplary. They have negotiated rates with a local 4* hotel and organise all transport, giving us one less thing to think about.

We would highly recommend Simtech to any airline or ATO looking for a quality Pilot Training and Simulator Centre and an exceptional team that provides around the clock support.”

George Haslett, NPCT

“Emerald Airlines works closely with Simtech Aviation in order to source and train candidates in preparation for the ATR 72 type rating, under the guidance of an excellent team of instructors, who possess a wealth of experience on the aircraft. We also use the ATR 72-600 simulator to assist with our recurrent training and checking programme for both our EASA and UK AoC regulatory requirements. The professional approach of the Simtech team has resulted in an Industry leading product being delivered to our airline.”

Robert Conroy, Head of Training and Standards

“Simtech Aviation is an excellent partner for our ATR 72-600 and ATR 72-500 pilot training requirements here at ASL Airlines Ireland. The simulators and facilities are maintained to the latest EASA standards and the entire team at Simtech is customer-focused, ensuring that we meet our obligations to our customer airlines.”
