Leading Edge Aviation announce further investments in their fleet with the addition of another DA42 Simulator. The sim has been manufactured and installed by Diamond and compliments their growing fleet of Diamond Aircraft and existing DA42 and A320 simulators. The device forms an important part of their Multi-Engine phase of training and is based at their dedicated sim centre, Hangar 18, next door to their Oxford Airport base.
Leading Edge Aviation’s Chief Operating Officer, Dave Alexander: “As Leading Edge Aviation grows, we want to continue to offer our student pilots the most advanced training possible. The DA42 simulator from Diamond will enable us to support our students not only with the best technology, but also in a timely manner. As we continue to expand, it’s important that we also increase our training capacity. The simulator compliments our growing fleet of Diamond aircraft, ensuring continuity of training for our students as they begin training on the single-engine DA40 before moving to the multi-engine DA42 aircraft and simulator, all using the Garmin G1000 NXi integrated flight deck. “
In addition to the new flight sim, Leading Edge have also expanded their aircraft fleet and now operate 9 x DA40, 4 x DA42 in addition to their Slingsby T67 Firefly, they look forward to announcing further news very soon.
