Canada’s Mechtronix has been selected to build a full flight trainer (FFT) for the Piper Meridian at its Montreal facility. The FFT is being acquired by OK Business Aircraft, which acts as the Piper dealer for central-eastern Europe. The contract was signed on the wing of the Meridian in the static park at EBACE 2013.

The simulator will be certified to EASA CS-FSTD standards as FTD Level 2, and will be installed at OK Business Aircraft’s training facilities at Pribram in the Czech Republic. The company has been providing type-rating training for European operators of the Meridian since 2006, so the addition of an FFT is a logical step to enhancing the efficiency and safety of the training operations. The simulator is expected to be installed in the second quarter of next year.
