September 12, 2016 – HAITE Aviation Training Singapore (HAITE Singapore), has reported that its 21,000m2 training center in Changi Business Park, which it opened in April 2015, has proved a success. The center serves as a training hub for pilots and aviation-related crews, and provides training for commercial airlines that do not have their own simulators or training centers, as well as those with insufficient capacity for their training needs.
Commenting on developments since the launch of the facility, Marc Nadeau, managing director of HAITE Singapore, stated, “Our first training session commenced last May and we have been gradually increasing our training volume since. To date, we have provided training to over 1,500 air crew from a number of airlines and training organizations in the ASEAN region.”
In line with its growth plans, the HAITE Group is currently evaluating the market with the intention of adding new training devices into its network of training centers, including Singapore. At present, the Singapore Aviation Training Centre is equipped with the following state-of-the-art training devices: a B737-800W full flight simulator, an A320 full flight simulator, and an A320 integrated procedure trainer (IPT).
Over the next four years, HAITE Singapore expects to expand its service offering progressively to its full seven-bay capacity. By then, the facility will be able to provide over 40,000 hours of training per year.
Moving forward, HAITE Singapore plans to expand its current repertoire of services to include customized training programs led by its own instructors. The company is also aggressively looking into acquisitions and joint ventures, with the aim of developing co-operative relationships with aviation companies and industries worldwide.
