Fiji Airways has taken a massive step forward to do pilot and cabin crew training in-house following the acquiring of simulators.
Managing Director and CEO Andre Viljoen says they acquired a state of the art 330 simulator and a state of the art Max 8 simulator.
He says they have also acquired cabin crew simulators.
He says historically, they never had these and had to send their pilots overseas to undergo these simulator training or certification.
Viljoen adds if a pilot needed any additional training the inefficiency and dollar cost to them was massive.
He says now they have the facility to do instant additional training and also do upgrades in their certification.
He says pilots from Aircalin were sent here to get their training done.
Viljoen says they are one of the few airlines that have the Max 8 simulator.
He revealed that all their pilots have had their training on the Max 8 simulator and they are getting huge demand from around the world for training on that simulator.
