Join the Avion family

Avion focuses on Full Flight Simulator design, manufacturing, and operation. Avion enables airlines to train at their home base, giving them complete control of the training schedule. This way, airlines can cut costs and CO2 emissions and have a well-rested flight crew. In other words: it benefits economic, environmental and social sustainability targets.
In early 2023, Avion entered into an agreement with an Indian Flight Training Company to supply eight Airbus A320 Full Flight Simulators. The new center is scheduled to open in July 2023, with two Avion A320 simulators being shipped to India and certified by the Indian civil aviation authority, DGCA. The remaining six simulators will be built and delivered in about eighteen months.
Avion is also ramping up its R&D activities by developing a Full Flight Simulator for the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, developing new functions like lesson plans, debrief tool and software updates for the Airbus A320 simulator. To support the enhanced R&D program, Avion will expand its team in the coming months.
