Airbus today signed a cooperation agreement with Tianjin HYLT Aviation Science and Technology Co. Ltd (HYLT), pursuant to which Airbus will provide HYLT with a Flight Training Device (FTD) software package and an Airbus Pilot Transition (APT) Trainer Data package (G05), as well as technical support. The Tianjin-based company specialises in the design and production of aviation simulating training devices and as a result of this agreement, HYLT will be able to design and produce an A320 APT Trainer in Tianjin. Technical support includes training for HYLT engineers and specific expertise on the use of G05 data.

“Thanks to this partnership, we have acquired the capacity to develop qualified and certified Airbus aircraft pilot training devices. Our objective is to make our contribution to the development of China’s aviation industry by providing world standard pilot training facilities in China. With the support from Airbus experts, we are confident we can successfully develop our Airbus pilot training business,” said Gu Zengwei, General Manager of HYLT.

“Pilot training plays a key role in the continuous safety of civil aviation. The cooperation between Airbus and HYLT will be highly beneficial to Chinese civil aviation authorities and airlines, as it will provide world standard pilot training devices at an affordable cost,” said Jiang Huaiyu, Director General, Flight Standard Department of CAAC.

“This agreement between Airbus and HYLT to develop the A320 APT trainer marks an additional and very positive development for Airbus’ cooperation with China’s aviation industry. This project demonstrates Airbus’ commitment to further develop aeronautical related business in Tianjin, following the success of the A320 Final Assembly Line China and the Wing Equipping phase 4 programme. Airbus will continue to cooperate with Chinese companies not only in the field of aeronautical manufacturing but also in other aeronautical services and activities such as safety, training, design and R&D,” said Laurence Barron, Airbus China President.
