Ansett will invest in the development of what Viking said will be the first ever level D full flight simulator for the CL-415.

Viking Air Limited of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada has signed an agreement that brings Ansett Aviation Training of Melbourne, Australia, into the Amphibious Aircraft Division support network, joining Viking’s sister-company Pacific Sky Aviation Inc. as the second factory-endorsed training centre (FETC) for the Viking CL-415 aerial firefighting aircraft.

As part of the agreement, Ansett will invest in the development of what Viking said will be the first ever level D full flight simulator for the CL-415, which will be supplied by TRU Simulation + Training and installed at a new state-of-the-art training centre at Milan-Malpensa Airport, Italy, in 2018.
