MANILA -- Cebu Pacific has taken delivery of its first A330neo as it begins its widebody fleet modernization program.

The aircraft is configured with 459 seats in single-class layout and will be operated by the airline on trunk routes within the Philippines and the rest of Asia, as well as on longer range services to Australia and the Middle East. The A330neo offers versatility for a wide range of routes from shorter regional services to medium and long haul operations.

Altogether Cebu Pacific has ordered 16 A330neo, and also has 16 A320neo and 22 A321neo outstanding to be delivered. The low-cost carrier currently operates 50 Airbus aircraft, comprising 43 A320 Family and 7 A330ceo.

The aircraft is powered by Rolls-Royce’s latest-generation Trent 7000 engines and features a new composite wing with increased span for enhanced aerodynamics.

The A330neo brings a step change in efficiency, consuming 25% less fuel than previous generation aircraft and a similar reduction in CO2 emissions. The outstanding efficiency of the A330neo also ensures compliance with current and future sustainability requirements in terms of noise and emissions

With an order book of more than 1,800 aircraft at the end of October 2021, the A330 remains the most popular widebody family aircraft of all time.

BARCELONA -- BAA Training is adding an L3Harris full flight simulator (FFS) for the Airbus A320ceo and A320neo aircraft to the mix of equipment in its BAA Training Spain facility.

The agreement builds on an existing L3Harris and BAA Training relationship, including agreements from 2020 to deliver multiple full flight simulators and EASA Level 2 flight training devices (FTD) across BAA Training facilities in Europe and Asia.

The A320 FFS is currently being installed at BAA Training's center in Barcelona, and is scheduled to be ready for training at the end of 2021. The device is joining an A320ceo FFS, a Boeing 737 MAX FFS, and an A320 EASA Level 2 FTD. L3Harris is managing the manufacture and delivery of the latter two devices.

"We continue to support BAA Training's operations with this A320ceo/neo FFS, which improves both the quality and capacity of their training," said Alan Crawford, L3Harris President of Commercial Aviation. "This agreement reflects the exciting recovery we are seeing across the commercial aviation industry."

Marijus Ravoitis, Chief Executive Officer at BAA Training, said, "The equipment supplied by L3Harris will help BAA Training with its ambitious expansion plans. We're aiming to offer a diversity of choice for our airline customers -- an extended range of equipment in a number of different locations worldwide for their convenience."

BARCELONA -- A new Boeing 737 MAX full flight simulator (FFS) is now ready for training at BAA Training Spain's facilities near Barcelona-El Prat Airport. BAA said that the simulator, which is manufactured by L3Harris Technologies, guarantees a high-fidelity pilot training experience while maintaining high degrees of reliability and maintainability.

Aurimas Urbonas, Managing Director at BAA Training Spain, said, "At BAA Training Spain, we continue delivering quality and accommodating the demand of commercial airlines and aviation professionals. Incorporating the B737 MAX full flight simulator is yet another step to offer better variety and convenience to our customers. Compared to more than 200 B737NG simulators globally, approximately three dozen B737 MAX FFSs are a limited number, so we are pleased to be one of a few pilot training providers able to offer this kind of simulator training."

Customers can choose between the already available EASA standard B737 MAX Type Rating program and the soon-to-be-launched B737 MAX from B737NG Difference Training.

In addition, a B737 MAX flight training device (FTD) is to be added in early 2022 for use in combination with the FFS. BAA said that clients choosing to employ the equipment mix will reduce their training expenditures without compromising training quality.

BAA Training Spain features 11 simulator bays and an area of 5,300 square meters. It currently operates an A320ceo FFS and the B737 MAX FFS. An A320ceo/neo FFS and an A320 FTD Level 2 are being installed and are expected to be ready for training by the end of 2021.
