Silk Way West Airlines

Silk Way West Airlines, a cargo airline in the Caspian and Central Asian region, has purchased a 777-200LR Interchange Reality7e Full Flight Simulator (FFS) from L3Harris.

To be located at the Flight Training Centre in the Azerbaijan National Aviation Academy, the airline says that the FFS will provide a best-in-class training experience.

The Boeing 777-F Reality7e FFS will include a Boeing 777-200LR interchange to enable Silk Way West Airlines to offer training for its cargo operations, as well as the option to allocate excess training time to other B777-F and 777-200LR operators.

Silk Way West Airlines says the new simulator will increase the training capacity of its qualified and trainee pilots, enabling them to meet future demand for aviation services in Europe.

Mirsamed Movsumzade, chief finance officer of Silk Way Group, said: “We are pleased to sign this agreement that will give us an invaluable advantage in optimising our crew cost.

“Moreover, having this simulator located in Baku brings more flexibility and convenience in planning of crew training. This is an excellent way to maximise our efficiency.”

The simulator will be installed and ready for training by September 2024.
