ASG and Simtech Aviation form New Partnership

ASG has agreed a partnership to work closely with Simtech Aviation to provide students with preferential access and rates to undertake Simtech Aviation’s APS-MCC and MCC-JOC courses. ASG will also now provide ATPL theory training on behalf of Simtech Aviation and its customers.

All ATPL theory training at ASG can be completed online including revision classes. Students can elect to alternate between attending class online (login) or in-class (sit-in) and then sit the ATPL examinations in any EASA member state.

Commenting on the partnership, ASG founder Diarmuid O’Riordan noted: “We are delighted to partner with Simtech Aviation which has been a pillar brand in aviation training for many years. Both ASG & Simtech Aviation have a firm vision of delivering the highest quality aviation training.”

ASG’s administrative and classroom facilities will now be permanently based at Simtech’s unique aviation training centre. ATPL students will have the opportunity to learn in a 20,000 square feet training centre located next to Dublin Airport in a facility that has been designed from the ground up to provide a best-in-class learning environment for aviation professionals. ASG share the facility with a number of airlines and training organisations and the centre houses a fleet of Full-motion and fixed-base Flight Simulation Devices.

Although not the most expensive component of Pilot training, the decision as to where to complete an APS/MCC/JOC course is one of the most important choices that a student will face in terms of their likely success with Airline Assessments and subsequent Type Ratings.

Des Wynne, Simtech Aviation Sales Director, added: “We are delighted to offer ATPL theory courses as a part of our overall services offering. This will enable both enable experienced ICAO Commercial Pilot License holders convert to an EASA license and EASA PPL holders looking to move to a Commercial Pilots License complete their theory course with some of the best instructors in the industry. The added benefit of being able to attend the classes via an online platform enables us to access the global training market and we are excited by the potential opportunities”.
