ASG & Simtech Aviation Host Event for Trainee Airline Pilots
ASG and Simtech Aviation hosted an event on 16th October for trainee Airline Pilots where they had a unique opportunity to fly the Boeing 737-800 simulator for free. It was a fantastic day for all of those involved with attendees receiving plenty of free merchandise, refreshments and snacks, and of course some hands on time practising to fly the Boeing 737-800. Numbers for the event were very limited and all students were required to hold a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) in order to secure their place.
ASG founder & MD, Diarmuid O’Riordan, commented after the event: “It was fantastic to meet so many like minded people with a shared passion for the aviation industry. We all engaged with each other and had some great conversations and exchanges. We shared our own views on everything from future flight training options, airline recruitment, and the likely future trajectory of the industry. These past 18 months have been so challenging for anyone involved in the aviation industry and it was just great to finally be able to hold an in-person event. For me, personally, it was particularly nice to be able to meet, for the very first time, those many new ASG students who have put their faith in us for their ATPL theory training throughout the pandemic. Another major highlight was being able to see one of our former ASG students, John Murtagh, coach a current ASG student (Gary Freeman) on how to land the Boeing 737! Given the success of the recent event, and the fact that we could not facilitate everyone’s attendance due to the limited numbers, we certainly intend on holding many more events like this in the future”.
