New Zealand FTD manufacturer Pacific Simulators (PacSim) has delivered another flight simulator into the USA.
Aero Strategies Group (ASG) based in Morrisville, North Carolina, took delivery of a NextGen ProJet PS4.5 FTD, which is a fully enclosed, fixed-base simulator representing the Boeing 737NG. ASG have established a brand-new, training center which is located just 5 minutes’ drive from the Raleigh-Durham International Airport. The training facility can accommodate multiple ground school schedules and provides exclusive use of all onsite amenities.
The PacSim FTD includes the all new PacVision 220° Visual System and spacious Instructor Station suitable for training larger student groups. The ASG Center and FTD will be used by local flight schools and airlines for a range of different training applications which will include: –
- Pilot Pathway Program Training
- Jet Transition Course
- Crew Resource Management & Human Factors
- SIT (Systems Integration Training)
- Human Factors/CRM
- Supplemental Training
- Assessments for Pilot Recruitment
ASG’s President, Tom Armstrong was excited at the handover, “We started this journey with PacSim earlier this year and they have done a brilliant job to complete the project despite the challenges the Covid pandemic has thrown at them. The simulator itself is terrific and we look forward to building our business around this great training tool.”

Iain Pero, Sales Director at PacSim was impressed with the new facility, “ASG has invested heavily in a modern, state-of-the-art training center, which is one of a kind in the region. With the increasing shortage of pilots in the US due to Covid, the timing could not have been better. Tom has great vision, and we feel privileged that he selected PacSim as his partner on this project.”
