Atlantic Flight Academy (AFA), founded by Atlasjet Airlines in order to meet the need for pilots,
started training pilot candidates.
Atlantic Flight Academy (AFA) was founded by Atlasjet Airlines in order to meet the increasing need
of pilots in the fast-growing aviation sector. AFA aims to train pilots that can use their sources
efficiently by possessing theoretical information at international standards and flight experience,
as well as by following the latest developments in the aviation technology. The modern facility of
AFA is located in Florya, Istanbul. AFA courses are in line with the standards of Joint Aviation
Authorities (JAA) and Ministry of Transport Directorate General of Civil Aviation. Publications from
the leading international academic institutions are being used in order to meet the international
standards in theory and flight training. For the flight training, AFA bought an ALX-FIRST flight
simulator from the French ALSIM Company. The stimulator complies with the FNPT-II standards of JAA and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Its installation at the AFA training centre was
completed in May. ALX-FIRST flight simulator is considered to be the most up-todate training
simulator that is capable of providing Jet Orientation Training (JOT) in advance of switching to jet planes as well as Multi Crew Cooperation (MCC) training on aircrafts certified to multipilots. In accordance with the contract signed with Diamond Aircraft Company, a total of 6 single-engine “DA20-C1 Eclipse” aircrafts produced in Canada in 2011, and 1 twin-engine “DA42-NG-New
Generation” produced in Australia have been added to the AFA fleet in Istanbul. AFA aims to increase the number of aircrafts in its fleet to 10 in 2011, and 20 in 2012. Aircrafts within the AFA fleet feature IFR flight potential at international standards and Glass Cockpit, which meets the requirements of future flight standards. The single-engine “DA20-C1 - Eclipse aircrafts are configured by “Garmin 500”; and twin-engine “DA42-NG aircrafts are configured by “Garmin 1000
