The new simulator complex “FS1000 Embraer E190-E1 Level D Full Flight Simulator” will allow providing the full training and certification of pilots of Azerbaijan's low-cost airline Buta Airways. A preliminary purchase contract of this simulator was reached in November this year at Dubai Air Show 2019.
“The National Aviation Academy (NAA) is the training unit of civil aviation personnel of Azerbaijan. Therefore, we are constantly working on expansion its material and technical base. Together with the rector of the NAA, academician Arif Pashayev, the decision was taken to build a second building on the territory of the Academy, the construction of which is nearing completion intended for a simulator complex. It will house flight simulators for Embraer E-190 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The signing of today's contract is another confirmation that we are working hard to develop and improve the professionalism of aviation personnel,” – noted Jahangir Asgarov.

Every year, Theoretical Training Department provides participation of more than 7000 civil aviation specialists in more than 300 advanced training courses. Four flight simulators - Airbus A319/320, Boeing 757/767, ATR-42/72, as well as MI-8AMT helicopter – functioning at the Practical Training Department are of great importance important for the acquisition and maintenance of professional pilot skills.
