Alpha Aviation Group (AAG) Philippines will be adding an Airbus A320 simulator to its flight school in Clark.
The simulator can provide up to 6,000 hours of training annually and will allow the school to train about 300 new pilots for certification, said AAG Philippines.
This simulator, the second of its kind at the firm's four-bay simulator facility in Philippines, is expected to cost more than $10 million. The firm said Maybank will be providing the financing for the acquisition of the machine.
AAG Philippines is banking on the projected sustained growth of the aviation industry in the Philippines to expand its operations there, said chief operating officer Kunal Sharma.
AAG Philippines is one of three academies under UK-based AAG.
