AeroElite Training Services Achieves FAA Part 142 Type Rating Certification

Now Offering Industry Leading A320 Type Rating Training to Individual Pilots

EAGAN, MN--(Marketwire - May 3, 2010) -  AeroElite Training Services announced today that they have secured FAA Part 142 Certification for their cutting-edge A320 courses. The cornerstone program is the A320 Initial Type Rating built around Aerosim's Virtual Flight Deck™ distance learning program and on-site use of the Virtual Procedures Trainer™. Other approved programs include Recurrent Training and a High Altitude Endorsement program.

The vision of AeroElite is to ensure a pilot graduates with confidence and competence in addition to just certification. To help accomplish this goal, AeroElite leverages technology in all phases of training from simulation-based courseware delivered via USB drives to Level D full-flight simulators to make training effective and efficient. Instructors with actual A320 line flying and teaching experience will personally guide pilots through each program.

Stephanie Raley, training center manager, noted, "Going through the FAA approval process in today's environment of increased attention to the quality and depth of pilot training programs has been a rewarding experience. We are confident that we have built a training program that rivals any A320 training program on the market today." With FAA certification complete students will begin training next week.

The AeroElite training program is constructed with the look and feel of an airline operation. As such, pilots can expect to use the same tools airlines typically use such as actual manufacturer-produced manuals, computerized flight plans, electronic-based performance and weight and balance documents.
