Australian company Ryan Aerospace has announced the recent achievement of a milestone, in the shipping of its 500th flight simulator.

The company started producing rotary wing simulators in 2005 and later ventured into the fixed wing flight training market. Whilst traditional simulators are part of Ryan’s product offering, virtual and mixed reality technologies have taken the company to the next level.

The US Air Force, US Navy and US Army are the top customers of Ryan Aerospace, installing hundreds of devices around the US in support of Pilot Training Transformation (PTT)/Undergraduate Pilot Training (UPT2.5), Aviator Training Next (ATN) and Fighter Bomber Fundamentals.

The company stated that significant sales have also occurred in Australia, Europe and the Middle East, with key customers including prime contractors such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Sikorsky, BAE Systems, CAE, Airbus Helicopters, EDMS.

Managing Director, Chris Ryan said he was thrilled to reach this milestone and very proud of his small but growing team operating out of its Gold Coast Facility in Australia.

“In the meantime, we’re straight back at it with another seventy or so simulators to go out the door in the next two months,” he said.

“We look forward to continuing the work we are doing with Prime working with Vertex Solutions (USA) and Precision Flight Controls (USA) who have been instrumental partners in many of these projects.”
