After an in-depth analysis, Nolinor has selected the Pan Am Flight Academy in Miami, Florida as their pilot training partner for the airline’s newly acquired Boeing 737-800. In 2019, Nolinor purchased the only 737-200 simulator on the market from the Pan Am Flight Academy.
On Wednesday (September 22, 2021), Nolinor Aviation announced the selection of the Pan Am Flight Academy in Miami, Florida as their pilot training partner for the airline’s newly acquired Boeing 737-800. The airline’s relationship with the training center started 15 years ago when Nolinor selected the academy for the training of their 737-200 pilots. Additionally, Nolinor purchased the only available full 737-200 flight simulator on the market from the Pan Am Flight Academy in 2019, and then proceeded to hand over management of the simulator to the flight academy. Nolinor pilots will now be able to carry out their regularly scheduled training in Miami, while enjoying their downtime in the popular sunny South Florida destination.
In Wednesday’s announcement, Nolinor Aviation’s President, Marco Prud’homme, said,
“It was important for Nolinor to choose a training organization that really cares about carriers and with whom we can build a long-term business relationship. We know, from having worked with them for years, that we can count on Pan Am.”
Also commenting on the expanded training partnership, Pan Am Flight Academy’s President, Jeff Portanova, added,
“At Pan Am Flight Academy we are honored to deliver quality training to our clients. Nolinor Aviation is more than a customer, they are a valued partner with whom we share comparable values, and a passion for aviation, combined with the belief that impeccable pilot training is key to the success of any airline and we are committed to Nolinor’s success.”
Founded in 1992, Nolinor Aviation is the largest airline offering specialized commercial charter flights in Canada. The company launched their wholly-owned OWG subsidiary in 2020.
