What will show the Civil Aeronautic in the fair?

  • The strong commitment of the Aeronautical Authority places Colombia as the second country in Latin America, after Brazil, with the most simulators in the world. the second country in Latin America, after Brazil, with the most flight simulators for pilot training. flight simulators for pilot training.
  • In terms of the promotion of the aeronautical industry, efforts are reflected in the production of aircraft production of fumigation aircraft that benefit the agricultural sector in Valle del Cauca. agricultural sector in Valle del Cauca.

F-AIR CONNECTION 2021 has been the appropriate scenario for the Aeronautical Authority to present the results of the determined work that the the Authority has been carrying out to strengthen the development of the aeronautical industry in the country. aeronautical industry in the country.

This is how Colombia consolidates its position as the second country in Latin America with the second largest capacity of flight simulation devices. capacity of flight simulation devices. Between 2019 and 2021 it went from having six qualified FSTD devices to seventeen simulators.

The rapid advancement in the development of digital computers has led to the simulation to play an important role in the field of engineering and aviation. This This advancement allows simulation to play a pivotal role during the testing and development of new flight designs. development of new flight designs.

Francisco Ospina, secretary of Civil Aviation and Safety, explained the use of simulators as "training devices designed to strengthen the of the simulators as "training devices designed to strengthen the capabilities and competencies of pilots and competencies of pilots and flight crews, reducing the exposure of aircraft to situations of exposure of aircraft to hazardous situations and improving their competencies."

This is how this equipment becomes an essential part of the training of civilian and military pilots, providing them with the and military pilots, providing them with the necessary preparation for potentially critical situations that cannot be critical situations that cannot be replicated anywhere else but in the simulator.

Efraín Benavides, flight simulator technician, highlights "the importance of training and the use of these devices for the the importance of training and the use of these devices to improve the pilots' skills and capabilities in a dangerous situation. pilots in a dangerous situation.

With this, the country is positioning itself in a market of training services and solutions and the development of the aeronautical industry by promoting that flight crews can carry out training, operational flight crews to carry out their training, operational experiences and updates without having to having to leave the national territory.

Spraying aircraft production

.

Another of the great advances in the aeronautical industry comes after the process of special special airworthiness certification process that was granted to three Colombian aircraft for fumigation Colombian aircraft for aerial spraying at the IX version of F-AIR COLOMBIA 2019, with the participation of the president of the the President of the Republic, Iván duque Márquez, the Civil Aeronautics has continued to follow the Civil Aeronautics has closely followed the certification process, which is progressing satisfactorily with satisfactorily with nine new spraying aircraft in the country.

The coordinator of the Aeronautical Products Certification Group of the Aerocivil Aviation Authority, Jose Orlando Daza, highlighted the constant monitoring by the entity of the aircraft of the three Colombian companies the three Colombian companies (WACSA, AeroAlianza and Fumicaña) that participated in the certification process. certification process.

He also highlighted the support and assistance in the technical flight tests carried out on the aircraft, as well as in the production production tests performed on the aircraft, complying with the airworthiness requirements and the airworthiness requirements and the plans previously delivered and certified.

This reflects a benefit for the country, especially for the agricultural industry, which adds to the Colombian economic reactivation. to the Colombian economic reactivation, demonstrating that the national aviation industry works and will continue to work to strengthen and leverage will continue to work to strengthen and leverage this type of undertakings in the field of technological technological development of light aircraft.
