RMIT University has announced it will introduce a state-of-the-art flight simulator to its Vietnam campus.

The flight simulator will improve the quality of aviation training in Vietnam for local students.

The announcement was witnessed by the Premier of the state of Victoria in Australia, Mr. Daniel Andrews, during his visit to Vietnam on October 20 and 21.

The Reconfigurable Flight Training Device will be the first of its kind in Vietnam, showcasing the latest in-flight training simulation technology currently in use at RMIT’s flight training campuses in Victoria.

RMIT Vice-Chancellor and President Mr. Martin Bean was thrilled to announce the investment in Vietnam.

“RMIT is proud to be a leader in Australian pilot training, aviation, and aerospace engineering,” he said. “This investment in Vietnam reflects RMIT’s commitment to providing the necessary skills training for Vietnam and supporting the region’s rapidly changing workforce needs.”

Mr. Andrews reflected on the partnership and Victoria’s thriving relationship with Vietnam in aviation and education.

“RMIT is a leader in aviation training in Victoria and it’s terrific to see our local university leverage their strengths, technology and investment in Vietnam to help connect us,” he said.

The investment will allow student pilots in Vietnam to practice in simulated versions of aircraft before commencing practical training in Australia.

The flight simulator will be available for use in aviation training programs from next year.

The university last month formed a strategic partnership with the Sovico Group and the Vietjet JSC to improve the quality of Vietnam’s workforce in aviation, management, and engineering.
