Fleet Expansion at Horizon SFA
Due to the increasing demand of pilot training and our demand forecast for the upcoming years, Horizon SFA has started talks with Diamond Aircraft (Wiener Neustadt, Austria) regarding a planned fleet expansion early summer 2018. In December 2018 Horizon Swiss Flight Academy and Diamond Aircraft finalized a deal and agreed on the terms for the delivery of two new Diamond DA42-VI multi-engine aircraft and one FNPTII simulator of the same type.
The first aircraft is scheduled for delivery in April 2019 and will be followed by another sister aircraft in June 2019, which will be operated in Bern in collaboration with our partner flight school alpaviation. The simulator is scheduled to be delivered in the second half of the same year. The Horizon SFA fleet will then consist of three multi-engine training aircraft, two FNPT II simulators and one Lightwing AC-4 single engine plane. Together with the fleets of our partner flight schools throughout Switzerland, Horizon SFA students will have access to more than 40 training devices.
