Out of Seville, from the Technological and Aerospace Park of Andalusia comes SEILAF, the first flight simulation center capable of developing scenes to be used for training and research in the area of fighting fires.
SEILAF is the result of an R&D project which hopes to, with the help of simulation, develop a platform capable of training pilots and other professionals who intervene in the case of forest fires.
The simulation center will be managed by two industry leaders in the world of technology. On one side, is Faasa, an aeronautics group with over 200,000 hours of flight experience battling forest fires and a fleet of more than 70 aircrafts in Spain and Chile. On the other is Indra, a Spanish multinational corporation, consulting and technology leader and one of the most important developers of flight simulators in the world. Supplying more than 200 flight simulators in 24 countries, Indra also offers training solutions in other areas of emergency response.
The unveiling was held in the hangar itself for a total of 200 guest including political figures, military authorities, executives and specialists in the field of aeronautics.
