The visit was arranged by L3Harris represented by Mr. Zuhair Mattar/Regional Director to brief His Excellency on the A320 Simulator that is manufactured and updated to STD.2.0 ceo by L3Harris and operated by JATS.

His Excellency flew the A320 sim with Captain Zuhair Ghariabeh/Head of Training and was shown all various normal and abnormal maneuvers.

Some excerpts from His Excellency Tweeting’s :

Final one in this series: showing how far & rapidly simulator technology has advanced, from almost all manual below to almost all high tech today from @L3_CA Photos are the 1st commercial simulator,for a Boeing 707, used by His Late Majesty in 1960 @tradegovukJOR @UKinJordan

This & the next are for flying enthusiasts only. This is what it feels like in a top-of-line @L3_CA Airbus A320-200 simulator approaching a well-known airport on one engine after a bird-strike on final approach: v calm & apparently normal (we made it!) @UKinJordan @tradegovukJOR

This is the 3rd example I’ve seen in 3 days of where Jordan’s future competitive economic edge surely lies for the next generation: to operate as a regional platform providing high value-added goods &, especially as here, services @tradegovukJOR @UKinJordan @L3_CA

JATS’ great motto “Learning to fly never ends” could be applied to learning generally. Here I was under the expert instruction of Captain Zuhair Ghaibeh, w/over 30,000 hours in the RJAF & @RoyalJordanian ,learning to fly the A320-200 Airbus from @L3_CA @tradegovukJOR @UKinJordan

Wonderful visit to the partnership between @L3HarrisTech & Jordanian Airline Training & Simulation (JATS) at QAIA.World-leading UK simulation equipment paired w/ deep Jordanian expertise in flying instruction,providing a region-wide top quality service @UKinJordan @tradegovukJOR
