Enter Air (https://www.enterair.pl/), a leading Polish charter airline and the second largest airline in the region, together with US-based Avenger Flight Group (https://www.afgsim.com), an independent world leader in aviation training, are set to launch one of the most advanced flight simulators in Poland. The simulator has been certified by the Civil Aviation Office and will be used for training of Enter Air pilots as well as pilots from other airlines.
DWF in Poland was involved in this transaction from its beginning, namely from the negotiations on the terms and conditions, through the phase of structuring the joint venture, as well as preparing and negotiating the transaction documentation, filing a motion to the antimonopoly authority and to the closing of the transaction and financing.
Michal Pawlowski, Managing Partner of DWF in Poland commented, "We are proud to have been able to support Enter Air Group in this ground-breaking and pioneering project on the Polish market. We have been cooperating with the Group practically since the beginning of its activity and it is an amazing experience to witness and participate in the next stages of its spectacular development."
Marcin Kubrak, Member of the Board and Director of Air Operations of Enter Air, also commented, "Launching the simulator means opening a new chapter in the history of Polish aviation, as it will be the first device of this class in Poland. The project is being carried out with a reputable partner – AFG company from the USA, one of the largest independent companies in the world involved in running simulator-training centres. Our own simulator will allow us to significantly reduce the cost of training and to make significant savings of available time for pilots. The training centre will, however, be open to pilots of other airlines, so it will also provide us with additional revenue."
