• Quito Airport is at the heart of the country’s aviation activity, hence the need for ongoing training of flight crews with the best technology and equipment.
  • FlyingPro offers ALX-80, the most efficient and versatile flight simulator on the market produced by the French company ALSIM.
  • FlyingPro is launched with the aim to provide ongoing cutting-edge technical training for flight crews at a national and international level. This civil aviation training center is certified by the Civil Aviation Authority of Ecuador and will operate at Quito International Airport as of January 22.


FlyingPro arises from the need to supplement initial and intermediate pilot training to achieve an efficient transition between the commercial pilot and the actual aircrew needs of the airlines. For now, several agreements are being negotiated with universities, national and foreign aviation schools, and joint ventures with aviation companies. The school will operate 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

“The ALX-80, the most efficient and versatile flight simulator on the market, has been selected to train crews. This activity will be carried out with highly qualified personnel from FlyingPro to offer training that, as our slogan says, will go beyond flying” says Gonzalo Mogollón, General Manager of the aviation school. The ALX-80 flight simulator was selected in January 2019 and is produced by the French company ALSIM, just like the main equipment to be used for the civil aviation training.


The Mayor of Quito, Jorge Yunda, adds “it is an honor that Quito has taken the initiative to inaugurate a flight training center. We highlight the importance of the private investment which creates employment. Together with Corporación Quiport, we are working to ensure that Quito Airport continues to be a national and international benchmark.”

At present, the adaptations for the training center have begun concurrently at Quito International Airport. The first project was installed in June and the second in October 2019, during which the Ecuadorian Civil Aviation Authority (DGAC) certified it as a Civil Aviation Training Center (CEAC) under RDAC 142, 60 and 61.

Andrew O’Brian, President and CEO of Corporación Quiport, affirms that “having an aviation school at the level of FlyingPro at Quito Airport allows us to supplement aviation services to the industry. This way, we can have a positive impact on training and employment, providing a suitable space to train crews.”

Quiport, concessionaire of the Mariscal Sucre Airport service, has the infrastructure to provide all the operating and administrative facilities that FlyingPro requires to operate. This is a result of Quiport’s strategy which adds value to the actions it carries out together with the Municipality of Quito and the Ecuadorian State.
