Mechtronix Systems Inc., an MWC company[1], is a Canadian top leader in the global flight simulation and training market specializing in the design and manufacture of flight simulation training devices (FSTD) for commercial, general and business aviation. The company founded in 1987 is based out of Montreal in Canada's aviation hub with a customer base in the Americas, Europe, the Middle-East and Asia. Mechtronix Systems products range from full flight simulators (FFS) to flight training devices (FTD). They have technical support centers strategically located around the globe to support worldwide customers that include major airlines, training centers and training organizations.



In the middle of the microprocessor revolution, in an R&D lab at Montreal’s Concordia University[2], five graduate students were assigned a project to build the first flight simulator using microprocessor technology, launched by the country's National Research Council (NRC). The five students successfully completed their project, graduated and established their own company in 1987, namely Mechtronix Systems Inc.

The company started as an engineering consultancy group specializing in all aspects of microprocessor industrial applications. When the aeronautical regulations later evolved to allow Mechtronix Systems technology to be offered on to the aviation training market, the graduate students launched in 1996 its family of flight training simulators ranging from software applications to full motion Full Flight Simulators (FFS). The launch was quickly followed by orders received worldwide for Level D Full Flight simulators and Flight Training Devices (FTD). Mechtronix Systems today has branches in Canada, Europe, USA, and Asia.

Products & Services

Mechtronix Systems manufactures a complete line of training devices[3] for general, business and commercial aviation. The product family includes Full Flight Simulators Level D, FNPTs (Flight and Navigation Procedures Trainers) and FTDs (Flight Training Devices). With research and development at the core of Mechtronix Systems culture, new products are repeatedly introduced to the market to meet unmet needs such as the FFT X™[4], an exact replica of the FFS without a motion base. Mechtronix Systems simulated aircraft range from small single-engine training airplanes, such as the Cessna 172 to commercial airplanes, such as the Boeing 737, Airbus 320, ATR 42/72.


Mechtronix Systems has received numerous appraisals and awards for innovations introduced to the aviation training market through in-house research & development, exporting strategies and product quality.
