History

MSCbv commenced operation in January 2000

Prior to MSCbv opening its doors, the historical background of the owner of MSCbv in simulation was acquired by working for CAE Electronics for 7 years. Thereafter with KLM Simulator Engineering for 8 years and finally working for FSC in Hoofddorp the Netherlands for 7 years.
CAE provided the opportunity to work in both hardware and software for newly manufactured simulators. One of the significant events was being involved in a prototype new aircraft simulator for the Airbus A310. In 1982 this was a radically new and different type of aircraft whose goal was to revolutionise the aircraft industry by removing the Flight Engineer using new technology and instrumentation which has since become the standard aircraft design in all new aircraft builds.

While at CAE many business trips as a Site Chief and Field Service Representative to North America and European cities resulted in the next step in joining KLM.

KLM Simulator Engineering provided the opportunity to work on software and to specify new simulator builds for various new simulators including 737-300 EFIS, F100 prototype and the 747-400 prototype simulators.

FSC wanted to open a new facility in Hoofddorp the Netherlands and MSC owner started as the Manager and worked the building from virtually the first pole being laid, until 7 years later that it was a busy and well respected Training Centre. In this 7 year period the responsibilities were specifying new simulators, building specifications (to house the simulators and all training aspects related to a simulator training session), hiring new personnel, following and ensuring that all regulations related to personnel and building were all conform the regulations, running new projects with a team of my engineers.
