A home-made simulator for Mig-29 fighter jets was launched at Tehran's International Mehrabad Airport in the presence of Senior Air Force Commanders, Fars News Agency (FNA) reported.

At the ceremony, Iranian Air Force Lieutenant Commander General Mohammad Bakhshandeh appreciated the country's experts for building and overhauling different simulators.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran's Air Force has reached self-sufficiency and self-reliance in this sector (building simulators) and this has improved pilot training programs,” he said.

He expressed the hope that using the existing simulators the Air Force's operational power would increase every day.

Simulators help cadets receive better training and test their piloting and shooting skills in various weather conditions.

The product helps the country save millions of dollars.

Iran in April unveiled and launched its first home-made Mirage fighter jet simulator in a ceremony attended by Commander of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF) Brigadier General Hassan Shahsafi.

The Mirage simulator system was designed and built by Iranian engineers and all its parts were produced domestically.

Military officials said the machine enjoyed the capability to simulate flights in different weather conditions.

The officials also said that the simulator was built to enhance pilots' preciseness and skills as well as flight safety and reduce the costs.
