FlightSafety Expands Pilatus PC-24 Training to Paris, France
FlightSafety International announces it will offer training for the Pilatus PC-24 aircraft at its Learning Center in Paris, France. This will be FlightSafety’s second PC-24 simulator and second training location.
“We are pleased to offer training for the new Pilatus PC-24 aircraft in Paris starting next year,” says David Davenport, executive vice president. “FlightSafety and Pilatus worked closely together to ensure owners and operators of the PC-24 receive the highest quality training and outstanding service they deserve and expect.”
Design and manufacture of the new FlightSafety FS1000 simulator for the PC-24 aircraft is underway at FlightSafety’s simulator design and manufacturing facility in Tulsa, OK. It will be equipped with the Honeywell Primus Apex avionics suite and incorporates synthetic vision. The simulator is expected to be qualified to Level D and enter service by the end of 2019.
The simulator will feature FlightSafety’s latest advances in technology, including the CrewView collimated glass mirror display and VITAL 1100 visual system. CrewView provides far superior distortion-free optical performance with greater clarity, sharpness and brightness. The glass technology provides a true spherical shape for exact geometry across the entire viewing area. VITAL 1100 significantly enhances training by providing highly detailed, mission-specific imagery with vastly improved scene content and exceptional environmental effects. Training benefits also include a whole-Earth environment and worldwide database that incorporates latest terrain information with geo-specific satellite images.
Training for the Pilatus PC-24 aircraft is currently offered at FlightSafety’s Learning Center in Dallas, TX, using a simulator qualified to Level D by the FAA and EASA. FlightSafety also provides training for the Pilatus PC-12 and PC-12NG in Dallas. Training for the PC-12NG will begin at FlightSafety’s Learning Center in Denver, CO, later this month.
