May 20, 2019
FlightSafety International announced that the Dassault FalconEye Combined Vision System HUD has been incorporated into its Falcon 900LX simulator in Dallas as well as Falcon 8X and Falcon 2000LXS simulators in Paris. It will also be installed in a new Falcon 2000LXS/900LX interchangeable simulator which is scheduled to be available for training at the Teterboro Learning Center in October 2019.
“Incorporating the Dassault FalconEye HUD into our simulators for the Falcon 900LX, Falcon 2000LXS, Falcon 2000S, and Falcon 8X highlights FlightSafety’s commitment to develop and deliver training programs that meet the current and upcoming requirements of our Customers,” said Steve Gross, Senior Vice President, Commercial.
The course provides pilots with the information and training required to take full advantage of the FalconEye Combined Vision System HUD. Ground School and simulator training addresses normal and abnormal operations, operations procedures and limitations in all phases of flight.
FalconEye HUD combines synthetic, database-driven terrain mapping and actual thermal and low-light camera images into a single view that provides an unprecedented level of situational awareness to flight crews in all conditions of operation, day and night. Training courses for Operational Credit Down to 100 feet are also available for Falcons equipped with FalconEye HUD. In synthetic vision system (SVS) mode, the camera displays a 40° horizontal by 30° vertical field of view with a 1280×1024 resolution, one of the widest angles on any HUD, ensuring full coverage of the viewing area with no tunnel vision effects.
Training for Dassault Falcon aircraft is provided at FlightSafety’s Learning Centers in Columbus, Ohio; Dallas, Texas; Houston, Texas; Teterboro, New Jersey; Wilmington, Delaware; and at the Paris-Le Bourget airport.
