October 15, 2018
FlightSafety International announces that it is building a new Dassault Falcon 2000LXS and Falcon 900LX interchangeable simulator. The simulator will be installed at the FlightSafety Learning Center in Teterboro, New Jersey.
Training using the new FlightSafety FS1000 simulator is scheduled to begin in August 2019 following Level D qualification by the FAA and EASA. Approval by other regulatory authorities will be completed according to Customer needs.
“We are expanding the capabilities offered at our Teterboro Center to meet the changing and growing needs of our Customers,” said Steve Gross, Senior Vice President, Commercial. “The Falcon 2000LXS and Falcon 900LX training program will include a wide variety of initial, recurrent, differences and update training for pilots, maintenance technicians and flight attendants.”
The simulator will feature the Dassault FalconEye Combined Vision System HUD along with FlightSafety’s latest advances in technology. This includes 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.
The Teterboro Learning Center currently offers a wide variety of pilot training programs for aircraft manufactured by Dassault Falcon Jet. They include the Falcon 50EX, Falcon 2000, Falcon 2000EX EASy series, Falcon 900EX, and Falcon 900EX EASy series. The Center also offers a new state-of-the-art facility for flight crew emergency training. It includes a pool for sea survival training, a full scale dunker, a hoist used to simulate being rescued from water by a helicopter, and a full scale cabin trainer equipped with a visual system for emergency and cabin service courses.
