safran supports enhanced pilot experience in virtual gulfstream flight deck
October 17, 2018
Safran Electronics & Defense, Avionics USA, LLC is collaborating with Gulfstream Aerospace by providing our fully simulated landing gear control handle as part of Gulfstream’s G500/600 Virtual Flight Deck on display during NBAA-BACE.
As part of the virtual flight deck, the landing gear control handle provides simulated gear positions identical to its function in the aircraft, allowing the pilot to reach out and move the physical handle and be fully immersed in the virtual reality experience.
“By using the fully operative landing gear control handle in the virtual flight deck, it gives the pilot a true sense of the handle’s movement and performance,” said Trice Smith, President & CEO Safran Electronics & Defense, Avionics USA, LLC. “It completely enhances the experience such as if they were actually flying.”
Safran also produces the landing gear control handle for the Gulfstream G550, G650 and 650ER aircraft. The Gulfstream G500/600 Virtual Flight Deck is on display at the Gulfstream static during NBAA-BACE. To learn more about Safran technologies, visit us at NBAA-BACE Booth #2235.
