Frasca International, Inc. has won a contract to supply a dual-qualified Bell 407 FAA Level B full flight simulator/Level 7 flight training device to Bell Helicopter for use at its Customer Training Academy in Fort Worth, Texas. The Frasca-built 407 will have capabilities to convert between the standard Bell Model 407 and the 407 GX, equipped with the Garmin G1000 avionics system. The simulator will be used for initial aircraft qualification, recurrent training and instrument training. This will be the first simulator certified to this level by Frasca in the United States, although the company has provided similar simulators in Europe. It will include an NVG (Night Vision Goggle) mode to allow simulation of the NVG environment using the actual NVG appliance and will be used to support Bell’s effort to provide night vision training for its customers.
