FlightSafety International has introduced its new FlightSafety FS1000 full flight simulator. "The all-new design and advances in technology incorporated into the FS1000 simulator will significantly enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the training FlightSafety and our commercial airline, government and military customers provide," said John Van Maren, vice president Simulation.
The simulator features tightly integrated computer hardware and software across subsystems which allows for more accurate and higher fidelity simulation than found in other current and previous generation simulators. It includes the latest multi-core 64-bit architecture and the supporting real-time tools. The simulator's new light weight and highly robust modular design offers added configuration flexibility and ease of systems integration. This will enable FlightSafety to respond quickly as new aircraft and advances in technology are introduced and will serve to increase reliability and reduce maintenance time. The completely new Instruction Operating Station has been designed to provide instructors with a highly productive and efficient work space equipped with an intuitive interface, scalable graphics, and large multi touch displays. The interior of the simulator offers close to twice the amount of interior space for flight instructors, and observers compared to previous generation simulators. The FS1000 has also been designed to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of FlightSafety's VITAL 1100 visual system, Crewview glass mirror display, and new electric Motion Cueing System.
