FLIGHT SIMULATOR

L-3 Link Simulation & Training’s (L-3 Link) Crawley, UK-based operation has been awarded a contract from Sichuan Airlines to build and deliver a fifth Airbus A320 RealitySeven™ full flight simulator (FFS). The new system will be one of the first A320 FFSs to be equipped with dual heads-up displays, enabling pilots to view flight information as they simultaneously look outside the simulator cockpit.

This latest A320 FFS will be installed at Sichuan Airlines’ training center in Chengdu, China, and be ready for training at the end of October 2015. Designed to Airbus standard 1.9, the RealitySeven simulator uses commercial-off-the-shelf technologies to reduce trainer life-cycle costs and is integrated with L-3 Link UK’s eM2K motion system.
