FlightSafety International’s third Airbus A320 full flight simulator (FFS) built for Wisesoft Corporation has received Level D qualification from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). FlightSafety is building a fourth Airbus A320 for Wisesoft that will be delivered at the end of 2016.

The simulator is installed at the CAAC Shanghai Aircraft Airworthiness Certification Center in support of Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China Ltd. (COMAC) flight development and test pilot training. This is the first FlightSafety FS1000 Airbus A320 simulator equipped with interchangeable aircraft avionics and customized flight test training capabilities.

FlightSafety FS1000 simulators feature tightly integrated computer hardware and software across subsystems that allow for more accurate and higher fidelity simulation. They offer a new multi-function Instructor Operating Station designed to enhance the effectiveness of training by providing an intuitive interface, scalable graphics, and large multi touch displays. The simulators are equipped with FlightSafety’s VITAL 1100 visual system, electric motion control and cueing.
