FlightSafety International’s third Gulfstream G280 full flight simulator (FFS) will be installed at its Savannah, Georgia Learning Center before entering service in March 2018.
The simulator will be equipped with a FlightSafety CrewView collimated glass mirror display, which provides distortion-free optical performance with greater clarity, sharpness and brightness. It will also feature FlightSafety’s VITAL 1100 visual system, which offers highly detailed mission-specific imagery with enhanced scene content and environmental effects.
In addition, the G280 FFS will be equipped with the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion PlaneView 280 avionics suite as well as a Head-up Guidance System with Enhanced Vision System; Dual flight management system with LPV and RNP capabilities; and Integrated Flight Information System.
“FlightSafety is pleased and proud to support the growing number of Gulfstream 280 aircraft owners and operators around the world,” stated David Davenport, EVP Commercial, FlightSafety International. “Building our third simulator reinforces our commitment to provide the scheduling and training location flexibility our Customers expect and deserve.”
FlightSafety has been the official factory authorized training organization for Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation for more than four decades. Pilot, maintenance technician, and flight attendant training is offered for the complete line of Gulfstream aircraft using a fleet of 32 full flight simulators as well as other advanced training devices and equipment located at seven FlightSafety Learning Centers.
The first two simulators for the Gulfstream G280 are located at FlightSafety’s Learning Center in Dallas, Texas.
