FlightSafety International has announced that training using a new Dassault Falcon 2000LXS/900LX interchangeable simulator will begin on October 26, 2019, at the Teterboro Learning Center following FAA Level D qualification. The company has also announced new course offerings as well as congratulates the first graduates of the Cabin Systems Master Technician program.
The advances in technology incorporated into the new FlightSafety FS1000 simulator include FlightSafety’s VITAL visual system and CrewView collimated glass mirror display.
The simulator is also equipped with the Dassault FalconEye Combined Vision System HUD. It combines synthetic, database-driven terrain mapping and actual thermal and low-light camera images into a single view that provides an unprecedented level of situational awareness to flight crews in all conditions of operation, day and night. Training courses for Operational Credit Down to 100 feet are also available for Falcons equipped with FalconEye HUD. In synthetic vision system mode, the camera displays a 40-degree horizontal by 30-degree vertical field of view with a 1280-by-1024 resolution.
New Falcon Course Offerings
FlightSafety will offer an Advanced Rejected Takeoff Go/No-Go Recurrent course for pilots who fly the Falcon 2000EX EASy aircraft starting in November 2019. The course will be available at FlightSafety’s Learning Centers in Dallas, Texas, and Teterboro, New Jersey.
“Our Advanced Training Rejected takeoff Go/No-Go Recurrent course is designed to test and validate a Flight Departments Takeoff briefing abort criteria based on any adjustments made as a result of the Initial Rejected Takeoff Go/No-go course,” said Dann Runik, senior vice president, Operations. “Beyond initial concept and skill development, we took the training to the next level and the crews will face different scenarios involving different airports, weights, weather, and runway conditions. Based on their assessment of abort risk and their takeoff briefing, they are challenged to respond to various issues in close proximity to V1. This allows seat specific duties to be practiced and sharpened. Additionally, unexpected events occur requiring an emergency return, to ensure flight techniques previously learned are retained at the highest level. This course is the logical follow on training to the original course to keep perishable skills at the highest readiness level.”
FlightSafety also offers Advanced Upset Prevention and Recovery, Advanced Energy Management, Advanced Rejected Takeoff Go/No-Go, and Advanced CRM/Human Factors LOFT for pilots of fixed-wing aircraft.
First Graduates Complete Cabin Systems Master Technician Program
FlightSafety International congratulates the first graduates to complete the Cabin Systems Master Technician program.
“We are pleased to congratulate John Rowell, Director of Maintenance, Valero Services Inc. and Tommy Tippett, Gulfstream Aerospace on their significant achievement,” said Runik. “Completing our new Cabin Systems Master Technician path demonstrates John and Tommy’s in-depth understanding of the systems and ability to operate and maintain them to the highest standards.”
The Cabin Systems Master Technician program offers a progressive curriculum that follows a five step process. It is designed to provide technicians with the skills required to service and maintain the cabin of the aircraft they support at the highest level.
The FlightSafety Master Technician training program is designed to help technicians develop a higher level of skill and increase their problem-solving ability. It also enables them to further enhance their contributions to the safety, reliability and operating efficiency of the aircraft or components they support and maintain.
In order to complete the Cabin Systems program, technicians must complete five courses offered in partnership with Gulfstream Aerospace and Satcom Direct. They include: Avionics Standard Practices, Cabin Connectivity, Integrated Cabin Management Systems, Cabin Systems Operational Maintenance Program and aeroIT, the Satcom Direct module which can be completed through FlightSafety, or gained as a credit towards the Master Technician program through training at Satcom Direct.
Technicians who complete one or more of the FlightSafety Master Technician programs help to improve safety, lower aircraft operating costs and increase aircraft dispatch reliability.
