FlightSafety International and Gulfstream Aerospace are preparing to provide training for the new Gulfstream G700 aircraft. The design of a new FlightSafety FS1000 full flight simulator for the aircraft is underway. The simulator is being built concurrently with the design and development of the aircraft and will be integral to the flight test program.
The simulator will be installed at the FlightSafety Learning Center in Savannah, Georgia, which is adjacent to Gulfstream’s main facility. The start of customer training will coincide with entry into service of the aircraft. Additional training locations will be determined by FlightSafety and Gulfstream in accordance with customer needs.
The technology systems and components installed in this new simulator will include the CrewView collimated glass mirror display, VITAL 1150 Visual System, electric motion cueing, and advanced instructor operating station. It will also feature 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.
