A Simloc A320 flight simulator has been delivered to the new Aerodynamics Academy facilities. This school is part of a new aeronautical campus, Axarquia Aviation Park, which is being built at the Velez Malaga (Malaga, Spain) aerodrome for the training of pilots, cabin crew and maintenance technicians.
The flight training device is an A320 with FTD1 certification level. The device consists a fiberglass hemispherical module, 7 meters in diameter by 4 meters in height, which includes a fully immersive and functional A320 replica cabin; a direct vision system of three FullHD projectors with a continuous semi-cylindrical screen 3 meters high, which offers a field of view of 180º x 40º for each pilot; a sound system and a training station (IOS).
Within the IOS, Simloc has created a comprehensive management software, called Simulator Management Control Suite or SMC Suite, which aims to assist the operator in managing all simulator functions.
This FTD incorporates an automated ATC simulation program, with artificial intelligence, so that students can become familiar with the management of air traffic communications, which contributes to increasing the realism of the training sessions.
With the acquisition of this simulator, Aerodynamics Academy will cover all phases of its pilot training, from ab initio to jet.
