  • Simaero’s new B1900 course includes eight days of ground school and 16 hours of simulator training, with 12 hours on a fixed-base simulator

Simaero South Africa has received the civil aviation authority's (SACAA) approval for a new optimized Beechcraft 1900 type rating course.

The program consists of eight days ground school for technical training and Multi Crew Cooperation plus 16 hours of simulator training of which 12 hours are performed on fixed base mode.

The Beechcraft 1900 is a popular aircraft in Africa with a wide range of uses for passenger and cargo operations. This flight training device has a Level D qualification and is equipped with an FSI Vital 9 visual system. The visual systems provide a wide field of view. The visuals are combined with aerodynamic and meteorological effects, delivering a high degree of accuracy when compared to the actual aircraft.

The motion platform of the Level D simulator produces accelerations in all six degrees of freedom experienced by a body in space. These accurate sensory movements are critical for pilot training, helping the pilot better analyze the aircraft's state.

An accurate system called control loading provides force feedback to the pilot's controls. The force feedback system adjusts with differing speeds, flap configuration, and wing loading to better simulate what a pilot may feel at the aircraft controls through all phases of flight.

The B1900 full flight simulator is located at Simaero Johannesburg training center, only 10 minutes away from OR Tambo International Airport, Africa.
