Canada’s CAE announced last week that a Boeing 777 full-flight simulator (FFS) built for Delta Air Lines is the first to achieve level-D qualification under the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration’s new FAR Part 60 rule. At the end of May, the FAA implemented more standardized and stringent qualification requirements for initial and continuing use of flight simulation training devices (FSTD). The CAE-built 7000 Series 777-300ER FFS was delivered to Delta’s training center in Atlanta, Georgia, that same month and achieved the level-D qualification from the FAA on June 26.
