L-3 Link Simulation & Training (Booth U75) has announced that its operation in Crawley, U.K., has been awarded a contract by Cathay Pacific to deliver two Airbus A350 full-flight simulators, two pilot transition trainers and multiple flight management system (FMS) trainers.

Cathay Pacific will install the equipment in its flight-training center at Hong Kong International Airport. It plans full operation of all systems during the third quarter of 2015 to support A350 fleet introduction the following year.

The Airbus A350 training equipment is based on L-3 Link’s “RealitySeven” simulation architecture. The full-flight simulator will also be equipped with L-3 Link U.K.’s eM2K motion system. Prior to training on A350 simulators and PT trainers, pilots will undergo classroom instruction on the FMS trainers to become familiar with FMS operation and flight-plan generation. L-3 Link will also deliver two brief/debrief stations.
