Simulators to be brought under single rule

 - May 6, 2008, 9:00 AM

Technical and operational requirements for simulators and flight-training devices (FTDs) will be updated and consolidated into one new rule–FAR Part 60–if an FAA proposal is adopted. Part 60 would also require simulator and FTD providers to have an FAA-approved quality-assurance program, currently a voluntary item. Comments are due December 24. For more information, contact Edward Cook of the FAA’s National Simulator Program in Georgia at (404) 305-6100.
