Avionics Update: Honeywell, FlightSafety bring Primus Epic to the classroom

To serve as a training aid for pilots who are about to strap into Dassault’s new Falcon 900EX with the Primus Epic EASy cockpit, Honeywell and FlightSafety plan to provide PC-based training software. FlightSafety instructors will use the software in the classroom to familiarize aviators with the modern cockpit before hands-on training in a full-flight simulator. The instructional aid, said a Honeywell spokesman, provides the same level of interaction and functionality as the real hardware in the airplane. Honeywell has developed similar software for the Primus Epic PlaneView cockpit in Gulfstream’s 550.
