FlightSafety Adds SV-PFD to G450/550 Simulator

FlightSafety International has commissioned the first Gulfstream G450/550 simulator equipped with the synthetic vision-primary flight display (SV-PFD). Specific additional training in the use of SV-PFD (which overlays a computer-generated view of the outside world on the flight displays) isn’t required by the FAA, but pilots have been asking for the chance to become familiar with the technology in the simulator. The SV-PFD software is offered as an optional upgrade of the airplanes’ Honeywell PlaneView cockpit. The interchangeable level-D simulator located at the FlightSafety learning center in Savannah, Ga., can be used for training across the full line of in-production large-cabin Gulfstream business jets.
