FlightSafety International announced that its second full-flight simulator for the Sikorsky S-92 has been qualified to FAA and JAR level-D standards, following a joint evaluation at the company’s Farnborough training center southwest of of London. Training with the device began in December.

The simulator features an electric motion and control loading system, which Sikorsky said reduces downtime and produces less heat and noise than previous models. The device is equipped with FlightSafety’s most current graphics rendering software, which yields better texture and detail.

The first S-92 sim certified to level-D standards is installed at FlightSafety’s learning center in West Palm Beach, Fla., where the company also trains pilots on the S-76 and S-70. The Florida facility has five full-flight simulators.

FlightSafety said its Farnborough center will eventually house 15 full-flight simulators and train some 3,800 users per year in 27 interactive classrooms and 30 briefing rooms.
