Canadian simulator builder CAE has introduced the third generation of its Simfinity cockpit procedures trainer, this one adding a so-called lesson plan studio for instructors and a virtual instructor feature that lets students create self-paced lessons.The Simfinity trainer consists of a number of LCD touch-screen displays positioned to replicate the cockpit of a given aircraft model. Students can touch digitally recreated knobs, switches and levers to learn proper cockpit flows before transitioning to a full-flight simulator and, eventually, the real airplane. The device can be approved to FAA level 4 and JAA level 1 as a qualified flight training device.
