FlightSafety International’s second Gulfstream G280 simulator received FAA level-D approval, the company announced today. Both full-motion simulators are located at FlightSafety’s Dallas learning center.
The FS1000 simulator built for the G280 includes the company’s Vital 1100 visual system, electric motion cueing and new instructor operating station. It features more accurate and higher fidelity simulation than that found in other current- and previous-generation simulators, FlightSafety said.
Meanwhile, the flight training provider’s fourth Gulfstream G650 simulator is scheduled to enter service at its Wilmington, Del. center early next year. In addition, the first simulators for the new Gulfstream G500 and G600 will be available at its Savannah, Ga. learning center as the aircraft enter service in 2017 and 2018, respectively.
Training for Gulfstream aircraft is available at FlightSafety learning centers in Dallas; Columbus, Ohio; Hong Kong; Long Beach, Calif.; Savannah; Wilmington; and at London Farnborough Airport in the UK. The company has a total of 32 full-motion Gulfstream simulators scattered at these locations.
