FlightSafety International has begun offering European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA)-qualified initial and recurrent training on the Gulfstream G500 at its Savannah, Georgia learning center, the New York-based training provider announced yesterday. “We are committed to providing Gulfstream G500 operators around the world with comprehensive training programs that meet their specific regulatory requirements,” FlightSafety senior v-p of operations Dann Runik said.
Equipment used to provide the training includes two FlightSafety FS1000 full-motion simulators, three new advanced graphical flight-deck simulators that have been qualified by EASA as Level 1 flight training devices (FTD), and classrooms that feature an interactive Matrix cockpit. The FTDs include a visual system, HUD/EVS, and sidestick controller for enhanced scenario-based training.
For more than 40 years, FlightSafety has been the factory-authorized training organization for Gulfstream Aerospace, with nearly 30 full-flight Gulfstream simulators and other training devices and equipment. In addition to Savannah, Gulfstream training is offered at FlightSafety's learning centers in Dallas; Long Beach, California; Wilmington, Delaware; Hong Kong; and London Farnborough Airport.
