FlightSafety International will offer training for Pilatus PC-24 aircraft in Paris, France, its second PC-24 simulator and a second training location. Design and manufacture of the new FlightSafety FS1000 simulator for the PC-24 is underway in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Executive vice president David Davenport says: “FlightSafety and Pilatus have worked closely together to ensure owners and operators of the PC-24 receive the highest quality training and outstanding service they deserve and expect.”
The simulator will be equipped with the Honeywell Primus Apex avionics suite and will incorporate synthetic vision, CrewView and VITAL 1100. It is expected to be qualified to Level D and enter service by the end of 2019.
Training for the Pilatus PC-24 aircraft is currently offered at FlightSafety's Learning Center in Dallas, Texas, using a simulator qualified to Level D by the FAA and EASA. The company also provides training for the Pilatus PC-12 and PC-12NG in Dallas. Training for the PC-12NG will begin in Denver, Colorado, towards the end of October.
Alongside this, the company has incorporated its Dassault FalconEye CVS HUD into the Falcon 8X and Falcon 2000LXS simulators in Paris, as well as the Falcon 900LX simulator in Dallas.
“Providing the FalconEye HUD in our training programmes for the Falcon 900LX, Falcon 2000LXS, Falcon 2000S and Falcon 8X clearly demonstrates our commitment to support Dassault and to enhance the training we provide to operators of the aircraft,” says Steve Gross, senior vice president, commercial.
The course provides pilots with the information and training required to operate and take full advantage of the FalconEye CVS HUD. Ground school and simulator training addresses normal and abnormal operations, operations procedures and limitations in all phases of flight.
