FlightSafety adds European sim for PC-24
The programme utilises a new PC-24 sim with the Primus Apex avionics suite that incorporates SmartView synthetic vision system. It also features CrewView collimated glass display and the VITAL 1150 visual system.
Pilots training on the PC-24 can now choose between Paris and Dallas.

FlightSafety International is making training for the Pilatus PC-24 Super Versatile Jet available at its Paris Le Bourget Learning Center. FlightSafety also offers training for the PC-24 in Dallas, Texas.

“We are pleased to now offer training for the Pilatus PC-24 in Paris and in Dallas,” says senior VP of sals and marketing Steve Gross. “FlightSafety and Pilatus worked to ensure that our customers based in the European Union who operate under EASA regulations can benefit from Level D qualified simulator training. Our highly-qualified and experienced Instructors provide pilots who operate and support the PC-24 aircraft with a wide variety of initial, recurrent, advanced and specialty courses.”

The training programme utilises a new PC-24 simulator equipped with the Honeywell Primus Apex avionics suite that incorporates the SmartView synthetic vision system. It also features FlightSafety's latest advances in technology, including the CrewView collimated glass mirror display and VITAL 1150 visual system.

The simulator has been qualified to Level D by the United States Federal Aviation Administration, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency and the Directorate General for Civil Aviation of France.

“Receiving these qualifications demonstrates our ability to design and manufacture simulators that replicate the flying characteristics of the aircraft they represent, and meet or exceed the stringent standards of aviation regulatory agencies around the world,” concludes Gross.
