General Atomics AeroTec Systems (GA-ATS), a subsidiary of General Atomics Europe, has placed an order with Euramec of Hamme, Belgium for a fully-immersive flight simulator for the Dornier 228NG aircraft family. This simulator allows for a complete immersion in the virtual situation due to its closeness to reality. The simulator will be built by Euramec and delivered to GA-ATS's flight training facility in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. The Do-228 flight simulator will be certified as a flight training device to EASA FNPT-II/MCC and FTD Level standards.

“This simulator will take our flight training capabilities for the Do-228NG family to a new level,” says GA-ATS MD Erik Bollen. “Acquiring this simulator is another example of GA's ever-deepening ties with the European aerospace industry and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to working with Belgian companies to meet our supply chain needs.”

Euramec CEO Bert Buyle adds: “We are pleased to support General Atomics Europe on the development of type-specific flight training devices. We look forward to the EASA certifiable Do-228 NG flight simulator playing a role in delivering support to the safety, training and readiness of flight crews around the world.”

GA-Europe completed the acquisition of RUAG Aerospace Services on 1 March, subsequently rebranding it as General Atomics AeroTec Systems. GA-ATS is now the manufacturer and type certificate holder of the Do-228. It also provides maintenance and repair services for business aircraft and military helicopters. The Do-228 is a twin-engine, multirole light transport aircraft of which the Dornier Do-228NG is the current production version with a glass cockpit and increased performance.
