Diamond Aircraft has responded to an increased need for Multi Crew Coordination (MCC) training by developing an MCC add-on for its latest DA42-VI flight simulator.

Customers worldwide can now benefit from an approved Diamond FNPT II-MCC simulator complementing Diamond's all-in-one solution for flight training including single engine piston (DA40 NG) and multi engine piston (DA42-VI) trainers from one supplier.

Diamond's flight training devices are modelled after the DA40 and the DA42 aircraft and are the only training devices for the DA40/DA42 fleet available on the market that are based on an approved Diamond data package with the MCC training option. Designed both for basic and advanced instrument, navigation and procedural training, they are perfectly suited for instruction, check flights, screening purposes and skill proficiency tests and help to further increase the efficiency of a flight school's training syllabus, saving time and money.

Flight schools can save time and money with the convertible DA40/42 MCC FNPT II simulator from Diamond Aircraft. All-in-one training on just one device (DA40, DA42, MCC) increases cost-efficiency, reduces transition time from simulator to aircraft (cockpit environment is identical) and increases training efficiency as students can fully concentrate on their Multi Crew Coordination tasks without re-adjusting to different instrumentation as MCC is usually trained just in simulators for larger aircraft types.

“Diamond stands for high quality products at the cutting edge of the industry,” says Diamond Aircraft Austria project and key account manager Christian Schmid. “We are proud to offer another important milestone with this MCC option in order to complement our training portfolio with an all-in-one 21st century solution. This additional application in just one device is a huge advantage for our customers.”
