FlightSafety International has been selected by Dassault Aviation as the exclusive training provider for the entry into service of the Falcon 10X aircraft.
FlightSafety will initially design and manufacture two full-flight simulators for the Falcon 10X, one located in the US and a second in Europe. Specific FlightSafety learning centres will be determined at a future date.
“FlightSafety is excited to extend its 50 year partnership with Dassault to become the original equipment manufacturer authorised training provider for the Falcon 10X,” says EVP of sales and marketing Nate Speiser. “The premium experience, performance and quality of the Falcon 10X and FlightSafety's industry-leading training are a perfect match. FlightSafety will work closely with Dassault to provide simulator testing for aircraft development and certification, and upon aircraft launch will provide the highest quality training for 10X pilots, maintenance technicians and flight attendants around the world.”
The new FlightSafety FS2500 simulators built for the Falcon 10X will be equipped with the company's latest advancements in technology. They include the VITAL 1100 visual system, electric motion control and cueing, and advanced instructor operating station.
The training will coincide with the aircraft's entry into service and will feature MATRIX integrated training technology that features desktop simulators for classroom instruction and flight training device simulators for instructor-led and self-paced learning. It also includes SimVu which enables pilots and instructors to review flight simulator sessions.
“The Falcon 10X will feature unprecedented aircraft technology and performance,” adds Dassault SVP, worldwide customer service and MRO network Jean Kayanakis. “Our partnership with FlightSafety will complement industry-leading aircraft design with the most innovative training solutions and ensure the highest level of readiness and efficiency in the operation of the Falcon 10X.”
FlightSafety provides training for Falcon aircraft using a fleet of over 24 full flight simulators and other advanced training devices at its learning centres in Dallas and Houston, Texas; Teterboro, New Jersey; Wilmington, Delaware; and at Paris-Le Bourget airport in France. FlightSafety offers more than 220 Falcon pilot courses and 100 Falcon maintenance courses.
