Dassault Falcon Training Matters

FlightSafety Selected as Factory-Authorized Trainer for Falcon 8X

When the new flagship aircraft, the Dassault Falcon 8X, begins delivering, FlightSafety will be ready with factory-authorized pilot, maintenance and flight attendant training.

The selection of FlightSafety as its factory-authorized trainer for the Falcon 8X gives Dassault Falcon operators a choice of training for the complete range of the company’s advanced business aircraft.

“FlightSafety’s simulation engineers and courseware developers are working closely with Dassault Falcon to ensure that the full flight simulators and training programs are of the highest quality,” says Bruce Whitman, FlightSafety President and CEO. “And that they meet the specific needs of the pilots, maintenance technicians and flight attendants who will operate and support the Falcon 8X around the world.”

Two Level D Simulators
FlightSafety will initially design and manufacture two full flight simulators for the Falcon 8X. The start of training will coincide with the aircraft’s entry into service.

The simulators will be qualified to Level D and approved for training by the European Aviation Safety Agency and the United States Federal Aviation Administration. Qualification by other regulatory agencies around the world will be applied for and obtained according to Customer needs.

Advanced Simulation
The new FlightSafety FS1000 simulators built for the Falcon 8X 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 feature MATRIX, FlightSafety’s integrated training technology. MATRIX comprises DeskTop simulators for classroom instruction and Graphical Flight-deck Simulators for instructor-led and self-paced learning. It also includes SimVu, which enables pilots and instructors to review flight simulator sessions.
