Avionics Upgraded in Gulfstream G280 Simulator
Both Gulfstream G280 simulators in Dallas now reflect the latest Rockwell Collins Block 3.6 software update. The newest simulator, installed in August 2015, came equipped with the avionics update. The original simulator was upgraded to match in Fall 2015.
FlightSafety worked closely with Gulfstream to complete the installations.

- Display unit modifications add window size options, vertical situation display, world view display and new memorized configurations.
- Synthetic Vision System emphasizes symbology comparable to the head-up display.
- New autospeed functionality includes association with vertical navigation.
- Flight Management System performance database emphasizes takeoff and landing performance, vertical navigation, obstacle climb performance, constant speed targets and equal time points.
