NEW YORK (February 6, 2015) – FlightSafety International announces the design and manufacture of its fourth full flight simulator for the Gulfstream G650™ aircraft. It will be available at FlightSafety’s Learning Center in Wilmington, Delaware early in 2016. The first three Gulfstream G650 simulators are in service at FlightSafety’s Learning Centers in Savannah, Georgia and Long Beach, California.
“Building our fourth Gulfstream G650 simulator and installing it at our Center in Wilmington is another example of FlightSafety’s commitment to provide Customers with the conveniently located training resources they require,” said Steve Gross, Vice President Sales. “We work closely with Gulfstream to ensure that the availability of G650 training is in line with the growing demand for the aircraft, and that the courses and flight simulators reflect the exact operating characteristics of the aircraft.”
The new FlightSafety FS1000 simulator being built for the G650 will include the company’s latest innovations in technology including the VITAL 1100 visual system. The FS1000 features tightly integrated computer hardware and software across subsystems which allow for more accurate and higher fidelity simulation than found in other current and previous generation simulators. The unprecedented fidelity and levels of detail offered by the VITAL 1100 visual system significantly enhance training by providing photo-realistic, highly-detailed imagery and up to 40 million-pixel-resolution. The worldwide database incorporates the latest terrain information with geo-specific satellite images for unprecedented realism.
The Gulfstream G650 training program is taught by FlightSafety’s highly experienced and qualified instructors who have actual in-flight experience with the aircraft. It also features MATRIX, FlightSafety’s integrated training system for self-paced and instructor-led learning.
FlightSafety has been the official factory authorized training organization for Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation for more than four decades. Training for the complete line of Gulfstream aircraft is currently provided at Learning Centers in Dallas, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; Hong Kong; Long Beach, California; Savannah, Georgia; Wilmington, Delaware; and at the London Farnborough Airport in the United Kingdom. Pilot and maintenance technician training for the new Gulfstream G500™ and Gulfstream G600™ will be provided at FlightSafety’s Learning Center in Savannah, Georgia.
