FlightSafety International Introduces Its New FS1000 Full Flight Simulator

NEW YORK (April 1, 2014) – FlightSafety International introduces its new FlightSafety FS1000 full flight simulator.

“The all-new design and advances in technology incorporated into the FS1000 simulator will significantly enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the training FlightSafety and our commercial airline, government and military Customers provide.” said John Van Maren, Vice President Simulation.

“Our team of close to 600 design and manufacturing engineers and specialists developed the new FS1000 to outperform current generation flight simulators in virtually all aspects, and to offer exceptional value,” said Dr. Nidal Sammur, Director of Engineering.

FlightSafety worked with representatives from aircraft manufacturers and pilots who train at its Learning Centers to ensure that the new FS1000 simulator would exceed their requirements and offer unprecedented value and reliability. The design also benefitted from the experience gained by FlightSafety’s 1,800 instructors who provide more than one million hours of training each year to pilots from around the world. The simulator features tightly integrated computer hardware and software across subsystems which allows for more accurate and higher fidelity simulation than found in other current and previous generation simulators. It includes the latest multi-core 64-bit architecture and the supporting real-time tools.

The simulator’s new light weight and highly robust modular design offers added configuration flexibility and ease of systems integration. This will enable FlightSafety to respond quickly as new aircraft and advances in technology are introduced and will serve to increase reliability and reduce maintenance time. The completely new Instruction Operating Station has been designed to provide instructors with a highly productive and efficient work space equipped with an intuitive interface, scalable graphics, and large multi touch displays. The interior of the simulator offers close to twice the amount of interior space for flight instructors, and observers compared to previous generation simulators. The FS1000 has also been designed to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of FlightSafety’s VITAL 1100 visual system, Crewview glass mirror display, and new electric Motion Cueing System.

FlightSafety has delivered more than 1,000 visual systems and 800 flight simulators and other advanced training devices to date. This includes simulators for commercial aircraft manufactured by Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer. The simulators and visual systems are part of an integrated training system used throughout the company’s network of Learning Centers and by many other leading commercial, government and military organizations worldwide.

FlightSafety International is the world’s premier professional aviation training company and supplier of flight simulators, visual systems and displays to commercial, government and military organizations. The company provides more than a million hours of training each year to pilots, technicians and other aviation professionals from 167 countries and independent territories. FlightSafety operates the world’s largest fleet of advanced full flight simulators at Learning Centers and training locations in the United States, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Japan, South Africa, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
