NEW YORK (April 1, 2014) – FlightSafety International announces that its first Airbus A350 full flight simulator is nearing completion. The simulator will be ready for delivery by the end of 2014.

The A350 simulator will be equipped with dual HUD and dual ISIS. Other equipment available with the simulator includes an Airbus APT+ with Thales DGWP Simulation Package, a Flight Management Systems Trainer (FMST), and FlightSafety’s SimVu flight simulator session briefing and de-briefing station.
