FlightSafety International’s Second Gulfstream G280 Simulator Receives FAA Level D Qualification

NEW YORK (August 20, 2015) – FlightSafety International announces that its second Gulfstream G280 aircraft simulator has been qualified to Level D by the United States Federal Aviation Administration. Both simulators are located at FlightSafety’s Learning Center in Dallas, Texas.

“FlightSafety is pleased and proud to support the growing number of Gulfstream aircraft owners and operators around the world,” said David Davenport, Executive Vice President. “The Level D qualification by the FAA of the second Gulfstream G280 simulator further enhances the benefits FlightSafety offers and reinforces our commitment to provide the scheduling and training location flexibility our Customers expect and deserve.”

The FlightSafety FS1000 simulator built for the G280 is designed to enhance training and maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of FlightSafety’s latest innovations in technology. They include the VITAL 1100 visual system, electric motion cueing, and new Instructor Operating Station. 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.
