FlightSafety International has added a new Cessna Citation Latitude level-D flight simulator to its facility in the company’s Learning Center in Columbus, Ohio. This simulator is FlightSafety’s second Latitude sim, the first having been added in the company’s facility near the Cessna Aircraft headquarters in Wichita, Kansas.

In addition to the level-D simulator qualification, the FAA signed off the Citation Latitude FS1000 simulator for advanced Upset Prevention and Recovery Training capabilities.

“This is the first time that a new simulator and an expanded aerodynamic model of this type have been evaluated and qualified simultaneously,” said John Van Maren, FlightSafety’s vice president of simulation.

The Citation Latitude FS1000 simulator includes FlightSafety’s Vital 1100 visual system and a new instructor station, which features large multi-touch displays.
