FlightSafety To Launch Fusion-Equipped King Air Sim

FlightSafety International is in the process of building a new full flight simulator to train King Air 350 pilots flying behind Rockwell Collins' new Pro Line Fusion avionics suite. The new Level D FS1000 simulator will be introduced at the FlightSafety Learning Center in Atlanta and is expected to enter service early next year.

The simulator will feature accurate, high fidelity simulation with tightly integrated hardware and software, the VITAL 1100 visual system and electric motion control and cueing, FlightSafety said.

King Air 350 instructors will also have new technology to play with as the system includes a multi-function instructor station with scalable graphics and multi-touch displays.

In addition to the new technologically advanced simulator, the King Air 350 program will include FlightSafety's newly introduced Operational Day Flow ground training program, which presents critical procedures and tasks according to each phase of flight in real city-pair flight scenarios.
