FlightSafety Expands Gulfstream Customer Training
FlightSafety International last week announced it will manufacture a fourth Gulfstream G200 aircraft simulator for use at the company’s Learning Center in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. The new equipment is expected to be available for training during the fourth quarter of 2008. The new G200 simulator will be equipped with FlightSafety’s electric motion and control loading system, which the company says "offers the highest level of aircraft fidelity, enhanced performance and numerous environmental advantages compared to previous generation devices." The G200 simulator will also be equipped with FlightSafety’s new visual system, dubbed "VITAL X." It features continuous global high-resolution satellite imagery and accurately portrays environmental conditions experienced during all phases of flight.
"We are privileged to have been Gulfstream’s factory authorized training organization since 1969. Our close working relationship with Gulfstream enables us to develop high quality training programs and locate simulators where they best serve our mutual customers,” said Bruce Whitman, president and CEO, FlightSafety International. FlightSafety currently provides professional pilot, maintenance technician and corporate cabin attendant training using its fleet of 23 Gulfstream aircraft simulators and other advanced technology training devices. The company's Dallas/Fort Worth Learning Center will have a fleet of eight full-flight Gulfstream aircraft simulators once this new G200 device enters service.
