Gulfstream Aerospace has partnered with FlightSafety International to provide training for its new G700 business jet, which was unveiled at the 2019 NBAA convention this week. As part of the future training program, FlightSafety is designing a simulator in tandem with the development of the G700. The FS1000 flight simulator will be installed at the FlightSafety Learning Center in Savannah, Georgia, and will also be used for Gulfstream’s G700 test program. It will include the CrewView collimated glass mirror display, VITAL 1150 Visual System, electric motion cueing and advanced instructor operating station.
“We are pleased to once again be selected by Gulfstream to support the development of a new aircraft,” said FlightSafety International CEO David Davenport. “This further demonstrates the trust and confidence Gulfstream has in FlightSafety’s ability and commitment to provide the highest quality training and outstanding service owners and operators of the new G700 aircraft deserve and expect.”
FlightSafety International has been the official training organization for Gulfstream for more than forty years. According to the company, the start of the G700 training program is expected to line up with the aircraft’s entry into service in 2022. Initially, G700 training will be offered in Savannah with additional locations to be determined at a later date. FlightSafety currently has training facilities in Dallas, Texas; Hong Kong; Long Beach, California; Savannah, Georgia; Wilmington, Delaware; and Farnborough, England.
