Rockwell Collins Gets Challenger 300 Sim Nod


Rockwell Collins announced this month that its NLX subsidiary received FAA Level D qualification on the company’s Bombardier Challenger 300 Full Flight Simulator. For NLX, which was acquired by Rockwell late last year, the paperwork marks the first commercial aircraft flight simulator for Bombardier. New to the business aviation simulator market, NLX markets a wide range of training systems and technical services for many military and commercial platforms. These include the U.S. Navy’s P-3C Visual System Modifications and the Black Hawk Flight Simulator for the U.S. National Guard, in addition to the Bombardier Challenger 300 simulator.

“NLX has provided us with support during the development and certification of our Challenger 300 FAA Level D simulator and associated FTD, said Hank Blasiak, general manager of Bombardier Customer Training Services. Their flexibility and resourcefulness during a parallel dynamic aircraft development program was critical to our success.”
