Frasca Delivers Bell 407GX Sim
Frasca International has delivered what it says is the first full-flight simulator for the Bell 407GX to Bell Helicopter's training academy. The simulator features Frasca's TruVision Global visual system with TruNVG (night vision goggle) capability, a six-axis motion system with 62-in actuators and a secondary six-axis vibration system (Frasca's TruCue). The Bell academy requested and received U.S. FAA Level B, EASA Level B full-flight simulator and EASA Level 3 flight training device approval for the unit, said the Urbana, Illinois, simulator-maker, adding that the simulator is convertible between the 407 legacy configuration and the latest GX Garmin G1000 configuration.
