Rockwell Collins delivered its Edge 737 NG Full Flight Simulator (FFS) to the Pan Am International Flight Academy's North American training center in Miami, marking the U.S debut of the new system, the company announced Tuesday from the World Aviation Training Symposium in Orlando, Fla. The Edge 737 NG FFS, introduced by Rockwell Collins in 2009, is expected to achieve Level D certification by FAA next month.
"We developed our Edge full flight simulator from a clean-sheet design and have been getting outstanding feedback on its capabilities, ease of use and flexibility in creating tailored programs for the end user," said Ken Schreder, vice president and general manager of Simulation and Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins. "The delivery to Pan Am is especially important to us as we look to introduce more training centers and pilots to the advanced capabilities of this system."
Features of the system include Rockwell Collins' display and image generating technology; a configurable instructor tools suite; an open systems hardware and software architecture; and scalable, modular design.
