Rockwell Collins achieved FAA Part 60 Level D qualification for its Edge Boeing 737 NG Full Flight Simulator (FFS), the company announced Thursday. The simulator, delivered in April, is located at Pan Am International Flight Academy's North American training center in Miami.

"This qualification marks the first FAA Level D certification for our Edge system -- adding to the U.K. Civil Aviation Authority Level D qualification we received in November with our 737 NG simulator at CTC Aviation in Southampton, U.K.," said Ken Schreder, vice president and general manager of Simulation and Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins. "Both are critically important milestones as we look to further grow this part of our commercial simulation business."

The Edge 737 FFS is part of a family of Edge training solutions from Rockwell Collins, based on the company's CORE simulation architecture.
