The EP-800 is a liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) projection system. Turkish Airlines will deploy the system across its nine flight simulators. 
“The learning experience gained by trainees through the high-fidelity realism of this state-of-the-art graphic system is invaluable and Turkish Airlines pilots will be better prepared for real-life situations,” said LeAnn Ridgeway, vice president and general manager, simulation and training solutions for Rockwell Collins.

EP-8000 has achieved Level D certification from several civil aviation regulatory authorities, according to Rockwell Collins.
