First Class Irish TRTO fully equipped for ATR Zero Flight Time
and Non Zero Flight Time Training and Checking
MONTREAL, Feb. 14 /CNW Telbec/ - Mechtronix Systems Inc., an MWC
company, a world leading manufacturer of Flight Simulation Training
Devices (FSTD), today announced that Simtech successfully qualified
their ATR 72-500 FFS X™ to Level D, the highest qualification for full
motion simulators. Initially delivered as a Level C at Simtech training
center in Dublin, the simulator was recently upgraded to gain Level D
qualification and full Zero Flight Time training and checking
capabilities. After careful and extensive evaluation by the Irish
Aviation Authorities, IAA, the unit successfully obtained JAR-FSTD A
FFS Level D qualification.
"We are delighted with the Level D upgrade of our ATR FFS which was easy
and quick to implement thanks to Mechtronix' forward-thinking and
flexible architecture that did not require any hardware changes," said
Mr. Fergal Keogh, CEO at Simtech. "Our FFS primarily serves Aer Arann's
training needs who commit to a certain number of hours meanwhile the
remaining hours are available to operators and training organizations
looking for ATR simulator time. Our full motion simulator represents
the latest in simulation technology and we are amazed with the realism
of the cockpit environment and the visuals. Pilots in training take
great pleasure in flying our Mechtronix simulator!"
"We would like to congratulate Simtech for the successful Level D
upgrade which they obtained for their simulator and we are happy that
our far-reaching technology enabled an upgrade that was as easy as one,
two, three; Mechtronix engineering team continue earning their wings
when it comes to building next generation simulators exceeding current
regulatory standards", added Mechtronix president, Xavier Hervé.
"Mechtronix today holds a paramount position on the ATR global
commercial aviation training scene; the Simtech simulator, first ATR
FFS installed in Ireland and the -600 FFT X™ under development for the
OEM speak for themselves."
The ATR 72 FFS X™ shows the highest Level D fidelity via a collimated
visual system and a RSI Image Generator. The simulator is equipped with
a MOOG 6 degrees of freedom electric motion system.
