Rockwell Collins’ integrated visual systems will be fitted be used by Airbus for its two new Airbus A320 full flight simulators (FFS) that will be based at its new training centers in Mexico City, Mexico. The simulators are being supplied by Lockheed Martin Commercial Flight Training
“Our integrated visual systems are proven in the most challenging training exercises, which is especially valuable for airlines whose routes take them to some of the busiest and most difficult airports in the region,” said LeAnn Ridgeway, vice president, Simulation and Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “In addition, our visual system solution delivers a significant reduction in life-cycle cost. This aligns perfectly with the ‘Training by Airbus’ strategy to ensure service and support throughout the operational life of an airline’s Airbus fleet.”
Rockwell Collins’ chose an open, scalable architecture for its integrated visual system which minimises hardware replacement over the life of the system thus generating savings for operators. The proprietary ‘Whole Earth’ environment provides high-resolution, geo-typical imagery. Operators can also choose from an expansive library of certified airport models to create high-fidelity realism for improved training benefit.
