FlightSafety International To Build FTDs For Naval Air Warfare Center

AH-IZ And UH-1Y Devices To Be Installed At Marine Corps Station Futenma in Okinawa

FlightSafety International has been selected by the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NA WCTSD) to design and manufacture Flight Training Devices for the AH-IZ and the UH-1Y. The devices will be installed at the Marine Air Corps Station Futenma in Okinawa, Japan.

They will feature FlightSafety's latest advances in simulation technology. This includes FlightSafety VITAL 1100 Image Generators, a dome visual display with 270 x 80 degree field of view (+30 degrees up and -50 degrees down). The devices will also feature Microsoft Windows 10, advanced Cybersecurity, daily operational readiness test software as well as other computational system upgrades.

In addition, FlightSafety will modify four existing AH-lZ and UH-IY Flight Training Devices located at Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base in Southern California. The modifications to these devices, which were manufactured by FlightSafety, include a new aft entry area, Instructor Operating System position and design, a visual display dome and visual turret structure, as well as an expanded vertical Field of View and 6-axis degrees of freedom secondary motion system.

FlightSafety currently supports other important government programs. They include the KC-46 Aircrew Training System; Training Systems and Contractor Logistics Support for the KC-10; T-38 Talon Training System and Contractor Logistics Support; T-1 Jayhawk Contractor Logistics Support; T-6A Texan II Joint Primary Aircraft Training System and T­IA avionics modernization program.

FlightSafety International is the world’s premier professional aviation training company and supplier of flight simulators, visual systems and displays to commercial, government and military organizations. Over 2,000 highly qualified instructors provide more than 1.4 million hours of training each year to pilots, technicians and other aviation professionals from 167 countries and independent territories. FlightSafety operates the world’s largest fleet of advanced full-flight simulators at Learning Centers and training locations in the United States, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, India, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, South Africa and the United Kingdom.
