Offers Comprehensive System Overview Before First Flight
L-3 Avionics Systems announced this week at NBAA 2008 the
development of a SmartDeck Computer Based Training (CBT) program
which will be available in early 2009. The program will enable new
SmartDeck system pilots to familiarize themselves with the
system’s numerous features and benefits before making their
initial flights; it was developed by Pegasus Interactive, a leading
provider of aviation training software.
"This software makes it easier for pilots to transition to
flying SmartDeck-equipped aircraft because it closely simulates
their actual flying experience," said Larry Riddle, vice president
of business development for L-3 Avionics Systems. "The software
also incorporates proven e-learning techniques to accelerate
The SmartDeck system CBT utilizes scenario-based, guided
simulation to train new pilots, a method demonstrated to deliver
higher retention rates than other electronic training formats. The
system features hands-on, visual-based training that augments the
SmartDeck Pilot’s Guide.
Pilots first go through narrated demonstrations, then apply the
concepts on a virtual SmartDeck system. Training modules are
divided by the different phases of flight and the software tracks
progress. More than 70 topics are included.
Realistic visuals, narration and simulation are key elements of
the training software, which is distributed on DVD ROM to allow for
optimum multimedia performance. The SmartDeck System’s FAA
certified software was used to produce the CBT.
