The Eurofighter consortium will deliver a total of 19 Full
Mission Simulators (FMS) plus Cockpit Trainer/Interactive Pilot
Stations and associated ancillary devices to the five air forces
that have ordered Eurofighter Typhoon.
In March 2006 the first Cockpit Trainer was accepted and entered
into service. Following this achievement the ASTA development
programme continued at pace leading to a new and improved software

capabilities thus enabling use on the ASTA Full Mission
The FMS has a 13 channel 360 degrees high resolution Visual
