FlightSafety International's new Orlando learning
center has received the FAA's Level "D" certification for its
Cessna Citation Bravo full-flight simulator. The simulator is
already in customer service.
The Orlando Center is now officially open, with the first pilot
training taking place this week. The center's 02 full-flight
simulator will enter service next week and a Citation Encore
simulator will follow next month. A Citation Excel simulator will
be introduced in the Spring.
The Orlando Center received its FAA part 142
training authority at the beginning of this month. All the new
center's training equipment will be FAA Level "D" certificated.
The new full-motion simulator was designed and built by
FlightSafety Simulation. The organization's manufacturing
facilities are in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Its VITAL V-9 visual system was
designed and built by the FlightSafety Visual Systems Division in
St. Louis, Missouri.
Other Citation simulators are located at the FlightSafety Learning
Centers in Wichita, Kansas; Toledo, Ohio; Long Beach, California;
Paris, France; San Antonio, Texas; Vero Beach, Florida; and
