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

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.
