FlightSafety International’s new full-flight simulator for the Gulfstream G500 has received interim Level C qualification from the FAA.

A second simulator, which will be interchangeable between the G500 and G600, will be qualified following aircraft certification.

Pilot and maintenance technician training will then begin using both simulators at FlightSafety’s Learning Center in Savannah, Georgia.

These are the first business jet simulators equipped with FlightSafety’s CrewView collimated glass mirror display, which, the company says, provides far superior distortion-free optical performance with greater clarity, sharpness and brightness. The simulator also features FlightSafety’s VITAL 1100 visual system.

The Gulfstream G500 and G600 training programs will also feature new Matrix integrated training system devices including advanced technology classroom workstations, Graphical Flight-Deck simulators and FAA Level 4 qualified flight training devices.
