SSJ100 FFS arrives for installation at SJI’s Venice training centre

Venice, Italy – December 4th, 2012

A new Full Flight Simulator (FFS) for training on the SSJ100 aircraft arrived for installation at the SuperJet International (SJI) Training Centre in Venice (Italy), close to the Marco Polo International airport.

The SSJ100 simulator, produced by L3 Communications, formerly Thales, fully replicates the aircraft cockpit with state-of-the-art visual and motion systems, enabling pilots to achieve the SSJ100 Type Rating training without using the real aircraft.

The installation will last around 30 days and will be followed by an extensive phase of on-site testing. The simulator will be submitted for the final approval of the EASA STD (Synthetic Training Device) Evaluation team, to be ready for training at the beginning of 2013.
