Textron Aviation support for business jet customers in Europe expands with addition of a new Cessna Citation CJ3+/Cessna Citation M2 Gen2 Convertible Full-Flight Simulator in the region. New simulator is scheduled to be ready for training at FlightSafety International’s Farnborough, England Learning Center in January 2025. Equipped with the latest Garmin G3000 avionics, the simulator features real aircraft parts throughout the cockpit, ensuring an accurate representation of the aircraft. TRU’s design incorporates its third-generation control loading system that produces a highly realistic flight experience.

Brian Moore, CEO and Director of Operations, FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training, said: “We are excited to expand our extensive Cessna Citation training network into the region. Our partnership with Textron Aviation and TRU will provide a high-fidelity training device and enable us to deliver a high-quality training experience to our mutual customers.” 

Duncan Van De Velde, vice president, Sales, Europe, commented: “Our customers rely on us to design and deliver the best aviation experience, and that includes supporting them throughout their entire aircraft ownership journey. We are pleased to share this new training option for customers in Europe who trust Cessna Citations to fulfill their missions.”

Jerry Messaris, vice president and general manager, TRU Simulation + Training, stated: “Pilot training is critical to our industry’s success. We’re pleased to provide a world-class training device to compliment the legendary Cessna Citation lineup.”

The full-flight motion of the simulator integrates TRU’s REALCue system that uses an electric motion base with 42-inch-stroke actuators. The visual system is equipped with FlightSafety’s VITAL 1150 Image Generation system, a large array of high-resolution airfield models and high-definition projectors on a 200×40 degree display, creating an immersive training environment. TRU built the simulator using its latest frame design, which supports configurable seating and IOS arrangement and improved quick, easy access to internal equipment for device maintenance.
