Simple question - in your opinion, how important are flight simulators for business aircraft types? What's on the market? What need to be improved?

Euramec announced a new line up of Flight Simulators for business aircraft types and further explore technologies to help operators reduce initial and recurrent training costs.  
 
“Training optimization is a major focus for all operators,” Bert Buyle, CEO Euramec says. “Recurrent training costs take up a large portion of the budget for business jet operators, due to limited availabilities of (full) flight simulators. Upcoming changes in EASA regulations allow to make use of fixed base training devices for certain recurrent training programs.  Our devices will dramatically reduce the cost of this training.”
 
“Euramec Flight Simulators are an integral part of such a highly effective Simulation Training Platform and operators express much excitement in our future proof devices.”

 
Procedure Trainers Drive Costs Down
Other than initial and recurrent pilot training, Euramec also targets to build procedure trainers to train business aircraft mechanics. Aircraft mechanics are currently sent around the world to learn particular tasks – e.g. engine start-up/shutdown – and these training costs can be significant. There is absolutely no need to make use of full flight simulators for this, a fixed base procedure trainer is adequate for this type of training.
 
The Next Logical Step
 “We deliver high-quality type-specific cockpit simulators with 230 degree wrap around visuals that matches their urgent requirement for individual training, and significantly reduces the overall cost of training in both the short and the long term.”
 
Euramec’s Business Aviation FTD platforms include a range of EASA certified Flight Training Devices (FTD) that significantly reduce training and operating costs for Business Aviation operators when compared against Full-Flight Simulators (FFS).
 
Initially the company will offer flight training devices for business jets, i.e. the Cessna Citation, as well as the Beechcraft King Air turboprop; and with the company’s focus on integrating new technologies - smart training devices for other aircraft types will follow.
 
Euramec is a fixture in the General Aviation industry with strong demand for its Diamond DA-40 and DA-42 flight simulators as well as customized cockpit trainers of other major manufacturers.
 
Recently, the company secured a federal grant to develop an Airbus A320 Flight Simulator.  The certifiable device will hit the market in 2020.
