FlightSafety has been selected by the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia Central Operations to provide a MissionFit® Flight Training Device for use in its Pilatus PC-12NG pilot training program.

The MissionFit FTD is scheduled to enter service in July 2021 at the Royal Flying Doctor Service Central Operations in Adelaide. Due to its portability and ease of installation, the device may also be used for training at the organization’s Alice Springs facility or at other locations.

“We are honored to support the important programs the Royal Flying Doctor Service provides throughout the central corridor of Australia.” said Nathan Speiser, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “The innovative design of MissionFit will help to increase the effectiveness of its Pilatus PC-12NG training program, while providing value and added flexibility.”

This advanced technology training device will be equipped with a Synthetic Vision system, as well as Weather Radar and Terrain and Traffic Collision Avoidance Systems.

MissionFit is ideal for use in a wide variety of courses including ground school, systems integration, normal, abnormal and procedures training, general cockpit familiarization, crew coordination, flight training, and more. MissionFit can be qualified as a Level 5 FTD by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority of Australia.

MissionFit features an innovative, seamless glass display that presents a graphical representation of the PC-12NG’s flight deck. It is sensitive to movement and touch, and is uninterrupted by bezels. The device can be outfitted with flight controls, power control levers, tactile and wireless smart panels, and a visual system. Aircraft type-specific AFCS mode select panels, throttles, gear and flap handles, cursor control devices and multi-function keyboards can also be added. MissionFit is easily reconfigurable to represent a wide variety of aircraft types and can be controlled by an instructor from a smartphone, tablet or laptop.
