FlightSafety International and Pilatus announce that training for the new PC-24 Super Versatile Jet has begun at FlightSafety’s Learning Center in Dallas, Texas.

“We are pleased to announce the start of training for the new Pilatus PC-24 aircraft in Dallas,” said David Davenport, Executive Vice President. “FlightSafety and Pilatus worked closely together to ensure owners and operators of the PC-24 receive the highest quality training and outstanding service they deserve and expect.”

The Pilatus PC-24 simulator was recently qualified and approved for training by the European Aviation Safety Agency. Qualification by the United States Federal Aviation Administration occurred in December 2017.

“Receiving EASA and FAA qualification demonstrates our ability to design and manufacture simulators that replicate the flying characteristics of the aircraft they represent, and meet or exceed the stringent standards of aviation regulatory agencies around the world.” added Davenport.

Pilots and maintenance technicians who operate and support the Pilatus PC-24 benefit from the highest level of fidelity, quality, and reliability this new FlightSafety FS1000 simulator provides. It is equipped with the latest advances in technology including the VITAL 1100 visual system, electric motion and control loading, and new Instructor Operating Station.

FlightSafety’s two Learning Centers in Dallas are equipped with 25 full flight simulators. They are used to provide training for business and commercial aircraft manufactured by Airbus Helicopters, Bell Helicopter, Bombardier, Embraer, Dassault, Gulfstream, and Pilatus.

FlightSafety International is the world’s premier professional aviation training company and supplier of flight simulators, visual systems and displays to commercial, government and military organizations. The company provides more than 1.4 million hours of training each year to pilots, technicians and other aviation professionals from 167 countries and independent territories.
