CAE can now offer Extended Envelope and Adverse Weather Training with its 7000XR Series Airbus A320 full-flight simulator (FFS).
Loss of Control In-Flight (LOC-I) has been the number one cause of fatalities in commercial operations over the past decade so, Extended Envelope and Adverse Weather Training will become mandatory training in the US by March 2019.
Flight crews will train for full stalls, upset prevention and recovery training (UPRT), icing conditions, gusting crosswind landings and bounced landings.
“We are extremely proud to qualify the first FAA-approved Airbus A320 FFS for Extended Envelope and Adverse Weather Training,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation Training Solutions.
“This accomplishment was made possible thanks to the collaborative efforts of the FAA and our airline partners in the US, leading up to the qualification.”
