Frasca is to supply a TBM910 Level 5 Flight Training Device (FTD) to SimCom International’s training centre in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA.
The FTD will be built in an actual aircraft cockpit. It will be equipped with a Garmin G1000Nxi flightdeck with two PFDs and one MFD.
All the Garmin’s functions are included: TAWS, weather radar, synthetic vision, traffic advisory system, ESP/SUP/EDM, and real MD302 elecronics standby instrument.
There’s also an enclosed Instructor Operator System (IOS) Cab. The FTD will include an RSI visual system with projected 220 spherical display system.
This will be the second TBM device provided to SimCom by Frasca. A TBM930 Level 5 FTD was delivered in 2017.
SimCom has its headquarters in Orlando, Florida, where it also operates two training centres and one simulator production facility. Additional training centers are located in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Humberside, United Kingdom.
