Dublin-based Simtech Aviation has installed a new MPS 737-800 FTD-1 simulator.
The MPS FTD-1 is a full replica flight deck of the Boeing 737-800. Under EASA regulations, all but 16 hours of type rating credits can be trained on the MPS FTD-1.
Standard features include:
- Full flight deck replica
- Flight management system (simulated FMS) and full autopilot, flight director and autothrottle
- All aircraft systems (hydraulics, pneumatics, electrics etc)
- Accurate aerodynamic flight model
- Worldwide FMS navigation database including all update cycles.
Simtech, located beside Dublin Airport, will be adding a new Airline Pilot Standards (APS) course to its existing MCC/JOC course, in addition to its current range of courses available to trainee pilots.
Simtech will also be using the FTD for its simulator assessment preparation courses.
