SimCom Training Centers’ Falcon 20 and Westwind II devices have received FAA approval and statements of qualification designating them as Level C simulators.
Acquired late last year from CAE, the devices are located at SimCom’s Park South training center in Orlando, Florida. Prior to entering service with SimCom, both were updated with wide-screen visual systems, according to SimCom officials. In addition, both are scheduled to be outfitted with new instructor operating stations by summer of this year.
The Falcon 20 sim (pictured above) is capable of representing two platforms. One configuration displays the Sperry SPZ-500 flight director system and autopilot. The other set presents the Collins FD-109 and Collins AP-105. Both configurations include the UNS 1F FMS, Honeywell Mark VII EGPWS and TCAS II. Two different engine models are also available — the GE CF700-2D-2 with Aeronca CF700 thrust reversers and the Garrett TFE 731-5BR-2C with Dee-Howard TR5020 thrust reversers.
The Westwind II sim is equipped with the Collins FDS-85 and Collins APS-80. Flight management, terrain and collision avoidance is provided with the UNS 1F FMS, Honeywell Mark VII EGPWS and TCAS II. The engine model represents the Garrett TFE 731-3-1G with Grumman thrust reversers.
