Asian Aviation Training Centre Full Flight Simulators
RSI Visual Systems has recently provided L-3 Link Simulation & Training (L-3 Link) with an XT4 Visual System featuring FL35 projectors for installation and upgrade on its full flight simulators at the company’s Asian Aviation Training Centre (AATC). The projection upgrade has been made on the AATC’s ATR 42/72 Full Flight Simulator (FFS), as well as a new installation on its A330 FFS. Each of the simulators is integrated with the FL35 projector and RSI Visual Systems’ XT4 image generators.
“We are delighted that the Asian Aviation Training Centre again chose projectiondesign’s FL35 ReaLED projectors for their new upgrades. The superior picture quality, low cost of ownership and image stability further enhance the overall training experience for the pilots, as well as offering improved operation up-time and drastically reduced maintenance costs for the training centre,” said Hakon Andersen, Director of Global Simulation at Barco.
Founded in 1996, AATC is a provider of pilot, maintenance, and pushback and tow training. The centre is conveniently located near Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Thailand. L-3 Link’s ATR42/72 and A320 simulators are certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), as well as many other National Regulatory Authorities. L-3 Link’s recently installed A330 FFS and A320/A330 APT have now gained EASA Level D and FTD 1 certifications.
