Emirates academy opts for TRU simulators

Posted 16 November 2017 · Add Comment

Emirates Flight Training Academy has signed an agreement with TRU Simulation + Training to supply six new flight simulators (FSTDs) with mini-motion systems for the academy. The agreement was signed during the Dubai Air Show in the presence of HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman and chief executive of Emirates Airline .

 

As launch customer, the Emirates Flight Training Academy will receive these six mini-motion flight simulation training devices, which are the first of their kind in the global aviation industry and mark a new product line and class of simulators for TRU. Three of the devices will be configured as Cirrus SR22 G6 FNPT2 and three as Embraer Phenom 100EV FTD Level II/MCC.

“The Emirates Flight Training Academy is committed to harnessing the latest in aviation technology to provide an immersive, engaging and more realistic training experience for our cadets,” said Adel Al Redha, Emirates’ executive vice president and chief operations officer. “We’ve invested in some of the most advanced flight training aircraft for our cadets, and investing in an innovative and robust training platform for flight simulation is the next logical step,” he added.

Ian Walsh, TRU President & CEO, said: “From ab initio devices to simulators for their larger aircraft that serve the air transport market, TRU looks forward to a long-term partnership in providing a total training solution to the Emirates Flight Training Academy. We’re confident that the fidelity of our SR-22 and P100EV devices will provide a superior training environment for the students.”

The Emirates Flight Training Academy is designed to be one of the most advanced ab initio pilot training facilities in the world. The Academy features cutting edge classroom technology combined with a modern fleet of 27 training aircraft to deliver effective training to cadets. With the new mini full motion simulators provided by TRU, the Academy will be able to provide the most realistic training platform to cadets allowing them to consolidate and reinforce their learning. The training will also surpass typical qualification levels of lower level devices before the cadets earn their wings on the Academy’s fleet of 22 Cirrus SR22 G6 single-engine piston and five Embraer Phenom 100EV very light jet aircraft.

The Academy worked closely with TRU, the aircraft and the avionics manufacturers during the development of the mini-motion FSTDs to create and qualify a hybrid device that uniquely serves the training needs of aspiring airline cadets. The simulators are built on TRU’s ODYSSEY 7 technology which brings a new level of realism to fixed wing aircraft through a state-of-the-art mini-motion system. The fidelity demonstrated by this new technology allows cadets to experience flight cues, which are vital as they develop their sense-based knowledge foundation on how to respond to real life scenarios. The simulators will be installed at the Academy in 2018.
 

The agreement for new simulators was signed during the Dubai Air Show , by Adel Al Redha, Emirates’ executive vice president and chief operations officer and James Takats, senior vice president, Global Simulation and Training Strategy, Textron Inc. in the presence of Emirates chairman Sheikh Ahmed
