Rockwell Collins has achieved US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 60 Level D qualification for its Edge Boeing 737NG Full Flight Simulator (FFS).
The simulator, delivered in April, is located at Pan Am International Flight Academy’s North American training centre in Miami.
“This qualification marks the first FAA Level D certification for our Edge system – adding to the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Level D qualification we received in November with our 737NG simulator at CTC Aviation in Southampton, UK,” explained Ken Schreder, vice-president and general manager of Simulation and Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “Both are critically important milestones as we look to further grow this part of our commercial simulation business.”
The Edge 737 FFS is part of a complete family of Edge training solutions from Rockwell Collins, based on the company’s CORE simulation architecture.
