L-3 Link updates Lufthansa flight training A380 simulator

CRAWLEY, U.K., 28 Feb. 2013. Engineers at L-3 Link Simulation & Training (L-3 Link) in Crawley, U.K., have updated a Lufthansa Flight Training A380 Full Flight Simulator (FFS) to the latest Airbus 1.3 product baseline.

L-3 Link’s upgrades focused on the simulator’s aircraft systems, avionics, and flight aero data. The updates enable the simulator to operate at the same standard 1.3 product baseline as Lufthansa’s Airbus A380 fleet of aircraft. As a result, Luftfahrt-Bundesamt, Germany’s national civil aviation authority, has recertified the A380 FFS to support pilot training at the Lufthansa Flight Training facility in Frankfurt.

“We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to update the A380 Full Flight Simulator to match the capability of Lufthansa’s existing fleet,” says Mark Gasson, vice president of L-3 Link UK.

“Although the schedule was challenging and milestones were tight, we achieved our ready-for-training date on time with proven quality,” notes Wieland Heine, project manager and simulator development engineer of Lufthansa Flight Training. “The cooperative support from L-3 Link during this update effort has produced an optimum result.”
