SINGAPORE, 16 April 2013. Officials at The Boeing Company have selected Mechtronix, a Canadian-based flight simulator company, to build and install a new Boeing 737NG full flight simulator (FFS) level D for the company’s sophisticated training campus in Singapore.
The new Mechtronix FFS X will simulate the Boeing 737-800W, 737-800W SFP, 737-800W BBJ, and 737-700W aircraft configurations for training, starting in the second quarter of 2014.
The simulation and training solution employs an electric/pneumatic motion system and features the Mechtronix 200x40-degree field of view (FoV) visual display and Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) projectors.
The Mechtronix FFS X will be installed in Singapore, a booming economic center, and will serve the growing Next-Generation 737 flight training needs in the Asia-Pacific region.
"The FFS X combines the highest reliability standards with the most cost-efficient operations and maintenance requirements in the industry," says George Karam, vice president, Mechtronix.
