“FlightSafety is pleased to increase the support we provide owners and operators of King Air aircraft,” said Steve Gross, Vice President, Sales. “Building a King Air 350 simulator equipped with the Pro Line Fusion avionics system demonstrates FlightSafety’s commitment to respond to the changing needs of our Customers.”

The Level D simulator is expected to enter service early in 2016 at FlightSafety’s Learning Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Owners and operators of the King Air 350 also benefit from FlightSafety’s new Operational DayFlow training methodology. This innovative, highly customized training system, transforms ground school by presenting critical procedures and tasks according to phase of flight.

The FlightSafety FS1000 simulator being built for the King Air 350 will feature tightly integrated computer hardware and software across subsystems which allow for more accurate and higher fidelity simulation. It will be equipped with a new multi-function Instructor Operating Station designed to enhance the effectiveness of training by providing an intuitive interface, scalable graphics, and large multi touch displays. The simulator will also be equipped with FlightSafety’s VITAL 1100 visual system and electric motion control and cueing.

Training for King Air aircraft is available from FlightSafety at its Learning Centers in Atlanta, Georgia; LaGuardia airport in New York; Long Beach, California; Wichita, Kansas; and at the Farnborough airport in the United Kingdom.


The Atlanta Learning Center currently offers training for a wide variety of business aircraft. They include the Beechcraft King Air 90 Series, King Air 200, King Air B200, King Air 300, King Air 350, Bombardier Learjet 31A, Learjet 35A, Learjet 40, Learjet 40XR, Learjet 45, Learjet 45XR, Learjet 60, Cessna Citation I, Citation II, and Citation SII. The Center also provides training for regional aircraft manufactured by Bombardier and Embraer.
