The following training devices are in operation at Air-Espace Flight Academy:
For its basic (and recurrent) IR training, Air-Espace operates a "Flight and Navigation Procedures Trainer (FNPT II)", designed and built by Elite Flight Simulations. The FNPT II integrates last-generation simulation technology. It uses the flight equations of our Beechcraft Baron BE-55, a control force feedback system, which reproduces flight characteristics, and is completed by an advanced Visual Display system equipped with the Swiss terrain database. Recent experience has shown that numerous students are able to easily transiton in flight to our Beechcraft Baron following the required 40 hours of FNPT II, and complete the 6 hours of Multi-Engine Class Rating and 15 hours of Instrument Rating.
Based on EASA-CAT standards, Air-Espace prides itself on offering full emergency training programs thanks to its state-of-the-art training rig. This mock-up is specifically designed to simulate various smoke and fire situations. As an added value, training includes smoke with real fire in model aircraft cabins. The mock-up is equipped with seats, a galley and a toilet, thus accurately reproducing an aircraft cabin environment. For these pratical exercises, cabin crews will have jump seats and all current emergency equipment at their disposal.
