Aeroflot puts into operation the full flight simulator (FFS) for Sukhoi Superjet 100.
Aeroflot FFS SSJ-100 was jointly developed by L3 (formerly Thales Training & Simulation) and Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC). This latest generation «Reality 7» FFS allows a real time training for SSJ 100 pilots during all stages of flight in normal conditions and in emergency situations. The simulator is equipped with a modern electro-hydraulic movement system, visualization system with LCOS-projection devices and an instructor workstation with improved ergonomics.
Currently there are ten SSJ 100 airplanes in Aeroflot fleet. With the new FFS SSJ-100 in service the air company’s Air Personnel Training Center will enable Aeroflot pilots to master their flying skills, contributing greatly to the increase of their training quality level.
Aeroflot simulator complex consists of a wide choice of flight simulators: FFS A320 Series 5000, FFS A320 Series 7000, FFS IL96-300, FNPT DA-42, MFTD A320, CHT IL
In the end of March 2013 Aeroflot put in operation the full flight simulator for Airbus A330 (the first in Russia) and in the nearest future Aeroflot is planning to expand its simulator complex with FFS MC-21, FFS A350 and FFS B787.
