Training Programs That Meet the Military’s Needs


Enhanced ATARS Vision Systems


FlightSafety integrates advanced visual systems that present highly detailed, texture-enhanced scenes in simulators used for Air Force pilots under Aircrew Training and Rehearsal Support (ATARS). Enhanced visual systems have been installed for the MC-130E Combat Talon I, MC-130H Combat Talon II, and MH-53M Pave Low helicopter simulators, and for the AC-130U Spectre gunship simulator.


Fixed-Wing Qualification Training


FlightSafety instructors deliver the Army’s Fixed-Wing Qualification course, centered on the C-12 (the military variant of the Beechcraft King Air 200), at our Dothan Learning Center near Fort Rucker, Ala.


Flight Attendant Training


Air Force flight attendants train for both safety and service at FlightSafety’s Savannah Learning Center. On-site training devices include an in-water egress trainer and a fire trainer – each designed and built with the aim of providing a realistic training environment.


HC-130P Weapons System Trainers


FlightSafety conducts training under the Air Force TSA II Omnibus Program for two HC-130P Combat Search and Rescue Weapons System Trainers for the Air Force Special Missions Command and Air Force Reserve Command. FlightSafety Simulation Systems in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, is responsible for the design and manufacture of the Trainers. They will be qualified to the Air Force equivalent of a Federal Aviation Administration Level D flight simulator.


Guns and Rescue


FlightSafety was awarded a Guns and Rescue contract in 2007 by the U.S. Air Force to modify and upgrade several WSTs, including one AC-130U, one MC-130E, two MC-130Hs, one MC-130P and two UH-60Gs. The modifications and upgrades include items such as Link-16 concurrency for training and live feeds, Link-16 courseware, incorporation of CSU-II, ROVER and M2MSA into Link-16, new IOSs, flight-deck ambient lighting and updating the 65000 Data Transfer System simulation to receive current PFPS data.


Canadian Contracted Flying Training and Support (CFTS)


FlightSafety received a contract in 2005 to design and manufacture three advanced technology aircraft simulators for the Canadian Forces Contracted Flying Training and Support Program (CFTS). Allied Wings, a consortium of Canadian companies led by Kelowna Flightcraft Limited of British Columbia, was awarded the CFTS program contract by the Canadian Government. As a sub to Atlantis Systems International of Brampton, Ontario, a member of the consortium, FlightSafety produced two full flight simulators and one Level 5 FTD training device for the Raytheon King Air C-90 and Bell Helicopter for CFTS.
