Flight Safety International (FSI, Booth 2476) has been selected by Dassault Aviation as the exclusive training provider for the new Falcon 10X, the training organization announced on Tuesday. The sims will be equipped with FSI’s latest technology advancements, including Vital 1100 visual system, electric motion control and cueing, and advanced instructor operating station.
Columbus, Ohio-based FlightSafety will initially design and build two FS2500 full-flight simulators for the forthcoming Falcon flagship—one for the U.S. market and the other for Europe. However, the specific learning center locations have not yet been determined.
“Flight Safety will work closely with Dassault to provide simulator testing for aircraft development and certification, and will supply the highest-quality training for 10X pilots, maintenance technicians, and flight attendants around the world,” said FlightSafety executive v-p of sales and marketing.
Training will commence with the aircraft’s entry into service, expected in late 2025. It will incorporate FlightSafety’s Matrix, which features desktop simulators for classroom instruction, flight training devices for self-paced learning, and SimVu for reviewing flight simulator sessions.
“Our partnership with FlightSafety will complement industry-leading aircraft design with the most innovative training solutions, and ensure the highest level of readiness and efficiency in the operation of the Falcon 10X, said Jean Kayanakis,” noted Dassault Falcon senior v-p of worldwide customer service and MRO network Jean Kayanakis.
FSI currently offers more than 220 Falcon pilot courses and 100 maintenance courses via more than two dozen full-flight simulators and other training devices across the U.S., as well as at Paris Le Bourget Airport in Europe.
