Gulfstream, Flightsafety Launch First Asian Bizjet Flight Simulator

Gulfstream G450/G550 Simulator Is Located In Newly Opened Hong Kong Learning Center

Gulfstream Aerospace and FlightSafety International on Tuesday announced the opening of a new Learning Center in Hong Kong. The center will train operators of Gulfstream G450 and G550 aircraft using a Level D-qualified full-flight simulator, the first of its kind in Asia. This training was previously held in the United States; the new Hong Kong center will allow pilots and technicians to train closer to where they are based.

Approximately 80 Gulfstream aircraft are located in Hong Kong and mainland China, with a total of 175 in Asia Pacific. Gulfstream is the market-share leader in the region, with 48 percent of large-cabin business jets.

“We’re pleased to partner with FlightSafety to offer this training opportunity for current and future operators,” said Larry Flynn, president, Gulfstream. “This is the first simulator dedicated solely for business-jet operators in Asia, and, as the market leader in the region, we’re thrilled to blaze this trail.”

The new simulator is indicative of the joint commitment Gulfstream and FlightSafety have made to support the region’s rapidly growing customer base. The number of training events FlightSafety provided to the region’s Gulfstream operators increased by 230 percent in the past five years. More than 4,000 courses were delivered in 2011, including more than 700 for pilots, maintenance technicians and other aviation professionals who operate and support Gulfstream aircraft.

The new interchangeable Gulfstream G450 and G550 simulator is equipped with the company’s latest advancements in flight simulation technology, including the VITAl X visual system and electric motion and control loading technology.

“The G450 and G550 are some of our most popular aircraft in Asia thanks to their intercontinental range, speed, reliability and comfort,” Flynn said. “The G450 can travel 8,061 km at Mach 0.80, linking Hong Kong and Moscow or Hong Kong and Perth. The G550, meanwhile, has a range of 12,501 km. It can easily take eight passengers and four crew members from Hong Kong to Honolulu or Hong Kong to Paris.”
