CAE-Built Boeing 777 Sim First To Earn Level D Qualification Under Part 60 Rule

Full-Motion Device Built For Delta Air Lines

CAE announced this week a Boeing 777 full-flight simulator the company designed and manufactured for Delta Air Lines has become the world's first-ever simulator to achieve Level D certification, the highest qualification for flight simulators, under the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) new Part 60 rule.

The FAA's National Simulator Program aims to improve aviation safety through the application of regulations and standards governing the qualification of flight simulation training devices (FSTD). At the end of May, the FAA implemented more standardized and stringent qualification requirements for initial and continuing use of FSTDs under the Part 60 rule.

"We are proud to be the first sponsor in the world of a Part 60 qualified simulator," said Steve Sage, General Manager of Simulator Support for Delta Air Lines. "We are committed to the highest levels of aviation safety and to offering our pilots the highest fidelity simulation equipment for our pilot training program. This achievement is a testament to CAE's flexibility and responsiveness."

The CAE-built 7000 Series Boeing 777-300ER FFS was delivered to Delta's training center in Atlanta, GA in May and achieved the Level D qualification from the FAA on June 26.

"CAE has a long history of industry-firsts and we are extremely proud to add the first simulator qualified under the FAA's new Part 60 rule to this list," said Marc Parent, CAE's Group President, Simulation Products and Military Training & Services. "We have a long-term customer relationship with Delta and worked very closely with them over the past couple of months to ensure this simulator would meet the demanding requirements for qualification under the Part 60 rule."
