Nanshan International Flight Academy has ordered a CAAC Level D Cessna CJ1+ Full Flight Simulator (FFS) from Frasca International. The Simulator will be installed at Nanshan’s flight academy located in Longkou, China.
The Frasca FFS will fully simulate the Cessna CJ1+ business jet and will include Frasca’s advanced FFS packaging, Frasca’s Graphical Instructor Station (GISt), the Collins Proline 21 Avionics Suite, a 60 inch stroke Moog Electric Motion System, and RSI Visual Systems’ XT Series Image Generator with RSI CrossView 200 X 40 Field Of View Display System. The FFS will also include Frasca’s reinforced motion platform base and other advanced engineering and manufacturing designs and processes.
This is a significant order for Frasca and expands their strong footprint within the Chinese commercial aviation flight training community.
