FlightSafety Opens Cessna Citation CJ3+/M2 Gen 2 Sim in Farnborough

New Convertible Full-Flight Sim Enhances Training Options in UK

Textron Aviation announced expanded support for its business jet customers in Europe, adding a couple new full-flight simulators to the FlightSafety International campus in Farnborough, England.

The new sims will cover the Citation CJ3+ and Cessna Citation M2 Gen2 models with a convertible system, allowing customers to train on a greater variety of modern Citation aircraft. The new sim features as many true-to-life cockpit parts as possible, with a base of 42"-stroke actuators to grant realistic movement outside the capsule. The suite even comes equipped with genuine G3000 avionics, maintaining the same exact work flows pilots will enjoy when they graduate to the flight deck for real.

“Our customers rely on us to design and deliver the best aviation experience, and that includes supporting them throughout their entire aircraft ownership journey,” said Duncan Van De Velde, vice president, Sales, Europe. “We are pleased to share this new training option for customers in Europe who trust Cessna Citations to fulfill their missions.”

“We are excited to expand our extensive Cessna Citation training network into the region. Our partnership with Textron Aviation and TRU will provide a high-fidelity training device and enable us to deliver a high-quality training experience to our mutual customers,” said Brian Moore, CEO and Director of Ops at FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training.

“Pilot training is critical to our industry’s success,” said Jerry Messaris, vice president and general manager of TRU Simulation. Their REALCue system was essential in creating the right level of mobility needed to emulate a real Citation jet. “We’re pleased to provide a world-class training device to compliment the legendary Cessna Citation lineup.”
