David Davenport, senior vice president, Flight safety International says: “The FAA Level D qualification of FlightSafety’s third Gulfstream G650 simulator clearly demonstrates our ability to design and manufacture the highest quality simulators.”

“Installing this new Gulfstream G650 simulator in Long Beach is another example of FlightSafety’s commitment to provide our Customers with the scheduling and training location flexibility they require,” Davenport adds.

Steve Gross, vice president, Sales says: “FlightSafety’s Gulfstream G650 training programs, flight simulators, and other advanced technology devices are developed in conjunction with Gulfstream Aerospace.

This is the first FlightSafety FS1000 simulator to receive FAA Level D qualification. FS1000 include the VITAL 1100 visual system, electric motion cueing, and new Instructor Operating Station.
