General Overview :

  • The custom built Simulator is a tool that allows for training and maintaining proficiency under VMC, simulated IMC and VFR and IFR conditions without the use of the actual aircraft.
  • The Simulator accurately resembles the cockpit, instrumentation, caution system and flight controls. The visual database will encompass the entire country of Bangladesh (fly around world +70°/-70° latitude).
  • The Simulator incorporates an Instructor Operating Station (IOS) which is mounted on a swivel allowing the instructor to sit behind the left or right seats or in the cockpit with the trainee. The IOS is controlled by a wireless keyboard, wired keypad, touch-screen or both. Using the keyboard or keypad, the Simulator can be controlled by the instructor or by a solo pilot.



Instructor Operator Features :

  • Entire cockpit and visual scene can be viewed from IOS.
  • Controllable via touch-screen monitor or a handheld keypad
  • Instructor can make inputs from IOS :
        a. Real time mission parameters which affect aircraft performance, i.e. weight and balance
        b. Training mission parameters such as departure airport, time of day, etc
        c. Environmental Conditions
        d. Malfunctions
        e. Record/Playback
