Course overview

Virtual Training during COVID-19

Given these unprecedented times, we are unable to run our in-person classroom courses. As part of our commitment to supporting your learning and development in a COVID-19 environment, we are pleased to inform you that this course will now be delivered virtually using WebEx video conferencing by Cisco. This means you will still get the same level of expert, award-winning training that you expect from CAAi, but from the safety and convenience of your remote working location.

The course will be streamed live, starting at 09:00 am (UK time). Please see below for other time zones.

What is flight simulation?

Flight Simulation is the technique of using software modelling to reproduce the handling, performance and systems operation of a particular aircraft type or class. The software models typically run in “real time” and are normally integrated with a simulation of the real world environment and a functioning reproduction of the aircraft flight deck.

Course Overview

This course provides an introduction to the EU requirements governing the qualification of FSTDs and their ongoing operation. The responsibilities of the National Aviation Authority (NAA) with regard to oversight procedures and NAA standardisation are covered, as well as the requirements applicable to the operator for FSTD qualification. The course all covers all aspects of the fixed wing and rotary wing FSTD evaluation process and Compliance Monitoring System audits. All types of FSTD are covered, from the generic Flight Navigation Procedural Trainer (FNPT) through to the fully type-specific Full Flight Simulator (FFS).

Who should attend?

This course covers all aspects of FSTD operation and regulatory oversight. It is targeted at individuals and organisations that are involved in, or have an interest in FSTD design, manufacture, usage or operation, and oversight.

Key topics

This training course will include the following topics:

  • The structure and content of the EU regulations as they apply to FSTD qualification
  • NAA responsibilities and FSTD operator responsibilities
  • CMS documentation and procedures, the FSTD CMS lifecycle
  • Fixed wing and rotary aircraft FSTDs, the requirements for each type and the levels of qualification, training considerations
  • Initial, recurrent and special evaluations, the evaluation team, the conduct of an evaluation, the objective evaluation process, the subjective evaluation process
  • The structure and content of a QTG, validation tests, FSTD data sources, the Validation Data Roadmap, the Master QTG (MQTG) and MQTG approval

Course objectives

By the end of this course delegates will have an understanding of the following, through presentations and facilitated exercises, and be able to competently apply judgement against:

  • Regulatory requirements: how these govern the qualification and operation of FSTD and how to assess
  • Compliance Monitoring Systems (CMS): the essential elements of an effective CMS for FSTD operation
  • The different FSTD types and levels of qualification
  • The FSTD evaluation process
  • The content of a Qualification Test Guide (QTG)

Prerequisites

It would be beneficial for attendees to have some exposure to, or experience of the operation of Flight Simulation Training Devices.
