by L3 Commercial Aviation on 10/02/2018

CRAWLEY, U.K., October 2, 2018 – L3 Commercial Aviation announced today that it has been selected by Qantas to provide a B787-9 RealitySeven Full Flight Simulator (FFS), which will be used for training at Qantas’ Flight Training Facility in Sydney, Australia.

“We are delighted to build on our long-standing relationship with Qantas and provide this latest device,” said Robin Glover-Faure, President of Commercial Training Solutions (CTS), which is part of L3 Commercial Aviation. “At L3, we pride ourselves not just on the quality of our devices, but also on our customer-centric approach, meaning we can offer a variety of solutions to best suit our customers’ ever-evolving needs.”

The selection of the device followed a competitive tender process and complements the two Bombardier Dash 8 Flight Training Devices (FTD) ordered from L3 earlier this year.

The FFS device will operate with L3’s latest computing architecture and features the L3 CTS B787-9 Briefing Station capability. The Briefing Station allows pilots to complete many elements of the B787-9 Preliminary Cockpit Preparation procedure outside of the FFS itself, saving valuable time usually spent inside the simulator and improving cost-efficiency as well as training capacity.
