Flight Simulation – Integrated Learning

MATRIX Integrated Learning

FlightSafety’s integrated learning system – MATRIX – brings the realities of the Level D simulator experience into the classroom and to other training devices. MATRIX consists of the DeskTop Simulator, Integrated Courseware and Graphical Flight-deck Simulator. This innovative suite of flight training tools features shared applications and graphics. By drawing on the same powerful software that drives our Level D full flight simulators, MATRIX creates a consistent progression of training suitable for the most rigorous proficiency demands.

DeskTop Simulator
The DeskTop Simulator can be used for instructor-led or self-paced instruction. It is an interactive PC-based training system used to demonstrate and learn the function and control of aircraft systems. It provides an interactive representation of the cockpit displayed on multiple touch- screen monitors. This enables the pilot or technician to monitor or execute all the functions that would be performed in an aircraft.

Graphical Flight-deck Simulator
The Graphical Flight-deck Simulator provides an interactive representation of the cockpit displayed on multiple touch-screen monitors. This allows the user to monitor or carry out virtually all the functions that would be performed in the aircraft. System schematics and flows are illustrated through animated graphics. An instructor operating station with the same appearance provides control of the Graphical Flight-deck Simulator, just as on our full flight simulators.

SimVu Debriefing

Our PC-based, SimVu debriefing system maximizes training efficiency with remarkable new perspective and value. It captures data from simulator sessions to create a layered visual debriefing. The large interactive, super-high-resolution monitor displays the complete training experience from multiple points of view, showing exactly what happened inside and outside thecockpit – from airspeed, altitude, aircraftorientation and engine performance to an exterior view of the animated flight path, destination airport and more. This allows immediate reinforcement of training lessons and gives pilots and instructors a chance to identify areas for special emphasis. This includes small, but important, irregularities that may have been missed during flight.

Watch on synchronized screens as SimVu replicates a simulation session on an animated instrument panel while a 3-D display shows the aircraft’s response to commands. Replay simulator sessions in fast, slow, single-step or at various speeds including real time. Follow cockpit instrumentation, graphs, electronic Jeppesen charts and digital audio and video. Optionally access other types of geo-referenced charts.
