The FlightSafety Simulation and Visual Systems team has produced the world’s first successful glass mirror displays, qualified to the highest training standards of FAA 14 CFR Part 60 Level D. Overcoming challenges of weight and ruggedness necessary to operate in the long-term training regimen for flight simulators with six-degrees-of-freedom (6-DOF) motion bases, CrewView offers a superior solution that incorporates glass for the out-the-window display. CrewView provides superior optical performance and sharper image clarity with significant advances in fidelity and field of view. CrewView fills the entire aircraft window, eliminating ground rush distortions and allowing the greatest level of effectiveness in training.
