Saudi Arabian Airlines to upgrade entire flight simulation fleet with Rockwell CollinsaEUR(tm) EPA(r)-8000 image generation system
Saudi Arabian Airlines is upgrading its entire fleet of six full-flight simulators with Rockwell Collins’ industry-leading EP®-8000 image generation system. Deliveries will begin later this year.
Rockwell Collins’ Level D certified EP-8000 features the most advanced technology for producing high-fidelity realism over large areas. By selecting the system for all of its simulators, this realism, especially for weather phenomena, airports and obstacles, will provide consistent training for pilots of Saudi Arabian Airlines.

“Our EP-8000 will play a key role in helping the flight crews make seamless transitions to real-life situations,” said LeAnn Ridgeway, vice president and general manager, Simulation and Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
Saudi Arabian Airlines will also realize lower cost of ownership through commercial off-the-shelf components and software programmable technology for all graphic rendering, and benefit from instant access to Rockwell Collins’ support infrastructure and sparing.
