Airbus’ initial A350 XWB full-flight simulator – located at the company’s Flight Training Centre in Toulouse – is nearing the start-up of training operations with airline flight crews.
Installed several months ago, this training device has been fine-tuned using data from the A350 XWB’s flight tests and is getting ready for its qualification process with aviation authorities this summer.
Based on a CAE Series 7000 simulator and equipped with the latest visual system, the A350 XWB full-flight simulator is the Training Centre’s first such device to be fitted with a full electrical motion system – which delivers the same or improved performance compared to a hydraulic system while providing energy savings and environmental benefits.
