Simulinc specialises in consultancy solutions for flight simulators in the military and aviation sectors.
We offer consulting services on flight simulator standards to the Australian Department of Defence (ADF), New Zealand Defence Force, Canadian Defence Force and the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), and have been approved by the Royal Australian Air Force for conducting flight simulator accreditations.
Flight simulator evaluation training
Simulinc’s flight simulator evaluation (SIMEVAL) course lasts for seven days and features discussions and lectures on aerodynamics, the purpose of aerodynamics testing in a flight simulator and the seven subsystems that comprise a flight simulator. These consist of computer, motion, visual, sound, control loading and flight deck systems, as well as an instructor operating station.
SIMEVAL courses are both CASA-approved and ADF-recognised. They are specially designed to meet customer requirements with details of FSD-1, manual of criteria for the qualification of flight simulators (MCQFS), joint aviation requirements (JAR), European aviation safety agency (EASA) and the US federal aviation administration (FAA) standards accordingly. Conducted by qualified Simulinc staff, the course is mainly intended for flight simulation training technical staff or supervisory flight crew although a flight crew background is not essential. However, we do recommend undertaking a guided pre-course aerodynamics study beforehand.
As well as consultancy services for the application of flight simulators in aviation training, we also offer a customised training course on your premises, using your simulators to match your specific training requirements.
Evaluation consultancy for flight simulator accreditation testing
Simulinc can assist with flight simulator accreditation testing by:
- Conducting the accreditation on behalf of the Australian Regulatory Authority, which requires their approval for each specific case
- Overseeing and / or participating in the testing; by being part of the team you provide for the accreditation
- Monitoring accreditation conduct as an external observer to protect your interests
Flight simulator standards for high-quality client services
Simulinc staff have produced Australian simulator standards documents and given aircraft simulation lectures at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). We have served as delegates to both the International Working Group and the working group that formulated the current flight simulator standards for Australia (Manual of Standards part 60).
