MONTREAL, Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ - Danish Aviation College, a growing flight school based in Roskilde, Denmark, obtained certification for its Diamond DA42 Ascent(R) Flight Trainer(TM). The device achieved JAR-STD 3A FNPT II qualification from the Statens Luftfartsvaesen, the Civil Aviation Administration of Denmark.
The synthetic training device closely replicates the feel and function of the Diamond DA42 Twin Star featuring the Garmin G1000 integrated avionics system. It also includes autopilot and a wide visual system enabling VFR training.
On the selection of the Mechtronix simulator, Danish Aviation College's Head of Training Finn Leif Christensen mentioned: "We have known Mechtronix' trainers for more than 10 years and we have tested their consistency in quality." He added: "After an extensive evaluation of the market offering of trainers for the Diamond DA42, we valued the solution presented by Mechtronix as offering the best features/price ratio, providing a highly realistic environment for training in technically advanced aircraft."
The Ascent(R) family of trainers is offering Full Flight Simulator visual system quality to the FNPT world. In the case of the DAC FNPT, it incorporates high resolution fixed matrix projectors, with a field of view of 150 degrees on a cylindrical screen. The unit uses a RASTERflite(TM) image generator from RSI, offering advanced real time software and superior resolution and light point brightness.
Xavier Herve, President of Mechtronix Systems Inc. mentioned: "We are very excited to add the Diamond family of aircraft to the extensive list of configuration options for our FNPT trainers. In addition, together with Aerosim Technologies, we also provide desktop training solutions for TAA, covering most of the ground school training that FTO/TRTO's require for their programs."
