SSJ100 Full Flight Simulator in Venice achieves EASA certification
The new Full Flight Simulator (FFS) for training on the SSJ100 aircraft, installed at the SuperJet International (SJI) Training Center in Venice (Italy), has been successfully certified by EASA and it is now ready for training with the registration number IT-069. This SSJ100 FFS is the first simulator for a Russian civil aircraft that achieved the certification by the European Aviation Safety Agency EASA. This certification is closing the STD (Synthetic Training Device) Evaluation Team (SET) process for the development of the device, which has seen the joint participation of EASA, the training provider SuperJet International, the aircraft manufacturer Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company and the simulator manufacturer L3. This simulator, which arrived in Venice for installation last December, was submitted to an extensive phase of on-site testing and finally to the approval of the EASA SET, which has confirmed the compliance of the device with the level D certification’s requirements, in accordance with EASA-FSTD A. The FFS will provide SSJ100 customers with type rating courses as well as recurrent training. Interjet pilots will be the first to start training in Venice on the new simulator at the end of February. 6 pilots and 4 technicians have already started the ground course managed by SuperJet International’s instructors.
