FSTD Evaluators' Course
This course is an essential foundation for prospective FSTD evaluators and those wishing to experience and practice the job of an evaluator or be part of an acceptance team. Not only do you get to learn from a team of experts with hands-on training, you get the benefit of their many years of experience.
To become a qualified National Aviation Authority (NAA) / EASA FSTD Inspector, requirements must be met that are set by the individual organizations. However, most NAA’s require their inspectors to have completed the TTI course, or a similar one, as part of their training towards being recognized as an inspector/evaluator. This course is also used as refresher training as the rules, standards and technology of FSTDs continually changes.
These days, the process of Evaluating and Qualifying a FSTD is common throughout the world, and although NAA regulations do vary somewhat, the evaluation process and standards are consistent. Each of our courses use one of the more common sets of regulations/standards as the core documents when teaching (EASA CS-FSTD & Parts ORA and ARA, FAA FAR Part 60, etc.). This core document is chosen according to the what the majority of the students currently use in their home environment. Please note that even though a specific set of regulations is chosen as the core document for training, time is spent throughout the course addressing the differences between all of these. Should students wish to discuss and compare their own NAA’s regulations, we will accommodate that in-class as time permits, and after-class if required.
In addition, the ICAO Doc 9625 (Manual of Criteria for the Qualification of FSTD) will be described and discussed, along with items that need to be considered to adopt these guidelines into a full set of regulations and standards..
Recognized by all good NAAs, this course aims at preparing Regulatory Authority Inspectors, and personnel of FSTD Operators, Users and Manufacturers, who are involved in, or responsible for, carrying out the Evaluation and Qualification of FSTDs.
Training is provided in the interpretation and implementation of current regulations and standards, as related to Flight Simulation Training Devices, we do not teach just what the regulatory documents say. Hands-on exercises are embedded throughout the course to make sure that students comprehend how and why evaluations and qualifications are conducted in the manner established, which means the intent of the whole process is understood, not just what is written in the documentation.
