We can review your flight simulator documentation, and give you a written report (including recommendations) on our findings:
Review requests for tender
Review requests for tender.
Do you understand what you want your simulator to do?
Does the device you are going to receive meet your demands?
And does your RFT properly reflect your requirement?
Evaluate and rank tender responses.
Does each tender offer a current state-of-the-art solution?
Does a tender offer (and quote) for elements you don’t need?
Evaluate the proposed data-set
Evaluate the proposed data-set.
Is the source of the data likely to be acceptable to the Regulatory Authority?
Is it a valid set and is it presented in a useable manner?
Does it reflect your operational needs? You don’t want to have data only for 40-flap landings if your crews always use 50 flap.
Review data collection plans
Review data collection plans (for situations where you need to conduct data-gathering flights to acquire or supplement the data needed to model the simulator).
- Does the plan cover all necessary test points? Is the spread of weight/CG/configuration/speed/altitude adequate? Is there proper redundancy of test points?
- Does the flight test crew understand the special requirements of simulator data-gathering? It isn’t the same as conventional flight testing.
Evaluate the proposed ATG/IQTG
Evaluate the proposed ATG/IQTG.
Is there a full set of valid tests?
Is the reference data for the tests the same as the approved data? (Sounds obvious, but we find differences).
Simulinc has conducted the Initial Accreditation/Evaluation of the Australian and NZ Defence Force Flight Simulators. These include:
Full Flight Simulators;
B707, C130H, C130J, P3C, B737 Wedgetail, S70A-9 Black Hawk Helicopter, ARH Tiger Helicopter, MRH-90 Taipan Helicopter,
MH-60 Romeo, EC 135, Sh-2 Sea Sprite Helicopter.
Flight Training Devices;
ARH Tiger Helicopter, F/A-18F Super Hornet, Hawk, T6-C.
Simulinc can now add two more Initial Evaluations to their number. The NZDF SH-2G(I) Sea Sprite FMFS and the NZDF T-6C Texan FTD.
Simulinc continues to ensure the ongoing compliance of ADF devices through the Recurrent Checking process.
REVIEW FLIGHT SIMULATOR PROOF-OF-TEST RESULTS
Review flight simulator proof-of-test results before submission to the Regulatory Authority.
Are there discrepancies in initial conditions or procedures? If so, results which appear to be within tolerance will not be accepted as a pass.
If there is a test which cannot be brought within tolerance, are there grounds to seek a waiver and/or expansion of the tolerance? If so, we can help present your case.
