737 NG FTD

Overview

The Kambill Systems Pro-Solutions B737 Ng Trainer is a replication of the actual 737 NG Flightdeck.

All Flightdeck controls, panels, knobs, switches and other components found in the actual aircraft Flghtdeck are replicated in size, look, feel and functionality in the device. In addition to hardware, the aircraft systems and avionics are simulated in great detail to ensure the ability to train all phases of Flight under normal, abnormal, and emergency conditions. Behind the Flightdeck is a fully enclosed instructor station with sufficient room for the instructor and an observer.
Outside and in front of the device is a massive tall curved projection screen (or Monitor Units) that the synthetic world is projected on by three high definition projectors that are mounted above the device. The result is a highly accurate Flightdeck and large scale visual system that provides immersive training environment that puts pilots in an incredibly realistic simulated environment where they can learn jetflying skills that are nearly impossible to train using aircrafts.

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Certification

The Kambill Systems Pro-Solutions Jet Trainer can be ordered and delivered for training certificable by the FAA as an Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD), by FAA as an Flight Training Device (FTD Level 4 & 5) and by FAA as an ICAO 9625 conform Flight Training Device (FTD Level 4 & 5).

 

 

Joint Aviation Authority (JAA) Certification

The Kambill Systems Pro-Solutions Jet Trainer can be ordered and delivered certificable for training by the JAA as an Basic Instrument Training Device (BITD) and for training by the JAA as an Flight Navigation Procedure Trainer Level 2 MCC Generic Type (FNPT II MCC).

Mission Capability

    Kambill Systems Pro-Solutions prides itself on providing first class customer service and support. We have incorporated several unique features into our device design to increase reliability and minimize down time. Support of software is accomplished via the internet.

    The instructor station is ergonomically laid out to ensure accessibility to the cockpit components and unobstructed observation of flight deck activity. The instructor station software allows for an intuitive manipulation of aircraft systems and failures with customizable event triggers. The instructor can trigger an event immediately, after a predetermined interval of time, airspeed, altitude, or combination of the three.

    Ground operations training can be executed in great detail as a result of highly accurate airport modeling. The airport

    scenery depicted very closely matches the actual airport being replicated, so close in fact, that actual airport diagrams can

    easily be used in training. Pilots will find runways, taxiways, buildings, jet ways, de-ice pads, hangers, etc. correctly placed.

    Runway and taxiway signs as well as airport markings are also detailed and accurate. With accurate airport modeling,

    dynamic jet ways, fuel trucks, support vehicles, pushback capability, aircraft traffic, and accurate airport signage and

    markings, rehearsal and familiarization training of a specific airport is possible, greatly increasing the transfer of learning to

    the real world.

    Flight operations training can also be executed in great detail. With systems simulation and integration, all phases of ground and flight operations, including all normal, abnormal, and emergency scenarios can be trained in detail. (Abnormal and Emergency situations included in FNPT II and FTD L5 as required by certification).

    A highly detailed and accurate global database greatly enhances the mission capability of the device. The database includes a highly detailed scenery and terrain database that reflects the actual landscape, structures, and hazards of the real world. These features are ideal for familiarization with new airports and flight plans; departure, arrival, and approach procedures; and seasonal characteristics common to their operational settings.

 

Service and Support

    Kambill Systems Pro-Solutions prides itself on providing first class customer service and support. We have incorporated several unique features into our device design to increase reliability and minimize down time. Support of software is accomplished via the internet.

    The vast majority of hardware components found in the device are modular plug and play, requiring no more than a screwdriver to remove and re-install. This modular plug and play design of hardware components in most cases completely eliminates the need for a technician from Kambill Systems Pro-Solutions to be on site to service the unit. If a component fails or malfunctions, the component can simply be removed, shipped to Kambill Systems Pro-Solutions, serviced, returned, and then re-installed. Because we manufacture the vast majority of components ourselves, service turnaround time on components is typically no more than 72 hours as there are no outside vendors to procure parts from.
