French Air Force Chooses Rockwell Collins for Newest FOMEDEC Program
The French Air Force has begun the FOMEDEC, the beginning of a training program. Used to train pilots using a Pilatus PC-21 simulators the French Force have acquired Rockwell Collins to provide an essential part of the of the training. The partnership will require for Rockwell Collins to provide their state of the art newly innovative display system for their Pilatus PC-21 simulators.
The PC-21 is a smaller sized aircraft with a single turboprop with a tandem cockpit equipped with a low wing swept monoplane.
Rockwell Collins has been placed in charge developing two Spectra View Display Systems (VDS) in the Salt Lake City area.
They have come to an understanding of a subcontract that will have Rockwell Collins and CAE.
Other procedures are to be completed in Utah and finished at CAE facility in Montreal. Rockwell Collins will not only provide the visual display but will also be available for training for the display. Rockwell’s wide variety of departments and surplus will allow for there to be spares provided for the entire service of the training.
Rockwell continues to provide worldwide aircrafts with their requirements as needed. Building their name to their maximum potential is their goal to be found in many places worldwide.
One of the most important things pilots need to know is their surrounds to be able to maneuver accordingly. With the help of mirrors and censor’s pilots are able look and see what is in front of them but may still have a hard time knowing what is coming at them. The VDS is supposed to show better display system to the operator about the aircraft whereabouts.
