Gulfstream Aerospace and FlightSafety International have opened a new learning centre in Hong Kong.

The centre will train operators of Gulfstream G450 and G550 aircraft using a Level D-qualified full-flight simulator.

Approximately 80 Gulfstream aircraft are located in Hong Kong and mainland China, out of a total of 175 in the Asia-Pacific region.

The new interchangeable Gulfstream G450 and G550 simulator is equipped with the company's latest advancements in flight simulation technology, including the VITAL X visual system and electric motion and control loading technology.

The G450 can travel 8,061km at mach 0.80, linking Hong Kong and Moscow or Hong Kong and Perth. The G550, meanwhile, has a range of 12,501km, said Larry Flynn, president of Gulfstream.
