FLIGHTSAFETY International (FSI) plans to begin installing its latest Vital ChromaView visual system on company-operated simulators by the end of 1995. ChromaView launch customer All Nippon Airways (ANA) is completing installation of three systems on Boeing 737 and 777 simulators, and the first training approval is imminent.
FSI plans to retrofit a Canadair Challenger 601-3A simulator at its Houston, Texas, training centre, a Gulfstream IV at Savannah, Georgia, and a Fokker 70/100 at Le Bourget, France, with the ChromaView visual by late 1995.
Boeing 777 and Gulfstream III simulators nearing completion at FSI's Simulation Systems division in Tulsa, Oklahoma, have been equipped with the ChromaView, produced by FSI's Visual Systems division in St Louis, Missouri.
ANA selected the daylight, photo-textured, ChromaView for two 777 simulators and a 737-500 machine ordered for domestic-airline subsidiary Air Nippon. The simulators were built by CAE Electronics, and have been installed at ANA training centre, at Tokyo's Haneda Airport, Japan.
