Singapore Airlines accepted the A380 Full Flight Simulator (FFS) following a in-plant testing.

Singapore Airlines is the launch customer for the A380, the world’s largest ever passenger aircraft.

The FFS is based on the Thales C2000X system and will be supplied with the Rolls Royce Trent 900 engine, a flight crew debrief system, a Forward facing Instructor Operating Station configuration and external taxi aid.

The simulator has been built to the Airbus defined configuration for interim Level C standard and has been supplied with the PC Based EP1000 and EP10 visual system.

Thales integrated several new innovative aircraft systems including the Aircraft Environment Surveillance System (AESS) and Network Server System (NSS).
