Poland's ETC-PZL Aerospace Industries expects to complete the modernisation of its full-flight simulator for the PZL-Mielec I-22 Iryda military trainer by mid-September. At the same time, the I-22 is being upgraded to the revamped M-96 standard for the Iryda. The simulator has been located at the Polish Military Institute of Aviation Medicine since completion in 1989. It uses the front fuselage and cockpit of the prototype I-22. Upgrades include a new Silicon Graphics image generator, 150 x 30í visual system, navigation instruments and motion platform feedback control system.
