SIMUFLITE TRAINING International has put its first Bombardier Canadair Challenger 601-3A/3R simulator into service.

The CAE-built device is SimuFlite's fifteenth business-jet simulator, but is its first to be approved to US Federal Aviation Administration Level D, as well as to international Level 2 training standards.

Two more business-jet simulators are scheduled to enter service at SimuFlite's Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport training centre in 1996: a Reflectone-built Raytheon Hawker 800/1000 Level C training simulator in February and a CAE-built Level D training simulator for the Gulfstream IV-SP in April.
