Rockwell Collins has been selected by Turkish Airlines to provide its EP-8100 visual system for the airline’s Boeing Next Generation 737, Airbus A320 and Airbus A330 full flight simulators. The agreement includes the option for additional visual system upgrades for legacy platforms.
“This agreement marks a first for Turkish Airlines, as it brings the highly realistic capabilities of our newest EP-8100 visual system and laser illuminated projection system to its training operations,” said LeAnn Ridgeway, vice president and general manager, Simulation and Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
“We’re pleased to receive the Rockwell Collins’ EP-8100 visual system for our Boeing Next Generation 737, A320 and Airbus A330 full-flight simulators. We believe that this system will improve the efficiency of our existing flight training capabilities,” said Levent Konukcçu, senior vice president, Investment Management for Turkish Airlines.
The EP-8100’s open, scalable architecture makes it possible to add new features and enhancements throughout the life of the system. By maintaining control over the hardware portion of the image generator, it keeps hardware replacement costs manageable over the life of the system.
The Rockwell Collins visual system raises the bar for realistic and affordable pilot training. The seamlessly integrated combination of the new laser-phosphor projectors with the EP-8100 image generator offers unmatched performance, which meets or exceeds all current worldwide regulatory commercial flight training requirements.
