New-generation Flight Simulation Training Devices (FSTDs) are increasingly valuable in today’s complex flight training environment.

To meet this need, the COA has an extensive fleet of FAA-certified FSTDs, including a Level D Full Flight Simulator (FFS), Level 5 and 6 Flight Training Devices (FTDs), Advanced Aviation Training Devices (AATDs) and Part Task Trainers (PTTs). All FTDs include panoramic visual systems capable of displaying geo-specific scenery on a 220-degree horizontal by 60-degree vertical field-of-view spherical dome. The CRJ200 FSTD fleet includes virtual visual systems capable of providing depth perception during the taxi, take-off, approach and landing phases of flight. These sophisticated training devices enable students to master aircraft performance, practice cockpit resource management, experience aerodynamic effects, and perform a variety of high-risk flight maneuvers safely in a controlled environment.
