6th July 2020 - 15:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Iran has the knowledge base to ensure domestic production of flight simulators for all aircraft operated by the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF), state-run news agencies reported on 6 July.

Speaking during a ceremony to unveil a flight simulator (pictured) for the Il-76, Brig Gen Aziz Nasirzadeh, Commander of the IRIAF, described the development as a ‘major step’, adding the IRIAF ‘experts’ produce simulators for 90% of the aircraft flown by the air force.

Mehdi Dabbagh, head of the IRIAF research centre, said that Iranian developers have produced simulators for F-7, F-4E, Su-24, and MiG-29 fighter aircraft, and a simulator for the Kosar indigenously produced fighter ‘will be manufactured in the near future’.

Nasirzadeh also said plans are in place to produce a simulator system for the Iranian-built P3F MPA.
