Polish C295 FFS enters service
The Polish Air Force has accepted into service a CAE-built C295 full-flight simulator (FFS) at the 8th Air Base Krakow-Balice in Poland, CAE announced on 31 October.
The Polish Air Force operates a fleet of 16 C295 aircraft for transport operations.
Developed in cooperation with Airbus Defence and Space, the C295 FFS is equivalent to Level D, the highest qualification for flight simulators.
The CAE 7000 series C295 FFS includes the CAE True six degree-of-freedom electric motion system, high-fidelity CAE Medallion-6000 visual system and computer-generated forces tactical environment.
The FFS features the Open Geospatial Consortium Common Database architecture. This software and standardisation, which is used on the SW-4 helicopter simulator and M-346 training systems, is expected to enhance synthetic environment database re-use and interoperability across the Polish armed forces.
CAE has also provided database management, debriefing and tactical scenario development stations, and will provide on-site maintenance and support services over the next two years on the C295 FFS.
