Rockwell Collins’ Panorama Collimated Display has been selected by CAE for the CC-295 full-flight simulator (FFS) it is supplying for the Royal Canadian Air Force’s Fixed-Wing Search and Rescue (FWSAR) programme.

The CAE-built CC-295 FFS is part of the comprehensive training programme being established to prepare aircrew for missions in the new Airbus Defence and Space CC-295 aircraft.

The Panorama display has been designed for use on simulators requiring a wide field of view, cross-cockpit views and side-by-side training. It supports unobstructed fields of view up to and including 225° horizontal by 60° vertical, making it ideal for critical aircrew training on platforms such as the P-8, NH90 helicopter, C-130 and CH-47 Chinook.

Lee Obst, managing director, Rockwell Collins Canada, said: ‘This is a programme that helps save the lives of thousands of Canadians each year, and working with CAE and Airbus on training will be a critical component for the RCAF’s success. The configuration flexibility and enhanced realism of the Panorama display will help better prepare pilots for the new platform.’
