Abbreviated course content and documentation

Course Content

This 3 day course is classroom-oriented and is a study of the Joint Aviation Requirements (JAR-FSTD)  covering the qualification of all FSTD. The study ranges from the Full Flight Simulator, through Flight Training Devices, Flight & Navigation Procedure Trainers to Other Training Devices such as Basic Instrument Training Devices.

During this phase the student is also given the opportunity to work with Qualification Test Guides (QTG) from actual FSTD and to review the requirements of a Compliance Monitoring/Quality System for FSTD, that is a part of the qualification process. Both fixed-wing and rotary-wing requirements are covered.

  • The origin, development and transition to current regulations and standards
  • The historical function, structure and responsibilities of the JAA & EASA vs. other National Aviation Authorities (NAA's)
  • Not just the Rules & Standards and where to find them, we focus on the intent of them and how they work together.
  • The differences between EASA, FAA and JAR Rules & Standards and how to deal with AMC situations.
  • FSTD Joint Implementation Procedures (JIP)—the principle and methodology of Standardization Teams.
  • All related documentation for the evaluation and qualification of a FSTD
  • The regulatory document format and the use of its parts for all items including the intent of the Regulations.
  • Qualification Test Guide (QTG) requirements and their relationship to Acceptance Test Guides
  • The process and good practices for running QTG's
  • Planning a Qualification evaluation.
  • Visual systems tests using test patterns and equipment.
  • Review of the requirements of a Compliance Monitoring/Quality System with practical examples of an approved CMM.
  • FSTD Data issues: "flown" data, substitute data, engineering data.
  • Regulatory requirements for updating, modifying or moving FSTD's
  • Special issues related to helicopter FSTD's
  • ICAO 9625 issue 3 and above development, it's implications, and what must be done to adopt these guidelines
  • Future developments in both technology, standards and regulations

Should your requirements be additional, including hands-on training and practice of QTG checks and the analysis of results, you may wish to consider our 5-day or 6-day FSTD Evaluators course.

Course documentation

The documentation provided with the course will provide each student with a copy of each of the EASA, FAA and JAR regulatory documents covering fixed and rotary wing aircraft. We provide these in electronic format with custom bookmarks for easy searching, plus one each of TTI's custom hard copy of EASA Rules & EASA CS-FSTD small format booklets.  In addition the student will receive a copy of Volume 1 and Volume 2 of the Royal Aeronautical Society’s "Simulator Evaluator’s Handbook" as applicable to current rules, plus the Student Notes specially produced by TTI which contains thumbnails of every presentation slide used by instructors.
