China A320 FFS gets certified CAAC Level D
An Airbus A320 full-flight simulator (FFS), built by ACCEL Flight Simulation, has received Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) Level D certification.
The FFS uses an ASTi Telestra system to simulate the aircraft’s comms system and to generate all the A320’s environmental and aural cue sounds. The simulator supports both CFM and IAE A320 Conventional Engine Option (CEO) configurations.
Level D sound simulation can be challenging for flight simulation manufacturers because Airbus variants use different engine types.
