Flight Simulator

Merlin MP520-T Engineering Simulator

This simulator is used to support engineering design modules that involve aerodynamics and control systems by giving a more practical experience of aircraft design than a traditional theory and laboratory approach. Students design and input their own aircraft parameters into the simulator before then assessing the flight characteristics.

The simulator is a fully-enclosed single seat capsule mounted on a moving 2-degree of freedom platform which incorporates cockpit controls, integrated main head-up display and two secondary instrumentation display panels.

An external instructor console also accompanies the simulator and is equipped with a comprehensive set of displays, override facilities and a two-way voice link to the pilot.

Elite Flight Training System

The Elite is a fixed base Piper PA-34 Seneca III aircraft simulator used for flight operations training and is certified by the CAA as a FNPT II-MCC Multi-Crew Cockpit training environment.

It has two seats, each with a full set of instrumentation and controls, and European Visuals, so you see a projection of the terrain that you're flying through, based on real geographic models of general terrain and specific airports in Europe.
