General Atomics AeroTec Systems GmbH (GA-ATS) has placed an order with EURAMEC N.V. of Hamme, Belgium, for a fully-immersive flight simulator for the Dornier 228NG aircraft family. According to the company, this simulator allows for a complete “immersion” in the virtual situation due to the greatest possible closeness to reality. The simulator will be built by EURAMEC and delivered to ATS’s flight training facility in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. The Do-228 flight simulator will be certified as a flight training device to EASA FNPT-II/MCC and FTD Level standards.
GA-ATS is the result from the acquisition of RUAG Aerospace Services GmbH and focuses on the maintenance and repair of business aircraft and military helicopters as well as the production and maintenance of the Dornier 228 at the Oberpfaffenhofen site with approximately 400 employees. General Atomics AeroTec Systems GmbH is a subsidiary of General Atomics Europe GmbH.
