To continue adding value to its FSTD, the Spanish simulator manufacturer, Simloc, has announced at EATS 2019 the integration of the ATC flight communications simulation system, SERA .
SERA (Simulated Environment for Realistic ATC) is a software from the North American Advanced Simulation Technology Inc (ASTi) that substantially improves pilot training by adding realistic communications with air traffic control towers (ATC) to flight simulator operations.
In this way the instructor is able to set up, for example, busy airspaces with adjustable simulated traffic levels or modify real-time flight plans due to bad weather or traffic conflicts. This System reinforces the training of radio phraseology for new pilots, including non-native English speakers, and improves the capacity of response to heavy workload situations due to congested traffic and communication.
“The integration of the SERA training tool into our FSTD permits to replicate the different phases of the flight at a maximum fidelity level and thus maximizing the training based on the competencies for pilots” says Victor García, Business Development Manager of Simloc. "Our clients can be certain that their pilots will train in FSTDs completely adapted to the current demand on pilot training”.
