Havelsan Full Flight Simulator is indeed a huge achievement for the aviation industry. Credit goes to the Turkish technology and simulation company HAVELSAN.
The leading company proudly announced that they have achieved European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Level D certification (the highest level of qualification for a flight simulator) for its Boeing B737-8 MAX full flight simulator.
This simulator will help Turkish Airlines train their pilots with the best possible simulator and produce highly professional pilots.
HAVELSAN has been producing flight simulators since 2017. This EASA Level D certification flight simulator is capable of providing a realistic environment and mimics the actual cockpit experience for undertraining pilots. The trainee pilots can practice landing takeoff in day, night, and bad weather visuals.
The simulator provides the cockpit system/environment including the movements of the aircraft. The company is working towards obtaining EASA Level D certification for other aircraft like Airbus A320 CEO/NEO FFS soon. These steps will definitely take the Turkish aviation industry towards better.
