Emirates signs flight simulator agreement with US firm

Emirates Airline has signed an agreement with US-based aviation electronic solutions provider, Rockwell Collins, for the provision of new image generation and projection systems for the airline's fleet of high-tech, full flight simulators. According to the deal, Rockwell Collins will initially provide 10 visual systems that feature the company's EP-8000 image generation and liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) projection systems. Two of the visual systems will be installed on Emirates' new Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 flight training simulators, one will replace an existing 777 visual system and the remaining seven will be upgrades to existing simulators with Rockwell Collins visual components.
