L-3 Link Simulation & Training of Arlington has announced that its Crawley, U.K.-based operation has received two aviation certifications.
 
The certifications, from the Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency, were given for two Boeing 787-8 full flight simulators installed at the Boeing Flight Services Miami campus.
 
The simulators are the first such Boeing devices to receive level D certifications from a national aviation authority.
 
“We are proud to have the first 787 full flight simulators qualified in the world at our Miami campus,” said Len Weber, director of operations for Boeing Flight Services, commenting in a news release.
 
An L-3 Link official also lauded the designation.
 
“Achieving parallel level D certifications from both the FAA and EASA for these 787-8 full flight simulators was due to an exceptional level of effort and coordination between the Boeing and L-3 teams to ensure that all commitments were met,” said Mark Gasson, L-3 Link UK vice president.
 
The flight training device has a fully functional avionics capability, including an electronic flight bag and heads-up display, allowing all procedures to be accomplished.
 
L-3 Link UK is expected to complete additional level D certifications on three 787 full flight simulators later this year.
 
L-3 Link Simulation & Training provides total training solutions for operators and maintainers across a wide range of military and civil aircraft platforms. More information is available at www.link.com.
