Run a flight deck mockup by feeding several monitors through multimonitor graphic cards or through networked computers, or run a single computer for solo training. Or network any combination that suits your needs. Panels can be zoomed, panned, divided.
Precision Simulator models the combi, freighter, passenger, and ER variants of the B744 series, and many selectable airline options:
Includes instructor screens
World-wide navigation database, global weather model, random traffic
Simulates over 500 malfunctions
Has all EFIS and standby instruments
Complete dual FMC model with FANS–1
CDU standby navigation
Smooth A/T, autopilot, F/D; exact mode logic
Flight control system logic, ratio controllers; realistic, fine-tuned aerodynamics model
Accurate GE, PW, RR performance models
IRS, GPS, weather radar, navaid antenna effects
Comprehensive EICAS, EGPWS, TCAS, PWS etc.
Communications, ACARS, CPDLC, Voice-ATC, ATIS, PNF etc.
Electrical CBs, all distribution busses, supplying over 1000 simulated relays and devices with individual voltage–amperage modeling
Detailed fuel system with 2003–revision
Dynamic hydraulic and pneumatic pressure models
Ice and rain protection
The following systems are required to run Precision Simulator 10 (PSX):
Java version 1.6, or 1.7, or a higher compatible version. If Java is not already installed on your computer, it can be downloaded free of charge from java.com.
Apple OS X, or Microsoft Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8, or Linux or any other operating system that supports one of the above Java versions, and that includes a PDF reader for viewing the operations manual. (PDF readers are also available in the Internet.)
A monitor with at least 800 x 800 pixels. Undersized monitors can be used as well—for example, to display certain small flight deck sections on networked monitors—, but the instructor screen will then be cropped, and should then be displayed on a second, suitable monitor. Do not use Retina resolutions.
Dual-core or multi-core microprocessor, running at 2.5 GHz or higher
4 GB RAM or more
3 GB free hard disk space
A keyboard, ideally one that includes a numeric keypad
A mouse, or any similar pointing device
Access to a DVD drive is required for the initial installation
Optional: USB yokes, sticks, pedals, throttles, buttons, and other USB inputs. Add-on software & hardware compatible with the Aerowinx TCP/IP network.
Note: Java utilizes hardware acceleration for the graphics. Hence, the frame rates in the simulator are very high, typically ranging from 30 to 70 fps.
