Simulator Evaluation Training

As simulation experts, we know firsthand how important it is to pass the National Simulator Program (NSP) qualification test successfully – and how devastating a failure could be. A qualified simulator is a vital component of any aviation program. Delays in qualification can cause schedules to slide, budgets to be overrun, and the value of your simulator to decrease in the eye of the operator.

What if there was a way to prepare for the NSP qualification with confidence? That’s exactly what our flagship suite of courses, Methods of Simulation, provides. With over thirty years of FAA NSP management and qualification experience, we’re here to help organizations that want to increase the operational efficiency and effectiveness of their flight simulation devices. Methods of Simulation courses will equip technicians and managers with the tools needed to meet the challenges and demands of operating, maintaining, and qualifying their Flight Simulator Training Devices (FSTD).
Methods of Simulation is equally applicable to commercial, government and military applications. We designed and built the course based upon widely accepted evaluation practices used by the FAA and other simulator qualification authorities worldwide. We take each student through an in-depth analysis of the latest methods, techniques and processes so that they can feel confident going into their simulation qualification test.

The Methods of Simulation suite is comprised of three courses, uniquely tailored to the student's skill set and educational requirements.

Frequently asked questions

Students will receive a combination of instructor lead classroom-based tutorials, discussions and case studies. At key points throughout the course, our instructors will reinforce the classroom-based learning with hands-on practical exercises in a FSTD.

For Simulator technicians: The course will cover the fundamentals of simulator design elements such as aerodynamic modelling, control loading and motion, data sources, visual systems, audio systems, objective and subjective testing.

For operations and management: All of our courses aim to prepare your management and operator staff with best practices for the preparation and conduct of FAA Simulator Evaluation activities. You’ll also cover aspects such as Qualification Test Guides, simulator hardware & systems, validation data challenges and regulations as they pertain to FSTDs.

Courses can be conducted at your facility or ours and are scheduled on an on-demand basis. 

We limit student numbers to maximize teacher/student ratios and a comprehensive learning experience. This also ensures appropriate attention is afforded to each student during the hands-on practical exercises.
