Integrated Procedure Trainer

747-8

The 747-8 Integrated Procedure Trainer (IPT) provides a fully-simulated cockpit with integrated hardware replicas of aircraft-specific parts that allows pilots to train on normal and abnormal procedures in a free play simulation within a 3D spatial environment.

The IPT uses multiple touch-sensitive screens to display the actual cockpit environment in a 1:1 ratio as well as to display active schematics.

Our 747-8 IPT features 2 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) with the full suite of Boeing class 3 software.

Built-in Test Equipment (BITE) allows training of maintenance personnel.

747-400

The 747-400 Integrated Procedure Trainer (IPT) provides a fully-simulated cockpit with integrated hardware replicas of aircraft-specific parts that allow pilots to train on normal and abnormal procedures in a free play simulation within a 3D spatial environment.

The IPT uses multiple touch-sensitive screens to display the actual cockpit environment in a 1:1 ratio as well as to display active schematics.

Our 747-400 IPT can be equipped with 2 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) with the full suite of Boeing class 2 software.

Full Flight Simulators

747-8

In May 2012, Cargolux introduced its own Boeing 747-8 Freighter full-flight simulator at the training center in Luxembourg. It is the world's first full-flight simulator for this aircraft type.

The CAE 7000 series features state of the art electric motion system providing more accurate and authentic motion cues than the hydraulic system used on the company’s 747-400F FFS. The enhanced visual system generates a highly detailed synthetic visual environment to train pilots under the most difficult flight conditions.

The Cargolux B747-8 simulator has the following specifications:

  • Engines: GEnx-2B67
  • EASA FSTD Qualification Level: D
  • Motion System: CAE Electric Motion
  • Visual System: CAE TROPOS 6000 IG, 3 channels 210 x 40 deg field of view

747-400

In February 2000, Cargolux introduced its own Boeing 747-400 full-flight simulator in Luxembourg, one of a few worldwide in freighter configuration. In 2010 the visual was upgraded to the latest standard.

The simulator can be operated with different engine configurations, a change to the passenger variant is also possible.

The Cargolux B747-400 simulator has the following specifications:

  • Aircraft Type: B747-400
  • Engines: RR RB211-524H2, GE CF6-80C2B1F
  • Qualification Level: JAR STD-1A (Level D)
  • Motion System: CAE Series 600 (hydrostatic)
