AXIS – THE NEXT GENERATION OF FLIGHT SIMULATORS
Located near Graz, Austria, AXIS was founded in 2004 by engineers and pilots with the mission of designing and building the next generation of FFS. Our products, from training devices to full flight simulators, meet and exceed EASA, FAA, ICAO qualification requirements, and offer exceptional reliability, effectiveness and availability.
As experienced hardware and software engineers, we build the best. As pilots, we understand your requirements. As a company, we are always open to new requests and requirements. Together, we'll find the optimum solution for your training operations.
WHO ARE WE?
AXIS is the next generation flight simulation solutions provider and innovator. Our flight training devices set a new benchmark in availability and efficiency, and offer the most realistic possible simulation experience.
WE ARE THE INNOVATORS
As engineers, we always ask ourselves if there is a better way to make flight training systems. And very often there is. We developed our own control loading system for higher fidelity and lower power consumption. Our Smart Panels replicate the functions and appearance of original instruments, but cost less and are much more durable. Instead of a forest of cables, we design our simulators to use just a few I/O buses. Our TMCS system drastically reduces maintenance time and effort. Our Rehost platform tremendously simplifies flight simulation software management. The list could go on.
As a flight training technology innovator, we create new approaches that make simulators more realistic, more reliable, easier to use, more cost-effective and more maintenance-efficient – and thus more profitable to operate.
Innovation is nothing without quality, and AXIS products, from flat panels to full flight simulators, are built here in Austria to the highest standards, as documented by ISO 9001-2015 certification.
