Lebring, Austria, 25 Nov. 2020. Austrian simulator innovator AXIS Flight Training Systems GmbH has installed a new ATR 72-600 full flight simulator at training provider Simtech Aviation in Dublin. This is the sixth ATR FFS that AXIS has delivered. As one of relatively few ATR 72-600 simulators, its puts Simtech in a position to serve customers not only in Europe, but also from Asia, Africa and the Middle East, where these aircraft are in common use.
The new simulator deploys AXIS’ proprietary IRIS rehost avionics solution, as well as many other innovative and proven AXIS design features that give it exceptional robustness and availability. The simulator uses a motion system by E2M and a 200 x 40 degree collimated visual system by RSi.

The simulator is owned by funds managed by Falko Regional Aircraft.
Bob Sheehan of Simtech Aviation expressed great satisfaction with the simulator, as well as the installation service from AXIS. “Our thanks go out to each and every one of AXIS’ team of engineers. From day one, we found them to be warm, friendly, skilful, knowledgeable and totally professional. They have produced a really nice machine and we are very impressed.” As AXIS COO Christian Theuermann noted, “the Covid 19 situation complicated the on-site build and certification process somewhat, but everything went very well.”
The new simulator was successfully approved on schedule, to Level D certification on October 22nd by the Irish Aviation Authority following an extensive 4-day certification check. The first flight by a customer followed two days later, on October 24.
