FULL FLIGHT SIMULATOR
AXIS designs and builds cutting-edge Level D simulators, employing innovative technologies that significantly reduce complexity, improve functionality and slash maintenance requirements. We use top-of-the-line parts for reduced maintenance while enhancing the training experience, combined with unique developments that make day-to-day operation smoother and more flexible.
The result is a superior training experience that is as realistic as it gets, combined with industry-leading availability and ease of use, for maximum ROI.
Designed for Reliability
AXIS software is LINUX-based. Due to its flexibility and adaptability Linux is much better suited to real-time and heavy-duty industrial applications than Windows, and is the best runtime environment for simulators. It’s no coincidence that NASA migrated ISS laptops from other operation systems to Linux.
The replication of the cockpit with OEM-quality simulated aircraft parts together with software-based avionics simulations allows considerable use of COTS parts, and assures the highest reliability with the lowest maintenance costs.
Instructor Operating Station
Forward-facing, electrically movable, highly ergonomic IOS (Instructor Operating Station) with two horizontal 20" 16:9 full HD touchscreen displays. The GUI minimizes instructor workload during training sessions. Control of the training session and all other systems is at the instructor’s fingertips, including motion, visual, oxygen, audio, and air conditioning.
UPRT and Wind Shear
There is a dedicated menu on the IOS with ten preconfigured scenarios for UPRT (Upset Recovery and Prevention Training) there is a dedicated menu on the IOS with ten preconfigured scenarios. G forces are displayed on the IOS to inform the instructor if any aircraft structural limits are exceeded.
For wind shear training there are eight different preset conditions, based on international authority requirements.

FLIGHT TRAINING DEVICES
AX-T, AX-1 and AX-2
AXIS Flight Training Systems is at the technological forefront of the industry with innovative, dependable, high-performance training devices. At every level, our technologies minimize trainer workload and maximize training availability and effectiveness.
Our Flat Panel Trainer.
There are many tasks that pilots must learn that do not require high-fidelity simulation, and cost-effective Flat Panel Trainers are ideal for the purpose. They can also be used for self-study.
Our Flight Training Device.
These can address more involved flight situations like jet orientation and multi crew cooperation. They are significantly more specific to the aircraft type.
Our Full Flight Trainer.
With collimated visual, active forces and sound, the Full Flight Trainer replicates the cockpit environment to near-full flight simulator level (but without take off and landing).
MADE TO ORDER
AXIS builds panels of the highest quality, not just for our own simulators, but also for third party sims. We supply panels to order for specific aircraft types, to fit specific simulation environments.
Our Smart Panels give customers the choice of simulated or stimulated instruments that replicate the look and feel of actual instruments, but are significantly more cost-effective and maintenance-efficient. With our modular approach, customers can also use real instruments where necessary or desired.
WEBBASED AVIONIC TRAINERS
AXIS Desktop Flight Management System
With this full-featured AXIS simulation, pilots can learn FMS operation on a computer. The FMS is basically the additional brain in the plane besides the pilots. Pilots make inputs to the FMS like weight, fuel, routes, and altitudes via the CDU (Control and Display Unit). The FMS then calculates and programs flight routes, procedures, and performance-based climb and descent profiles using a large database and sensor information from other aircraft systems. The aircraft status is shown on the Electronic Flight Instrument System in the cockpit.
The AXIS TAWS Terrain Avoidance and Warning System Simulation (EGPWS)
A modern TAWS works by using worldwide elevation data and airplane instrument values to predict whether the calculated future position of the aircraft will intersect with the ground. The flight crew gets aural and visual warning of impending terrain, ensuring a forward-looking capability and safe operation at low altitudes in the landing configuration.
TCAS II SIMULATION
The AXIS TCAS II 7.1 Traffic Allert and Collision Avoidance System
AXIS stays at the forefront of avionics technology, and our advanced TCAS simulation has been updated to reflect the latest standards. To prevent incorrect pilot responses, the “Adjust vertical speed” RAs from TCAS version 7.0 have been replaced by new “Level off, level off” RAs which require induced vertical rates to 0 ft/min.
The new RAs minimize the altitude deviations and level bursts of TCAS 7.0, reducing the impact on air traffic control operations and safety.
Detailed weather briefing is a must before every flight, but bad weather can’t be controlled, so accurate weather detection and avoidance systems are critical to ensure safety in aviation. AXIS’ innovative AX-WXR weather radar simulation provides information on cumulonimbus (CB) clouds combined with icing, heavy precipitation, thunder and high turbulence, so pilots can choose flight paths early enough to avoid disruptions to the flight, significantly reducing flight deck workload. The system has been tested and implemented successfully in many different simulators the world over.
Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV) is a subsection of Area Navigation (RNAV) approaches. Approaches to LPV minima are non-precision approaches, but are very similar to precision ones (ILS). The difference is that ILS is a ground-based approach, which needs transmitters and antennas for each individual runway. RNAV LPV guidance uses the space-based Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), which can provide guidance to an unlimited number of aircraft simultaneously conducting approaches at multiple airports around the world.
