The Ascent(R) XJ Trainer from Mechtronix Systems provides realistic automated flight deck training for FTO's and professional schools seeking to offer MCC, LOFT, Entry Level Training (ELT) and MPL.
Mechtronix Systems has announced the introduction of the Ascent(R) XJ Trainer which will provide a realistic introduction to the automated flight deck for today's FTO's and professional schools seeking to offer MCC, LOFT, Entry Level Training (ELT) and MPL and courses in a commercial, regional or business jet environment. The device has already been well received by the market with three orders on hand from le Centre Quebecois de Formation Aeronautique (CQFA), Center Air and an undisclosed customer. Henceforth, the device will be known as the Ascent(R) XJ Trainer; X for transitional and J for Jet.

In its commercial configuration the trainer provides an aerodynamic and realistic representation of the larger aircraft class like the A320 or B737NG which pilot students will be faced with at the beginning of their career. The new unit will feature a generic commercial jet flight model that is reconfigurable to a generic regional turboprop providing a modern multi-crew flight deck training experience in both environments for its students seeking to fly for today's airlines. It also features EFIS, Autopilot, FMS, EGPWS and TCAS resulting in a powerful and cost effective training solution. The Jet Transition Trainer meets key regulatory qualifications such as FAA FTD Level 3, FNPT II MCC requirements under JAR-STD 3A and ICAO MPL FSTD Type 2.

'We see the Ascent(R) XJ Trainer as an exceptional training device that meets the quality and affordability requirements of today's professional pilot schools and high end FTO's that are gearing up for pilot provisioning, be it in the context of Multi Crew Pilot Licensing or the more classic training footprints,' said Xavier Herve, President of Mechtronix. 'The new trainer offers a clear view to the future of Pilot Provisioning which is now!'

'FTO's will also benefit from the technical architecture of the Ascent(R) XJ Trainer, which makes the trainer easy to maintain and operate' said Paul Solnoky, Mechtronix Simulation Program Development Director. 'The trainer will provide student pilots with a realistic modern cockpit environment, which includes high fidelity simulation of the aerodynamic performance, aircraft systems and Avionics systems such as EFIS, Autopilot, FMS and TCAS found in today's commercial and regional jet aircraft. FTOs will be pleased to find that we have also included some of the recent developments found in our FFS X & FFT X units used by today's airlines to this new platform.'
