Pilot Training Systems

Pilot Training Systems Overview

At L3Harris, we are proud to offer a diverse range of world class pilot training systems and software for training center operators and airlines. Our pilot training systems are designed to:

  • Increase training efficiency
  • Prepare trainees for real-life scenarios, using high specification flight simulators
  • Improve flight operations
  • Maintain safety regulations and standards
  • Develop industry-leading crews

From full flight simulators and flat panel trainers to virtual flight decks and obsolescence management, you can use our pilot training software and systems to create a fully bespoke training program, tailored to your procedures, operations and specifications as an airline.

Along with our pilot training software and systems, we also offer other pilot training services and courses to support all your crew, from trainee instructors to maintenance technicians.

Watch the video about our exceptional pilot training systems and software to understand more about how we can support you with the development of your crew.

Our Pilot Training Systems & Software


Full Flight Simulators

With its unique modular architecture, the RealitySeven Full Flight Simulator delivers high degrees of reliability, maintainability, and supportability for training center operators. One of the most innovative pilot training systems available, its core elements are independent of the aircraft type which means different aircraft modules can be flexibly replaced as your fleet or training operation requirements change.

Featuring an aircraft-specific flight deck, the L3Harris FTD offers an alternative to the Full Flight Simulator, without the need to compromise your pilot training experience. With the exception of motion, L3Harris’ Flight Training Device is comparable to our world renowned RealitySeven Full Flight Simulators.

Learn more about our Fixed Based Flight Training Device and how you can use this high-specification pilot training system to bring new efficiencies to your pilot training.

Flight Management System Trainer

The Flight Management System Trainer (FMST) is an excellent first-class pilot training system. With its high-fidelity, free play environment, it offers your pilots the opportunity to learn and manage flight deck systems and practical experience prior to training in a full flight simulator.

Take a look at our Flight Management System Trainer.

Flat Panel Trainer

The L3Harris Flat Panel Trainer is a pilot training system device that allows pilots to develop their theoretical and practical fundamentals, technical knowledge and build on their key competencies.

Our Flat Panel Trainer provides pilots with a training tool to prepare for simulator sessions, potentially decreasing the time needed in more costly training devices such as full flight simulators.

Virtual Flight Deck (VFD)

The Virtual Flight Deck (VFD) allows pilots and maintenance technician trainees to view and operate all flight deck panels, controls, indicators and displays in a simulated environment.

It is one of the most innovative pilot training programs available due to its use of real-time interaction, which will support your trainees with developing their ability to maneuver systems and phases of flight procedures, as well as work through unusual situations.
