Royal New Zealand Air Force P-3 Orion simulator completes acceptance test

January 1, 2007


This new P-3K simulator, developed for the RNZAF by Fidelity, will be installed at Whenuapai Air Base in Auckland next year. The simulator will provide pilots and flight engineers with a high level of simulation for emergency operating procedures; ranging from crosswind landings to auto-coupled precision approaches and ditching drills – all with six-degree freedom of movement and dynamic control loading, providing a similar ‘feel’ to the real aircraft. Until now, RNZAF pilots have been forced either to go to Australia to use an Australian Air Force simulator in Adelaide, or spend air time in the NZAF's own Orions at a cost of $8000 per hour.
