Finmeccanica-Alenia Aermacchi announced Tuesday that it is presenting the M-345 Ground Based Training Demonstrator Device(GDD) at ITEC on 28-30 April 2015 in Prague.
The M-345 GDD is an advanced flight simulator, representative of the flight qualities of the Alenia Aermacchi M-345 HET (High Efficiency Trainer) aircraft and offering a replica of the cockpit and the main flight controls of the aircraft.
The ground based training system that includes aircraft flight and systems simulators and computer based training devices, is a main component of the new M-345 HET (High Efficiency Trainer) “Integrated Training System”. It provides Air Forces with an economically affordable and effective solution, thanks to a significant reduction in acquisition and life-cycle costs.
The aircraft benefits from the jet performance and from the expanded flight envelope, both in terms of speed and altitude, which ensure more training per flight hour and higher training download capability from the subsequent Advanced/LIFT phase, providing important cost saving in producing a fast jet pilot.
The aircraft's airframe has been strengthened, and a glass cockpit and modern avionics have been added. As a basic trainer, it is designed to complement the Aermacchi M-346 advanced trainer.
The Ground Based Training System will have its e-learning component including the CBT and the PTD procedural simulator, further to an Operational Flight Trainer (OFT), a simulator which is likely to feature the same software as the PTD, with an additional 180° wide display and a life-like cockpit where the student pilots can use the same controls they will find on actual aircraft.
The Alenia Aermacchi M-345 which was M-311 before 2012, is a turbofan-powered military trainer aircraft. It is based on the earlier S-211, with the addition of both structural and equipment improvements.
