Wilmington, OH – October 18, 2017 – ABX Air, Inc. announced today its plans to update and certify its B767-200 Full Flight Simulator to provide Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT). This advanced training capability, enabled through the use of the StallBox® solution developed by Bihrle Applied Research Inc., allows pilots to more accurately train to recognize and recover from a full aerodynamic stall. This training capability was previously unavailable in the simulated environment due in part to the lack of full stall models and appropriate instructor training aids, which StallBox® provides.
The ABX Air B767-200 simulator will have the ability to conduct UPRT in accordance with U.S Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 14 Part 60 Directive 2 by December 2017, well ahead of the FAA’s 2019 deadline for incorporating such training into all Full Flight Simulators used for commercial pilot training.
StallBox® is the first FAA-qualified solution on the market to meet the FAA's newly enhanced requirements for stall modeling and instructor displays (CFR 14 Part 60 Directive 2). Currently in use by both commercial and military customers, StallBox® provides airlines and training centers with a robust solution that leverages 40+ years of expertise in aerodynamics data collection and software modeling of complex flight regimes.
