747-200 FFS

The 747 “Classic” CAE Flight Simulator is one of the few remaining simulators of its type in the world. While originally built for KLM as a 747-300 with GE engines, once it was acquired by Kalitta Air, the simulator underwent several crucial upgrades improving both functionality and reliability.  The airframe and engine configurations are now user selectable as either a 747-200 or 747-300, with GE CF6-50E2 or Pratt & Whitney JT9D-7R4G2 engines. Avionics upgrades include CMC FMS, Astronautics EFIS, GPS, TAWS/EGPWS, Auto-land/Rollout Guidance, IS&S Engine Instrument Display Systems, and iPad based Class 2 EFB. Other notable simulator upgrades include a modernized Host Computer, Instructor Station with flat panel touch screens, and Digital Control Loading.

The Visual System has been upgraded with a state of the art RSI Raster XT Image Generator and LED DLP projector technology. The Image Generator uses World-Wide Geo-Specific Terrain and Imagery, special weather and lighting effects, and winter scenes to create a highly realistic environment in Dusk, Day, or Night. Available Class I Airports are KJFK, KLAX, KSFO, EHAM, EDYY, and VHHH. Unlimited generic airports are also available.

FAA approved for CAT III, Circling Approach, Windshear, RNP/AR, TCAS, SMGCS, and all aspects of normal and non-normal operations training. An extensive malfunction database is available.

The 747-200/300 Flight Simulator is available for lease by air carrier training departments.

747-200 and 747-400 UPPER DECK DOOR TRAINERs

Kalitta Air 747-200 and 747-400 Upper Deck Door Trainers provide realistic EVAC training. Both were constructed in-house by Kalitta Air Aircraft Maintenance in Oscoda Michigan. They began by removing the door and surrounding structure from retired aircraft. The removed sections were then mounted to custom made support structures. Kalitta Air door trainers meet all regulatory requirements and provide a real, practical EVAC training experience.
