FlightSafety International has been selected by the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NA WCTSD) to design and manufacture Flight Training Devices for the AH-I Z and the UH-1Y. The devices will be installed at the Marine Air Corps Station Futenma in Okinawa, Japan.
They will feature FlightSafety’s latest advances in simulation technology.
