Frasca International, Inc. said that Sky Safari General Aviation Co, Ltd., in Shanghai, China, has taken delivery of a new Frasca R44 Level 5 Flight Training Device (FTD). The Frasca R44 FTD is a high-fidelity simulator for the Robinson R44 helicopter. The simulator cockpit replicates the R44 aircraft, including panels, controls and instrumentation. Additional features include Frasca's TruVision visual system providing highly realistic visual training environments.   

Sky Safari conducts rotary- and fixed-wing training for private pilot license and commercial pilots license programs utilizing several Robinson R44 Helicopters and Cessna C172S aircraft.
Frasca has been active in the Chinese aviation market for more than 25 years. Chinese customers include government flight colleges and universities, airline training centers and privately owned aviation academies and schools.
This is the second such simulator delivered to a Chinese flight school recently, said Frasca's president, John Frasca.
There are currently 14 major Chinese flight universities, colleges and private training centers operating 34 Frasca simulators.
