Flight Management System Trainer

Flight Management System Trainer

The Flight Management System Trainer (FMST) provides pilots with the opportunity to develop and practice flight management skills in a high-fidelity true freeplay environment. All required avionics are fully integrated, while aerodynamics and engine models offer the capability to set the thrust, flaps/slats, speed brakes, and landing gear to allow for a genuine experience within the aircraft’s operating envelope.

Application and use of the FMST Include the following:


  • Flight Crew Training
  • Practice Preflight and In-flight Procedures
  • Realistic Manual Flight Controls
  • Individual Self-paced Practice & Familiarization
  • FFS Debriefing Tool


  • Standard/Custom Aircraft Configuration
  • Freeplay Environment
  • Lesson Plan Editor (LPE)
  • Distance Learning
