Virtual Flight Deck

Virtual Flight Deck

The Virtual Flight Deck (VFD) is the complete simulation of an Aircraft’s Systems and Flight Deck, brought to life on a PC.

With the VFD, pilot and maintenance technician trainees can view and operate all panels, controls, indicators, and displays within the flight deck. The VFD provides real-time interaction with every system in a freeplay environment to help master systems and phase of flight procedures, including emergencies.

All L3 CTS products are developed using Aircraft and Avionics OEM Data. This data is utilized by our staff of simulation engineers to develop real-time simulation models used throughout the L3 CTS product line.
