MPS to incorporate ASTi Interface into its FTD’s

April 20, 2016

Multi Pilot Simulations (MPS) of the Netherlands entered into agreement with Advanced Simulation Technology inc. (ASTi) to develop an interface to the ASTi Simulated Environment for Realistic ATC (SERA) for all of its A320 and B737 fixed base simulators. MPS FTD’s will operate seamlessly with SERA, providing a comprehensive communications environment and high-fidelity aural cue sound model.

ASTi’s SERA system provides accurate, real-world Air Traffic Control (ATC) using unique, realistic "human" voices to teach students proper terminology and interaction with synthetic controllers. Updates to the SERA control interface allow students to select and run predefined training scenarios through intuitive, web-based control pages. As a result, instructors no longer need to role-play air traffic control calls, and can concentrate on the training focus throughout each simulator session.

The simulators are based on the needs of flight training organizations and airlines for affordable, high quality devices that are specific for certain classes of jets.
