Flight simulators play a pivotal role in pilot training. By simulating real-world flight conditions, they provide pilots in training with a safe place to learn and experiment. Lufthansa Systems is happy to supply its certified Lido FMS data including ARINC 424 simulation continuation records to MPS. Pilots benefit from having the best possible training conditions, as Lido FMS is the same high-quality data that they will later use in the real world.
