Dated: Dec 02, 2021


[NEWMARKET, ONTARIO, CANADA, November 30, 2021] - Canadian FTD manufacturer Flightdeck Solutions (FDS) announced today the delivery of a B737MAX Flight Training Device to the Western Michigan University College Of Aviation.

The school took delivery of FDS’ most popular device at the Kalamazoo, Michigan campus in mid-November 2021 as part of a move to increase its footprint in Aviation Academia. Joining the College Of Aviation’s sizable fleet of small aircraft, the Flightdeck Solutions B737MAX FTD opens up new curriculum opportunities for the school as it expands its aviation program to include airliner-based training.

The fixed-base FDS-B737MAX-FTD device is equipped with an enclosed instructor station, a high-level instructor console featuring over 200 equipment malfunctions, a Control Loading System, a brand new FDS COMM Pack for advanced radio communication training, and a 220º wrap-around visual system. A second, equally equipped Flightdeck Solutions B737MAX device has since been ordered by the school for 2022 delivery.
