The Civil Aviation Flight University of China (CAFUC) has agreed to acquire a Cessna Citation M2 Level D flight simulator from TRU Simulation + Training that will support the school’s fleet of four M2 light jets delivered this year. It will be the first Level D M2 simulator to operate outside the U.S.
“This agreement is the latest in a long history of support to both CAFUC and to the Civil Aviation Administration of China,” said TRU v-p and general manager Gerald Messaris. “We are pleased to continue that relationship by providing CAFUC with advanced technology and a world-class flight simulator to enhance the work of the school in support of China’s aviation industry.”
Equipped with the latest Garmin G3000 avionics, the simulator also features real aircraft parts throughout the cockpit. Manufactured at TRU’s fabrication and logistics center in Tampa, Florida, the simulator is expected to be operational by the end of 2021.
In addition to the M2, CAFUC operates a fleet of 159 Cessna 172 Skyhawks and seven Citation CJ1/CJ1+ twinjets.
