Simloc Provides Brok-air Aviation Group with the First Simulator Integrated into the Fuselage of a Real Aircraft.

Design, manufacturing and assembly of a generic A320SR type certifiable simulatorA number of months ago, Brok-air Aviation Group announced the acquisition of this A320SR MCC generic Simloc simulator, through its Brok-air Aviation Academy division. With this modern simulator, Brok-air becomes the first centre in the Canary Islands to be able to offer top-quality training to different groups within the aviation industry. This is a pioneering project as, for the first time, it is integrated into the cabin of a real fuselage.

Sources from the company state that with the integration of the simulator in the cabin “we will be capable of giving basic training courses for Aircraft Maintenance Specialists (AMS), AMS aircraft certification courses and even specific courses for MMC (Multi Crew Cooperation) pilots, preparation for airline tests, beginners’ flying courses and courses for Passenger Cabin Crew (PCC) at unique facilities on the islands”.

A “Very Uncommon” Challenge

For Madrid-based manufacturer, Simloc, this has been no small feat. “We were very excited to take this on, as it has been a very uncommon project”, stated Manuel García-Muñoz, electronic engineer at Simloc. “Given that we already had a certifiable generic simulator, Brok-air’s request was a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate its quality, with the challenge of adapting certain characteristics to this new scenario”.

As a result, Simloc has achieved a pilot training device that completely replicates the entire cabin and all the original panels. Once everything is painted and carpeted, the impression is that of entering a brand new plane, with a fully working cabin.

The Brok-air fuselage has two main aircraft access doors, an evacuation ramp, 14/17 rows of passenger seats, service areas, bathrooms and the other elements for an aircraft of this kind.

A Visual System at Height

“But the most complicated thing has been the visual system”, said García-Muñoz, “because our simulation cabins are supported by the ground, and given that the Brok-air simulator is inside a real plane, at a real height, we were asked for a visual aircraft system that was elevated in the cabin, with no support on the ground, leaving the space where the aircraft is located free for people and material to pass along. This was the big challenge”.

Simloc’s solution was to design and manufacture a semi-circular aluminium structure, with a diameter of six metres and a series of anchoring supports and lugs, which have enabled the visual system to be completely elevated, as required by the client, without damaging the fuselage in any way.
