The FSS is a highly reconfigurable modular flight simulator in which pilots can explore the potential impact on future flight decks of near-term changes like smarter, more autonomous engines and revolutionary technologies, such as electric, fuel cell and hybrid propulsion. Independent of any airframe or manufacturer, it builds reassuringly on familiar aircraft controls. Pilots interact with information presented on up to 4 large reconfigurable touch screens and 2 smaller side screens. By repositioning or removing seats, screens, side sticks and thrust levers, it can represent anything from small single seat aircraft to the largest jumbo jets.
