One of Aero Simulation’s partners, Christie Digital, has put together an in-depth case study of their product on our HC-144A Level D Operational Flight Trainer. Christie Digital provided the 9 Christie Matrix StIM WQ Projectors that is being used on the device, which is currently the world’s largest collimated visual display system on motion. In addition to the case study, which is linked to here (click on the Download button on the page for a PDF of the case study), Christie also filmed a short video on our Flight Trainer and their projectors (click on the image below to be taken to the YouTube video).  The beautiful scenery you see out the windows is from Aechelon Technology, Inc.
