Ground Running Simulator & Cockpit Familiarization

The term ground running of an aircraft describes the sequence of operations to be performed as a purpose to check the functionality of the engines and sub systems of the aircraft while on the ground. The checks are done by the aircraft technicians after the maintenance.

Ground Run simulator, the equipment will train the aircraft technicians, how to perform the ground run of the aircraft sequentially and also about the various emergencies that can occur during the ground checks.

The simulator training includes the general information regarding the physical parts to be checked, before the ground run, checking the systems, sub systems, engine start, and engine’s performance along with the emergencies that can occur during the actual ground run of an aircraft.

The Ground run simulator reduces the occurrence of unwanted consequences during the training sessions of the aircraft trainees. As if the trainees are trained on actual aircraft, the consequences like loss of control during towing the aircraft to the bay area, delay in response to the emergencies, or any kind of error response while the ground run.

 

The simulator includes sequence of checks as follows:

  • ☑ External / Internal checks
  • ☑ Pre-starting checks
  • ☑ Engine start
  • ☑ Engine Ground Testing
  • ☑ Cooling and Shutdown
  • ☑ Emergencies
  •  

The ground run simulator also includes the gauges which are operational during the process dependent on the version of the air craft.

The simulator consists of mock-up cockpit, computer system for instructor, live operational view of the instrument panels for the class, and electronic control panel.
