scope:

This report provides guidance on the following key points:

• The first objective is to outline the document and data requirements of the operator, to sufficient depth and completeness upon initial delivery.

• Secondly, the documentation should be maintained current, accurate, and relevant to the device. This remains important throughout the life of the device, regardless of any potential transfer of ownership.

• Thirdly, communication between aircraft manufacturers, Training Device Manufacturers (TDMs), and FSTD operators is important for the successful maintenance of the device and documents.

Purpose

The intent of this standard is to provide guidance so the documentation provided with the Flight Simulation Training Device (FSTD) reflects and describes the delivered FSTD, including the description and definition of third party equipment and content.

In the context of documentation guidance found in this report, the term FSTD is meant to include all levels of flight simulation devices.

The documentation described herein is required for the operator to independently support the FSTD in the maintenance, operation, and update of the device throughout the lifetime of the device.

This report describes a superset of a possible range of documentation involved in the initial delivery or an update of a FSTD. The deliverable documentation set for a particular FSTD may vary depending on the level of device (e.g., flat panel trainer versus a full flight simulator) as well as issues related to intellectual property, export compliance, technical requirements, and/or contractual agreements.
