Diamond Flight Simulator
Available Options and Optional Features

Conversion Kit

An additional DA40 instrument panel is delivered with the simulator.

The FSTD can be converted between a DA42 and a DA40 configuration by swapping the instrument panels.

The software is automatically switched to the correct aircraft type.

The converted DA40 FSTD can be qualified as EASA FNPT II or FAA FTD Level 5.

Air Conditioning System

The air conditioning system of the DA40/DA42 can be provided with the following details:

Original operational AC control panel.

Integration of the AC system into the electrical system.

Engine power reduction when the AC system is switched on.

MCC Conversion Kit for DA42

The DA42MCC is a tuned DA42 equipped with fictitious turbo prop engines that meet the CS-25 single-engine power reserves as required by the EASA regulations. Missing and required systems, such as the pressurization system, are added for the MCC configuration.

De-icing Panel

The TKS anti-ice system of the DA42 is simulated. The original control panel from the aircraft is correctly located within the instrument panel of the FSTD. The amount of anti-ice fluid is displayed on the G1000 NXi and can be adjusted by the instructor via the IOS software. The effectiveness of the anti-ice system will depend on the severity of the icing scenario selected by the instructor.

MPP Kit for DA42

The cockpit contains the following DA42 MPP specific elements:

MPP interior

Bubble canopy

Mission control panel (no functions implemented)

Hard point for pilot display

AUX fuel tanks

Garmin SAR option

The simulation software is adjusted to take account of the reduced performance of the aircraft (climb and cruise performance).


The computer rack will include an uninterruptible power supply that provides enough power to safely shutdown the simulator after a power failure.

Debriefing System

The FSTD is equipped with a Session Recording System that allows stream recording of training sessions, consisting of:

One server computer for recording sessions and storing up to 1,600 hours of session data.

HD camera for the cockpit interior and the external vision straight ahead as seen from a viewpoint between the pilot and the copilot seat.

Recorded flight training sessions can automatically be transferred onto customer-provided long-term storage and backup solutions after the training session.

During a training mission, the flight instructor can start and stop the recording at any given time. Further on, bookmarks can be set by the flight instructor and any given point in time during the recording.

A session recording viewer for debriefing use is provided as installable software package for Microsoft Windows which can be used for guided debriefing, as well as individual self-debriefing.

The software allows loading and playing back session recordings with standard video player controls (play/pause, fast-forward, rewind, seek on timebar, jump to event) and presents a freely resizable four-panel view.

A video panel showing the contents of the recorded cockpit video.

A moving map/approach panel showing a bird’s-eye-view of the aircraft position and heading on a moving map or a paired vertical and horizontal profile of the approach path for a runway.

An EFIS panel showing a re-imagining of the G1000 NXi PFD contents with selectable CDI source and selectable engine instruments page.

A flight control panel showing the live position of the pitch, roll, and yaw controls, as well as the trim controls, power lever position(s), and the flap and gear controls.

Further on, for any point in the mission, the currently triggered malfunctions and disabled circuit breakers are shown.

Customized Airports (High Fidelity)

The custom airport models will provide higher detail compared to the generic models.

The airport area is textured with a 0.5 m/pixel satellite image.

Apron and buildings.

The apron layout corresponds to the aviation chart.

Representative apron markings are drawn for published parking positions according to the aviation chart.

The apron surface is a generic asphalt or concrete texture.

Generic 3D models of static vehicles and aircraft are placed on the apron.

Specifications apply to standard equipped aircraft, if not otherwise stated. The above data are approximately specifications and may change without notice.
