MIAMI, April 28 (UPI) -- The Edge 737 full-flight simulator marked its U.S. debut with the delivery to a Pan Am training center in Miami, aviation company Rockwell Collins announced.

Rockwell Collins announced it delivered its first Edge 737 NG Full Flight Simulator to the Pan Am International Flight Academy's North American training center in Miami.

"The delivery to Pan Am is especially important to us as we look to introduce more training centers and pilots to the advanced capabilities of this system," said Ken Schreder, vice president and general manager of simulation and training solutions for Rockwell Collins.

The 737 flight simulator features image-generating technology that is an industry leader in realism, Rockwell Collins said. The instructor suite gives users the ability to customize training procedures as well, the company added.

Rockwell Collins said it expected the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration to award the 737 full-flight simulator its highest certification next month.
