ST. LOUIS (BNS): Boeing is showcasing the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet Block II flight simulator and an array of other company products at the Latin America Aerospace and Defense (LAAD) 2011 trade show, which began Tuesday in Rio de Janeiro.

The simulator includes a front and rear cockpit and demonstrates the capabilities of the single-seat E model and the two-seat F model. Its 180-degree projection screen offers virtual-reality visibility of cities, forests, roads and buildings as well as enemy aircraft.

The system is capable of demonstrating simulated aerial combat and air-to-ground targeting, navigation, and mission systems operation. Operators also can practice landing on and taking off from runways or an aircraft carrier, Boeing said.

The Super Hornet strike fighter is in service with the US Navy and the Royal Australian Air Force and is currently one of the finalists in Brazil’s F-X2 fighter competition.
