I am suprised that there is no -SP that can be found (so far). There are a lot of simulators that have multiple configurations and software loadings. I recnetly completed a simulator "Change-out" as we call it of a Boeing 757 to a 767 which was shipped to Kunming China. In your search, ask if the simulator has different configurations. Our Louisville Kentucky airline training center is the only one of our divisions that has a 747. FlightSafety (SSD division) has never made a B747, all of the 747's were purchased from another simulator manufacturer. As for different -SP simulators, the only one is a Gulfstream GIV-SP in operation at our Savannah training center. Wheather we could have made a "change-out" version of this one I am not sure. Usually demand dictates when we make a single type simulator when it is possible to make a multiple version. Currently I am designing a Cessna Bravo/Ultra-B. It's pretty messy but it can be done. I apologize for getting a little long winded, I am a new internet user. David Horn FlightSafety International Simulation Systems Division 2700 N.
