Initial development Full Flight Simulator

In November 2016 the team at 19-01, under the guidance of Renato Sacchetti, began the development of the specifications and creation for the first Full Flight Simulator, level D, for the Canadair – CL415 water bomber. This project has a high degree of complexity needing to address the issues around amphibian simulation, fire simulation and flight envelope. Todate no other key player on the market has been able to achieve this despite the fact that the original aircraft dates back to the 1960’s. The vision for this project started back in 2012 when the founder felt the need to solve the issue of the high accident rates that occured during training – under live conditions – of the pilots. The team hired a CL415 from the Italian government and by locating all the necessary sensors on the aircraft were able to collect all the needed data to define the technical specifications. The start for the creation of the new simulator was thus born.


As the interest in 19-01’s project gained global visibility, Renato was personally invited by His Royal Highness, Prince Abdulaziz bin Faisal bin Abdulmajeed Al Saud to attend the Global Family Office Summit in Riyadh.
Following the catastrophic wildfires of 2021 interest in this project has gained further visibility around the world.
By August 2021, despite all the difficulties arising from the incumbent pandemic the 19-01 team have now finalized the main specifications for the future development of the new aircraft –
