StallBox® is an industry-proven hardware and software solution designed to provide airlines and training centers with the stall models and instructor displays necessary to conduct Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT).

The StallBox solution minimizes computational and schedule impacts on the host device by off-loading flight model execution to an external computer that communicates with the existing host simulator system.

The StallBox Process

Model Development

Depending on the aircraft type, Bihrle will provide a stall model from its existing library of models or develop a representative model for the specific aircraft type. If a model needs to be developed, Bihrle will use a process recognized by the FAA to develop the type-representative stall model, leveraging computational and empirical methods and its 40+ year experience in high angle-of-attack aerodynamics.

Installation

The stall models are hosted on the external “StallBox” which connects to the existing simulator and requires only a lightweight code interface on the simulator host computer for communication. Using a Bihrle-provided API and check cases, the device operator will establish the communication interface with the StallBox computer and verify it’s operation.

Qualification

Using a process recognized by the FAA, the type-representative (aka “Exemplar”) stall model will be verified by a qualified Subject Matter Expert (SME) and adjusted as necessary. Upon successful evaluation of the model by the regulatory authorities, the simulator will receive an FAA endorsement for upset prevention and recovery training.
