FAAC is the premier provider of fully-integrated simulation & training systems and related support services utilized by military, municipal, and commercial customers.
FAAC began doing business in the simulation industry nearly 50 years ago. Our first, fully-interactive driver training simulator was sold over 25 years ago. Customers include fire departments, police departments, major trucking companies, transit organizations, educational organizations, the U.S. military, and Government agencies. FAAC has sold over 800 full-task training devices installed at fixed locations or in trailers. We have an enviable record of supporting these products—many for 10 years.
Through the support of FAAC, its customers have implemented some of the most successful driver training programs in existence today. Such programs have resulted in reduced intersection collisions by 50% and have produced significant savings in liability payouts. These are the numbers that can be proven; the number of near misses or lives saved is purely anecdotal but remarkably impressive.
Every system follows a standard production plan. Once a purchase order is received, a project will be created and a Project Manager (PM) will be assigned. The PM will be the liaison between FAAC and the Buyer and will be the primary point-of-contact for the duration of the project. The PM will provide the Buyer with a project schedule to identify the key milestones and events that will require participation by the Buyer. Delivery lead time for standard production systems is 90-120 days ARO. Custom Systems take between 120-180 days ARO depending upon the level of customization and component requirements.
Your agency not only gets the best technology but also the peace-of-mind that the company will be here to support you through the continued life of your training program. FAAC does more than just sell you a simulator; you are treated as a customer for life.
