Simulator Training at Fort Schuyler for NYC Ferry Captains

Captains on the new Citywide Ferry service in New York harbor are receiving training on a state-of-the-art simulator at SUNY Maritime College at Fort Schyler.

In October of 2014, Suny Maritime opened its new Bouchard Transportation Company, Inc. Tug and Barge Simulation Center, the latest in the college’s Kongsberg Polaris Bridge simulation technology, utilizing an industry-inspired bridge console arrangement, with the latest hydrodynamic ship models and exercise areas. The Center offers full mission bridge simulators, instruction stations, and a de-briefing area, where instructors can discuss topics including navigation, seamanship and bridge resource management skills.
