CAE 7000XR Series C-12 King Air Full-Flight Simulator


Teamed with CAE USA in Dothan, Alabama, APS offers integrated academic, on-aircraft, and full flight simulator Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) at the CAE Dothan Training Center (CAE DTC). Originally established to support the U.S. Army’s needs as part of the Army’s fixed-wing flight training program delivered by CAE, the APS-CAE Dothan UPRT program was expanded in 2019 to additionally serve other domestic and international military organizations as well as civilian pilots. Typically paired with on-aircraft upset training in the Grob 120TP all-attitude turboprop training platform, simulator upset training at the CAE DTC is conducted in one of four 7000XR Series C-12 King Air full-flight simulators (FFSs), equipped with the all-new, enhanced UPRT Instructor Operating Station (IOS) jointly developed by CAE and APS. The IOS helps comprehensively analyze airplane upset events in real time and assists in transferring skills learned in the Grob 120TP into the multi-engine/multi-pilot crew environment.
