Our Single-Engine Piston Advanced UPRT Flight Simulation Training Device (FSTD) is a pioneering system that integrates custom-developed capabilities specifically designed for small single-engine piston, glass-cockpit, complex airplanes. This isn’t just a simulator; it’s a comprehensive training platform that accurately simulates the real-world flying environment in a secure and controlled setting.
Customizable Cockpit Configurations
Our FSTD stands out with its customizable features. The device can be configured with fixed landing gear and offers the flexibility to change the glass-cockpit instrumentation to the classic 6-pack round dials. This adaptability allows for a more tailored training experience, closely matching the cockpit environment you’re most familiar with.
Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT)
Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) is the most significant threat to air safety in aviation. Our FSTD is purpose-built to tackle this risk through our comprehensive Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT). All training is conducted within the device’s Validated Training Envelope (VTE), ensuring that each scenario you encounter accurately mirrors potential in-flight situations.
Expertly Guided Training
Our UPRT is about more than just advanced technology; it’s about the expert guidance that accompanies it. Each training session is supervised and mentored by an APS-certified class-specific UPRT instructor with extensive experience. These seasoned professionals bring a wealth of knowledge to the table, ensuring that you’re not just learning to operate a simulator, but you’re learning to become a safer, more skilled pilot.
Our instructors are APS-certified, a testament to their expertise and commitment to providing the highest level of instruction. They’re not just teaching you how to fly; they’re teaching you how to react, make critical decisions under pressure, and maintain control in the most challenging situations.
Mitigate Your Risk of LOC-I
Our primary objective is to help you mitigate your risk of LOC-I, the number one threat to air safety. Through our advanced FSTD and comprehensive UPRT, we’re arming you with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to handle any situation that comes your way.
