Simulators are used as part of the training syllabus and are very useful for Multi-Crew training exercises, Jet Orientation, and Instrument Flying. They can also simulate adverse conditions such as emergencies and bad weather/visibility. We currently have two types of simulators at AFT and here's a brief synopsis about each type:
- Frasca DA42 Multi Engine Piston FNPT II: This state-of-the-art trainer is an exact copy of the Diamond DA42 Twin Star aircraft. The AL200-DA42 Flight Synthetic Training Device (FSTD) allows students to become familiar with the aircraft's systems and dynamics. The device is equipped with 2 Garmin 1000 units, 1 GMA and a Bendix King-like autopilot. All systems specific to the DA42 are included in this DA42 FSTD and instructors can input additional, explicitly designed failures of their own.
- Frasca CRJ200 Multi Engine Turbine FNPT II: This 208° panoramic, "high degree of realism" simulator is a brilliant training environment for basic IR up to MCC and even Jet Transition Training. The instructor doesn't need computer skills to provide excellent training.
All assessments are now undertaken at our Academy in Coventry.
