It’s a great start to the new school year at the ERAU Flight Line. 2 new Frasca TruFlite simulators were delivered and setup in the simulation building (F7) in late August and are now FAA certified and ready for student training. Some of the highlights of the new simulators are as follows: C172S G1000 with NXi, 3 projector wrap around visual system with 5000 lumen projectors, advanced weather with lightning, thunder, rain, snow and simulated icing conditions, aircraft traffic and warnings system, advanced 3 axis control loading offering student pilots realistic forced feedback on flight controls, advanced instructor station (Frasca Simplicity) with dual touch screen monitors and lit keyboard, Wi-FI and Bluetooth connectivity for iPad ForeFlight navigation and much more. Stay safe.
