State of the art Frasca Simulators

This flight simulator can be easily reconfigured to different aircraft configurations, and it’s durable design and easy maintenance make it an extremely reliable training tool. Using the G1000 NXi Software, the flight instructor is able to control the simulated environment (wind, temp, time of day), as well as cause simulated failures (engine, avionics, fuel) in real time.
