Simcom’s Eclipse sims get FAA nod

Eclipse Aerospace, in conjunction with SimCom Training Centers, has earned FAA Level D certification of the EA500 full motion simulators located in Orlando, Fla. SimCom also received FAA approval for its Eclipse 500 pilot training program that includes Initial, Recurrent, Differences and Mentor training. Eclipse 500 pilots will be able to schedule factory approved training provided by SimCom as early as October.

The EA500, a Very Light Jet, has a cruising speed of 425 miles per hour and is capable of a distance of over 1,100 non-stop nautical miles. The twin-engine jet is able to fly at a 41,000 foot ceiling.
