ELITE Simulation Solutions has received FAA certification of its Garmin G1000-equipped series Advanced Aviation Training Devices. The first such device to be configured as the new Baron G58 was recently delivered to FAA headquarters in Washington, DC.
The iGATE Model G500-G1K series trainers are outfitted with the actual Garmin G1000 hardware utilizing the now familiar 10.4-inch PFD/MFD display pair. Single engine models currently include the Cessna 172S, Diamond DA40, and Beechcraft Bonanza G36. Twin engine versions include the Diamond DA42 and Beechcraft Baron G58. Additional aircraft versions will become available as the fleet of G1000-equipped aircraft grows.
“The Flight Standards Service, General Aviation & Commercial Division at FAA headquarters will now have a convenient, high-tech way to stay proficient,” says Fred Zanegood, ELITE director of marketing. “The FAA took delivery of the new device in late May and will be using it for ongoing in-house training and proficiency specifically related to Technically Advanced Aircraft (TAA).”
