Elite receives FAA nod for portable training device
ELITE Simulation Solutions has received FAA approval of its Ready To Fly (RTF) portable Aviation Training Device (ATD).
The RTF Basic ATD is a self-contained, portable training system based on the popular PI-135 Basic ATD. It includes integrated LCD monitor, avionics panel and flight console as well as separate rudder and travel case. The system’s custom hard-shell travel case features fitted foam inserts for maximum protection and a TSA lock for security. The case has been designed with wheels and retractable handle for easy portability and meets commercial air travel size and weight restrictions.
Once removed from its case the RTF-B is ready to fly in minutes. The brain of the system is a laptop computer that is securely stowed in a built-in compartment within the flight console along with all required cables. The laptop is taken out of its compartment when the device is set up and doubles as the system’s graphical instructor station.
The RTF-B is FAA certified as a Basic ATD and can be used to log 2.5 hours toward the private, 10 hours toward the instrument, and to perform the approaches, holding procedures, and intercepting/tracking required under CFR 14 section 61.57(c)(1) for recent instrument experience (instrument currency).
