SimCom Training Centers has acquired 14 simulators and training programs from FlightSafety International.
With the addition of this equipment, SimCom will operate 59 simulators in five training center locations in the United States. The list of devices SimCom acquired includes a King Air B200, King Air C90B, Cessna Conquest I, Cessna Conquest II, Piper Cheyenne III, Piper Cheyenne I/II, Turboprop Twin Commander 1000, Turboprop Twin Commander 690A, Cessna 421C, Beech Baron 58, Piper Navajo, Cessna 210, and Saab 2000. The simulators range in sophistication from advanced flight training devices for the piston-powered models to full-motion simulators for the turboprops.
The Twin Commander 1000 and 690, Twin Cessna 300/400, Cessna 425, Cessna 441, Cheyenne III, and Cessna 210 simulators and training programs will be relocated to SimCom’s training facility in Dallas. The King Air 90, 200, Cheyenne I/II, Navajo, Beech Baron 58 and Saab 2000 simulators and training programs will be positioned in the company’s Orlando training centers.
“We are very excited to be adding additional simulators and training capabilities,” explains Wally David, SimCom’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Even though we have tended to add Level C and D full-motion jet simulators over the past few years, we will always consider turboprop and piston pilots to be a very important part of our business. We are confident these aircraft and their operators will continue to play a major role in the future of general aviation. In fact, many of our customers tell us they are flying turboprops and pistons more than ever due to their utility and cost of operation.”
Tracy Brannon, SimCom’s Chief Operating Officer, adds, “Transfer of the simulators and courseware from FlightSafety to SimCom will begin immediately and should be completed by year end. The relocation is being coordinated so that existing customers will have minimal impact to their training schedules and needs. Our goal is a seamless transfer of training capability for customers relying on simulator training for safety and competency.”
