A new Avio IFMS equipped, full-motion Eclipse twin-engine jet simulator is now ready for training at SimCom’s Orlando, Florida training center.
The Eclipse Jet simulator is an FAA certified, Level D, full-motion device.
“As such, there is no need to operate an actual aircraft in order to complete all training requirements for the issuance of a single-pilot Eclipse Jet type rating or for completion of any recurrent course,” company officials said.
In-aircraft instruction following a type rating is also offered for those individuals who require mentor training. SimCom’s Eclipse Jet training is approved by all major insurance underwriters, company officials add.
The Avio Integrated Flight Management System (IFMS) in the new simulator represents the latest avionics configuration installed in Eclipse Jets, currently representing over 260 jets in service worldwide. Now, in addition to practicing normal and emergency procedures in the simulator, Eclipse pilots training at SimCom can practice advanced avionics functions with the integrated Flight Management System, including electronic moving maps, airport and approach diagrams and the terrain avoidance and warning system (TAWS).
