Flight Simulation

The College owns three different flight simulation devices. Use of these training aids improves student pilot training and helps reduce overall costs of the program. 

  • A Redbird flight training device, with motion. This brand new state-of-the art training device simulates both a Piper Archer, Seminole and a Beechcraft Baron (For CRM training). It has 230 degrees of vision, the entire USA with all airports in the database, and dual controls for crew resource management training. (Shown in top photo to the right.)
  • A Frasca Raptor, which models a traditional "round dial" or analog aircraft, and is used for instrument training, multi-engine training, and crew resource management.
  • A flight management system trainer for Canadair Regional Jets. Airlines expect new hires to know how to program the flight computer and operate sophisticated glass cockpit systems.
