- What type of aircraft do your simulators represent?
While our flight models and cockpit layouts provide a generic aircraft type, each of our simulators allow for a number of configurations to be selected in order to provide a range of models to closely resemble what a student would normally fly.
Aircraft represented on our single engine simulators are:
- Cessna 172SP
- Cessna 177RG
- Cessna 182
- Piper Saratoga 301 II TC
- Mooney Acclaim
Aircraft represented on our twin engine simulators are:
- Piper Seminole
- Piper Seneca
- Beech Baron
We are currently developing type specific Cessna 208 and DA42 which will be available from mid 2019.
- What about delivery and installation?
Delivery and installation is free within New Zealand. Overseas delivery costs will be quoted and simulators are shipped almost fully assembled. In order to allow installation through doorways, we have limited the maximum width of each section to 780mm and length to 1450mm. The simulator footprint measures 1600mm x 2400mm and is 1420mm high, so it will easily fit in a small room and runs from a normal power outlet. Installation will be carried out by one of our technicians along with training in the operation of the simulator and instructor station.
