Changing the way Aircraft Training is done.
Custom Training Courses
Our training goal is to put you in control of any situation that you may encounter. We train so that recovery from that problem will become second nature to you. We train to help you gain the ability to get to a safe landing. We train to keep you from getting into more trouble until you can review the emergency checklist. We train to help you save your passengers and your aircraft.
Aircraft SIMULATOR Courses
Six Degrees of Motion SIM
Our custom built full six degrees of motion simulator is fully enclosed and creates total movement and actual flight characteristics. It is used for high end training in our high performance aircraft. This includes jet training, turboprop training, large twin engine training and complex aircraft training. We wanted to give an actual aircraft feel that some sims just do not do.
King Air Initial and Recurrent Training
Our full motion 6 degree of freedom simulator is used by our experienced instructors for King Air 200, 100 and 90 computers. We have instructors who fly the planes and teach in the planes. We have taught numerous pilots on the operations of the King Air aircraft. This is an intense course and you will be able to understand, operate, and fly the King Air aircraft. Training available now.

It happens because the underlying system has problems. In fact, in aircraft problems usually come in twos or threes. In certain airplanes “swinging” the gear is a major
