I wanted to thank you again for the great training we experienced this weekend, the ground school subjects were presented very well and made sense from an operations standpoint. Although the simulator is a fixed FTD, the simulation was very real and was presented in a true professional approach to everyday flying in this aircraft.
We currently operate a Hawker 800XP and a King Air F90 swapping from one airplane to the other on a weekly basis and needed an everyday approach that would match our operation. I have attended simulator based training since the early 80s and can honestly say you rank right up there with the “big boys” in both the training and customer service.
Thanks again, we will plan on seeing you next year.
Art, I am truly a better pilot with a better understanding of the aircraft after spending 4 uninterrupted days with you. You assisted me in gaining a good appreciation for the capabilities of the airplane while sharpening my instrument, scanning and interpretive skills.
I look forward to my recurrent KA-200 training in 6-12 months with you at Glass Simulator Center.
Thanks, Art, so much and please keep in touch!
Your instructor was professional and kind. I felt at ease during the ground lessons as well as in the simulator. Not only did we cover all aspects of the Garmin, I was able to practice GPS techniques in the simulator which I would never try to figure out in the murk.
I have recommended this course to others and look forward to the future training endeavors with GLASS.
Better trainers came along over the years, but this Frasca 142 goes beyond being a trainer. It really is simulation, giving one training and realistic experience. Where else could you find a fuel truck on the runway just as you line up to depart, have your altitude gyro tumble, or virtually break thru a stratus ceiling in conditions of 300 ft. & 1/2 mile. It is as close to actual as you can get and not break your neck if you failed to pay attention or do it right.
We are recommending to our friends that even if they are not going for a rating, the experience you get in this simulator may be just what is needed to show you what can happen if you’re not alert or you think you can beat the weather.
