About the Simulator
Our simulator is an FAA-approved Advanced Aircraft Training Device (AATD). It is designed to mimic the Cirrus SR series aircraft and features the Garmin G1000 Perspective 6 avionics package. It is designed to be the most realistic Cirrus simulator available. In fact, our sim is the same sim chosen by Cirrus for their own training centers and the United States Air Force Academy. It has been designed to be the most accurate Cirrus SR simulator available. FAA approval means time in the simulator can count towards certification and currency. See what you can log.

Tips for Using the Sim
• Use the armrest to support your arm in the proper position. You should be able to relax your arm in a comfortable position while manipulating the side stick.
• Apply smooth input on the controls. You should never bang against the control stops.
• Standard procedures are a very important part of being a safe and professional pilot. We strongly encourage you to treat the sim as you would an aircraft. One of the purposes of sim training is to develop good habit patterns. Don’t skip checklists, preparation, or preflight tasks because you are operating a sim. Do it right every time, just like you would in the airplane.
When repositioning the sim, be patient as the sim reconfigures its location. It’s typically a good idea to pause the sim after repositioning in order to review the new location & situation. During this pause, reconfigure the aircraft controls (throttle, flaps, heading bug, altitude preselect, etc.) as necessary to match the new position. When doing an air reposition be prepared to fly when the sim comes off pause.
