Frasca International, Inc. has been awarded a contract by the University of North Dakota (UND) to provide several flight training devices (FTDs) for their aviation program.
The multiple unit purchase agreement will include a large number of FTDs for the Piper Archer and Seminole aircraft. The FTDs will be the first to feature the new Garmin G1000 NXI avionics and will be built to FAA Level 5 qualifications. They will also feature Frasca's TruVision™ Global visual system, Simplicity™ instructor operator station, and more. As of the second quarter of this year, four units (two Seminole and two Archer FTDs) have been ordered with options for additional devices over the next few years. The first FTD, a Piper Seminole has been installed and three additional devices will be delivered in July of this year.
UND currently uses over 20 Frasca devices in their aerospace program at their Grand Forks, North Dakota and satellite campuses.
