Frasca International has launched a new, affordably priced Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) which will be on display at this years Airventure, July 23-29, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The new Frasca RTD™ (Reconfigurable Training Device) is designed to meet customer demands for a lower priced entry level reconfigurable device that also provides the advanced features required to meet their training objectives.
The Frasca RTD is easily reconfigurable between different aircraft models including the Cessna 172 and Piper Seminole and between legacy and realistic, advanced avionics which operate and function exactly as in the aircraft. The RTD features a browser based Instructor Operator Station (IOS) which can be controlled by phone, tablet or desktop computer. The RTD can be configured with a single or three channel visual display system and includes digital sound simulation.
Frasca will display two of the RTDs at their indoor booth location in hall C (#3405) and one at their outdoor space in Aviation Gateway Park (#56). They will also be exhibiting a Cessna 172 Level 5 flight training device in their mobile trailer at the Gateway Park Location (partnering with Alpha Eta Rho). Demonstration flights will be available at both locations. The RTD devices will be available with advanced glass avionics and conventional round dial instrumentation.
The first launch customers of the RTD are American Flyers and Metropolitan State University of Denver (Metro State).
