Flight Options Flight Academy has placed an order for a Frasca Piper Seminole RTD (reconfigurable training device). The RTD is an FAA approved AATD and has also received Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) approval as a category B synthetic trainer.
The device will be configured as a Piper Seminole with Garmin G1000 avionics and will feature a three channel visual display system. The Frasca RTD is the only AATD with actual licensed G1000 software for PFD, MFD & GFC700 autopilot.
The Frasca RTD is reconfigurable between different aircraft models and between legacy analog and modern Garmin G1000 NXi glass avionics. It is built using robust hardware for reliability and 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.
