Epic Flight Academy has taken delivery of a Frasca 172 Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) with Frasca's Motion Cueing System for fixed wing devices (FMCS-FX). They are the first flight school to own and operate a general aviation device with this level of high fidelty motion. The AATD is the first of its kind to include a six-axis motion base and high definition three channel wrap around visual systems, features typically not available on this level of device. The device was delivered to the school in early September.
Frasca worked closely with Epic to develop a device for their training aircraft that would not only simulate the aircraft instruments and controls, but would add enhanced training value of motion utilizing Frasca's Motion Cueing System for Fixed Wing Aircraft (MCS-FW). The motions system is based on advanced technology originally designed for use in higher level Flight Training Devices and Full Flight Simulators.
