Cirrus Aircraft has added a second FAA-certified Level D full-flight Vision Jet simulator to serve the company’s expansion plans and provide access to flight training, including initial type-ratings and recurrent training for new and pre-owned aircraft owners at the Cirrus Aircraft Vision Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. The latest Vision Jet simulator, built by CAE, is now fully operational.
Cirrus Aircraft believe this to be the world’s first single-engine personal jet. Today, there are over 500 Vision Jets in the market and over 1,055 people are type-rated.
Cirrus Aircraft now leverages two FAA-certified Level D full-flight simulators, two FAA-qualified Level 6 fixed-based training devices and multiple avionics trainers for Vision Jet training and demonstrating aircraft systems such as the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS).
