Multi-Engine Flight Simulator
Sep 06, 2021
KTRK has upgraded its state-of-the-art flight simulator with a new option for MULTI-ENGINE capabilities! Pilots can now practice in a multi-engine piston or turbo prop aircraft such as the Beech Baron G58 and/or a King Air 200, in addition to flight simulation in a single engine Cessna 172, C182, or C206.
The Airport District originally purchased the Precision Flight Controls built Advanced Aviation Training Device featuring Garmin’s G1000 NXi avionics flight simulator in May 2020. The flight simulator was acquired in an effort to reduce - actual “in the sky” training flight operations, noise, and greenhouse gas emissions. An added bonus is the lowering of training costs for District constituent students and licensed pilots wishing to improve skills, work on currency and become familiar with an aircraft or flight route. For example, a student learning to fly a Beech Baron G58 would pay ~$365 dollars per hour for the aircraft rental plus ~$150+ an hour for the cost of an instructor.
The flight simulator is located in the new Hangar 1 flight training room behind the Sierra Aero / Mountain Lion Aviation office building. For verified new student or licensed pilot users living within the Airport District boundaries, the flight simulator use is free. For reservations email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
