Legacy Flight Training is pleased to announce that the company has received FAA certification for use of the new Frasca flight simulator for the Piper M600/SLS in their initial and recurrent training curriculum at their training facility on the Piper Aircraft campus in Vero Beach, Florida. Legacy Flight Training is an Authorized Piper Training Provider for the entire Piper family of products and the exclusive Authorized Piper Training Provider for the M600 and provides simulator training in addition to in-aircraft training with initial training for new Piper owners as well as annual recurrent training.
Overall, use of approved simulators in flight training for sophisticated aircraft such as the Piper PA46, can provide pilots and owners with an advanced level of safety, in addition to in-aircraft training. The M600/SLS simulator provides a realistic flight experience using an actual M600 fuselage, pilot seating, sub panels, switching and flight controls and multi-channel projection system with wrap around visuals. The Frasca built training device features M600 type specific Garmin G3000 avionics with Piper’s HALOTM safety system, inflight stability protection, level mode and auto throttle system.“By allowing pilots to practice scenarios not ideal for in-aircraft training, our customers can achieve a higher level of safety and proficiency. Realistically experiencing and training in scenarios involving start sequence anomalies, stalls, upset recognition and recovery techniques, maneuvers in icing conditions, takeoffs and landings in gusting crosswinds, unusual mechanical failures, and more, provides a proven advantage to pilots of all aircraft,” said Bill Inglis, President and Owner at Legacy Flight Training. ”Coupled with our in-aircraft flight training, our complete training package allows our customers to achieve the highest level of safety, readiness and knowledge in their uniquely capable Piper M600/SLS.”Legacy Flight Training provides training with a team of professional flight instructors with PA-46 specific experience and knowledge at facilities in Vero Beach, Florida (KVRB), Scottsdale, Arizona (KSDL), and Sun Valley, Idaho (KSUN). Students registered for their recurrent PA-46 training (soon to include the Malibu) also have access to approved interactive ground training that they complete before their in-aircraft or simulator training. The coursework is continually monitored by a Legacy Flight Training instructor, and the student and instructor may additionally interact via web-chat as necessary.
