Legacy Flight Training has received FAA certification for its new Piper M600/SLS Frasca flight simulator in its training curriculum. The flight simulator is located at Legacy Flight Training's facility on the Piper Aircraft campus in Vero Beach, Florida.
As the exclusive Authorized Piper Training Provider for the M600, Legacy Flight Training helps students receive their training in a variety of methods, with a simulator, in-aircraft training, and annual recurrent training being offered.
Flight simulators in flight training can help give pilots an advanced level of safety by practicing scenarios that are not ideal for in-aircraft training. "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."
The M600/SLS simulator provides a realistic flight experience using an actual M600 fuselage, pilot seating, sub-panels, switching and flight controls, and a 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 autothrottle system.
