New Sim Software Has Intel Inside
Students in the
University of Cincinnati Professional Pilot Program training at
Sporty's Academy, as well as more than 100 flight training students
at Eastern Cincinnati Aviation, are now able to fly a much more
sophisticated and realistic Frasca flight training device (FTD) in
either a single-engine or multiengine configuration.
A new Pentium PC with Frasca's latest processing software allows
for a more realistic aerodynamic modeling and systems behavior,
while a digital sound system upgrade produces additional engine and
environmental sound simulations, enabling students to transfer more
of what they learned in the FTD to the aircraft.
Frasca's newest simulated avionics package looks and operates
very closely to the nav/com equipment found in new aircraft. In
fact, the simulator has a KLN 94 GPS to provide all of the
navigation position outputs as it would in the aircraft allowing
full GPS approach capabilities.
More realism is added with a new Textured Color Visual System
and a high-resolution color monitor. This technology greatly
increases scene realism by adding detail to the images and provides
more accurate weather simulation.
Students training at Sporty's Academy and Eastern Cincinnati
Aviation may fly the simulator for private pilot through commercial
pilot training, recurrent training, interview preparation and a
variety of scenario-based training.
