Will Be Used To Train New SR22 Pilots
Cirrus Design Corporation recently selected Frasca International
of Urbana, IL to provide an SR22 Flight Training Device (FTD) for
use at the planemaker's training center in Duluth, MN.
The FTD will be used to train new Cirrus SR22 owners upon
delivery of their aircraft. It will include CAPS (Cirrus Airframe
Parachute System) and de-icing simulation, Avidyne Entegra avionics
and Frasca's TruVision 170 visual display system.
"I'm excited by Frasca's commitment to bring exceptional flight
training devices to Cirrus pilots," said Bill Stone, Director of
Flight Standards at Cirrus Design. "Simulation is a phenomenal
training tool with benefits for all pilots. I appreciate Frasca's
assistance in bringing a flight training device to the Cirrus
factory and their interest in providing similar technology at
Cirrus Standardized Training Centers.
"In its first weeks of operation, the device in Duluth has
already provided dramatic flight lessons to several Cirrus
customers," Stone added.
Frasca International manufactures flight training equipment for
airlines, flight schools, universities and military organizations
worldwide. Product range includes Flight Training Devices (FTDs),
FNPT I, II and IIMCC devices, CPTs, Full Flight Simulators (FFS)
and more for all aircraft types, fixed wing and rotary. Frasca has
delivered over 2000 devices to some 70 countries since the
companies founding in 1958.
For the last five years, the Cirrus SR22 has been the world's
best-selling aircraft in its class.
