Newest Customers Include Delta State University and CTC
Delta State University and CTC Aviation are the latest customers
for Frasca International’s reconfigurable flight training
device, the TruFlite. The TruFlite was introduced last year with
over 30 units delivered to date. The TruFlite can be converted
between multi and single engine aircraft in minutes and utilizes
computer generated instrumentation (CGI) developed by Frasca.
Delta State, Cleveland, MS has placed an order for three
TruFlites, all featuring 172R and Duchess flight models, King KX
155A avionics package with KLN 94 GPS and TruVision, Frasca’s
textured visual display system. One of the devices will also
include a 172RG flight model and TruVision 170, a 170 degree
wrap-around visual display system that allows for teaching ground
reference and other VFR maneuvers.
CTC Aviation Training, with locations in England and New
Zealand, has ordered two Frasca TruFlites, one for each
location. The Southampton, England TruFlite will be
configured as a Beechcraft Duchess, while the Hamilton, NZ unit
will be configured as a Piper Seminole. Both units will be
FNPT II approved with single channel projected visual systems.
Other recent TruFlite customers include Arrow Aviation, McAir
Aviation, ATP Academy, UND, TVI, Airways Flight Training, PAIFA,
Ohio State University and others. Sales of the helicopter version,
the TruFliteH, have also been brisk, with 10 units going to Silver
State Helicopters and others on order.
