FAA Approves Touch Trainer For Cessna Singles

New Version Of BATD From FlyThisSim

The FAA recently approved a new version of the FlyThisSim (FTS) TouchTrainer flight simulator using touch screen technology for many of the controls and avionics. The new version is approved as a Basic Aviation Training Device (BATD) for Cessna 172 (RG), 182 (RG), and 206 for six pack and Garmin G1000 aircraft.

This new TouchTrainer compliments the version that was FAA approved in March of 2012 for the Cirrus SR 20/22 line of aircraft.

In one turn–key package a TouchTrainer provides accurate simulation of performance, systems, and avionics enabling aircraft specific instrument and procedure training for both students and experienced pilots. According to the company, retractable gear and constant-speed propeller versions are also provided where appropriate.

FAA approval means the time flying the TouchTrainer can be logged toward a private or instrument rating and toward maintaining instrument currency.  Instrumentation is supported by high-fidelity electrical systems models that provide power to avionics as per aircraft so that systems and emergency training can be carried out.

The FTS custom GPS WAAS simulation enables fully coupled LNAV, LNAV+V, and LPV approaches to be practiced along with the usual ground radio-based approaches, such as ILS. The approaches are based on current navigation database from the FAA National Flight Database rather than legacy data. Navigation data, updates, and technical support are included in the first year.
