pIMG_1233 (7).JPGThe FAA approved PCATD allows students to log 2.5 hrs of simulation time toward their private pilot certificates; 10 hrs of simulation time toward the instrument rating, seek and NOW the PCATD may be used to perform the approaches, cheap holding procedures, and intercepting/tracking required under section 61.57(c)(1) for recent instrument experience (INSTRUMENT CURRENCY)! ELITE Basic ATDs give pilots a mental edge by providing a safe training environment that is conducive to learning, practicing, and understanding instrument procedures. Unfortunately, an actual aircraft cockpit usually does not provide such an environment and indeed can be quite overwhelming for newer instrument students. Often, these students in the early phases of their training never really develop the proper instrument thinking skills to gain and maintain proficiency. Although able to replicate what they have been taught, many students don't feel the confidence or accomplishment that can only come from true understanding. The ELITE Basic ATD platform is a powerful training tool that helps students practice their instrument thinking skills, i.e. visualizing procedures, situational awareness, scan technique, etc., before getting in the aircraft. Equipped with the training experience from the ELITE Basic ATD, students then take to the air better prepared to perform what they have learned.


Flying Is...

"You can always tell when a man has lost his soul to flying. The poor bastard is hopelessly committed to stopping whatever he is doing long enough to look up and make sure the aircraft purring overhead continues on course and does not suddenly fall out of the sky. It is also his bound duty to watch every aircraft within view take off and land". >Ernest K Gann, 'Fate is the Hunter'
