It is a B-ATD PI-135 Flight Simulator
Its capabilities are a great improvement over the flight simulator that we had. It has a separate control station whereby the flight instructor can change weather, fail instruments, and all kind of fun things like that.
Once we have approval from the FAA we can use it to log 2 hours of training toward a private pilot certificate, and 10 hours toward an instrument rating. It also has multi-engine capability. It is a great introduction for someone who wants to get a multi-engine rating.
Also, with the price of fuel, use of the flight simulator is a great cost savings to you. If you have an instrument rating, you can use it to keep your instrument currency. If you have not flown in a while and want to sharpen your skills, you can do it in the simulator, get the feel for the airplane again before you jump in the airplane itself.
And on rainy days, we can still fly!
The rate for the flight simulator is $45.00 per hour and $40.00 per hour for the instructor.
