** NOTE: ELITE soft­ware is not com­pat­i­ble with Win­dows 8 oper­at­ing sys­tems. We are test­ing the soft­ware for Win­dows 10 com­pat­i­bil­ity but it is NOT com­pat­i­ble with Win­dows 10 at this time.

ELITE does NOT guar­an­tee com­pat­i­bil­ity with every com­puter sys­tem, even if spec­i­fi­ca­tions are fol­lowed. For this rea­son, we highly rec­om­mend pur­chas­ing your flight sim­u­la­tor com­puter through ELITE to ensure it is built to accom­mo­date ELITE soft­ware require­ments and com­pat­i­bil­ity. Please con­tact an ELITE Sim­u­la­tion Solu­tions rep­re­sen­ta­tive for more information.

For years, professional pilots had no choice other than to maintain IFR proficiency in an expensive full flight simulator. By introducing the world’s first professional PC-based airliner-class simulator, ELITE offers a completely new way to practice IFR procedures to keep skills sharp.

ELITE V8 Pilot Jet is used as an evaluation, instruction and training tool by, corporate flight departments, flight schools, regional and national carriers and universities. The built-in power is such that you can experience on your home computer a simulation performance that matches the actual aircraft.

After using the ELITE Pilot Jet V8 for a check-ride many student pilots have amazed their instructors with a superior score. You will be surprised when you compare the cost and training benefits of ELITE with devices costing thousands and even millions of dollars more. Add any aircraft to this package (see Aircraft extensions section for pricing).

Note: We recommend the use of a ELITE Power Quadrant (note: the ELITE software range is compatible only with the ELITE range of Power Quadrants)
