Executive Flight Training Upgrades to E500 Displays in King Air
Long time ELITE customer Doug Carmody’s training center, Executive Flight Training (EFT), has updated their King Air B200 Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) to now include an E500 AHRS (attitude heading reference system) display. The E500 display is based on the Garmin G500 series avionics, which is a popular choice by aircraft operators when adding glass displays to aircraft cockpits. The E500 is now an upgrade option on ELITE’s iGate series simulators for a variety of the aircraft models.
Executive Flight Training plans to use the new addition to enhance their already popular initial and recurrent King Air training courses. The upgrade helps keep the simulator up to date with the avionics that are becoming more popular in the actual King Airs that the students will be flying.
