iGate Series FAA approved AATD Simulator (Advanced Aviation Training Device)

THE iGATE ADVANTAGE fea­tures the lat­est dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy and crys­tal clear LCD dis­plays. These cutting-edge devices uti­lize pre­cisely mod­eled flight dynam­ics with no ana­log instru­ments to cal­i­brate, wear out, or break. Train with accu­rate cock­pit detail for max­i­mum train­ing trans­fer­ence from air­craft sys­tems and avion­ics to nav­i­ga­tion and flight pro­ce­dures. Mul­ti­ple air­craft mod­els for train­ing on sim­ple, high per­for­mance or twin engine air­craft. On a sin­gle trainer, train on advanced avion­ics such as HSIs, RMIs, flight direc­tors and GPS. Sep­a­rate graph­i­cal instructor’s sta­tion with print (printer not included) and record capa­bil­ity, com­pre­hen­sive fail­ure modes & weather mod­el­ing. Great for flight schools, FBOs, col­lege flight labs and cor­po­rate flight depart­ments. Whether teach­ing stu­dents, pre-hire eval­u­a­tions or just main­tain­ing pro­fi­ciency, the iGATE will give you max­i­mum return on your investment.

The addi­tion of the GNS 430/530 & GTN 650/750 is part of ELITE’s con­tin­u­ing com­mit­ment to expand its GPS library and pro­vide avion­ics choices that are rep­re­sen­ta­tive of what is becom­ing com­monly avail­able in today’s increas­ingly high-tech GA cockpits.

The new Garmin instal­la­tions will uti­lize the actual 430, 530, 650, 750  hard­ware devices. Either of these pop­u­lar GPS units can be added to exist­ing ATDs or ordered as an inte­grated option for Advanced ATD sys­tem pur­chases. For exist­ing sys­tems where an inte­grated instal­la­tion is not applic­a­ble a stand-alone ver­sion of each model equipped with a cus­tom hous­ing is available.
