Building on the success of ELITE’s “round-gauge” PI-135 Basic ATD, the PI-1000 provides incredible training fidelity for glass cockpit users. This FAA-approved AATD uses LCD screens and realistic bezels to provide the best simulated, high fidelity E1000 panels available on the market! A key feature is the ability to perform WAAS approaches, and it simulates the appropriate autopilot. The PI-1000 also includes the required back-up instrumentation for realistic training. Using the Lockheed Martin® Prepar3D™ visual, you’ll be flying the PI-1000 in one of the most beautiful scenery software available. This is a commercially licensed visual—so you know you won’t be violating any laws while training. This system provides training for simple and complex aircraft, and single-engine and twin engine aircraft! The simulated e1000 software changes reference speeds, engine/propeller instrumentation, and fuel management depending on the aircraft selected.
The ELITE PI-1000 Professional Flight Simulation Training Device is a single seat, open cockpit, autopilot, replica G1000 equipped Flight Simulation Training Device capable of representing almost all aspects of the operational envelope.
