Yes! You can select to purchase the PI1000 either as the desktop or the Pro variant. Check our comparison table above to see the main differences.

We are happy to provide you with visual systems ranging from one monitor to a complete surround visual system with three projectors.

We are happy to dispatch our technicians for an onsite installation & training on how to operate the device. Although this is not mandatory, most of our customers select this option. Advise your sales contact that you are interest to get your quote.

The device is very easy to operate and reconfigure. Nevertheless to be eligible for FAA credits, the device must be operated by an FAA approved Instructor.

This device is very popular with home users, universities, and flight schools that do not log hours. It can also be certified by other authorities, such as CASA in Australia. Ask your sales agent for more information.
