At the moment we only deliver the PI235 AATD as a turnkey solution in the Pro configuration.

Please contact our sales team, with pictures and any other document you may have, to see if your device could be upgraded. If not, you might be eligible to our buyback program.

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.

Not at all! Our simulators are designed to be very easy to convert, and anybody with proper initial training can perform this easy task within a few minutes.
