ELITE RC-1000 Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD)

RC-1000 Example with a three screen visual.

Build­ing on the suc­cess of ELITE’s “round-gauge”  PI-135 Basic ATD, the RC-1000 pro­vides incred­i­ble train­ing fidelity for Garmin G1000 users.  This FAA-approved AATD uses LCD screens and real­is­tic bezels to pro­vide the best sim­u­lated G1000 pan­els avail­able on the mar­ket!  A key fea­ture is the abil­ity to per­form WAAS approaches, and it sim­u­lates the Garmin GFC 700 autopi­lot.   The RC-1000 also includes the required back-up instru­men­ta­tion for real­is­tic train­ing.  The RC-1000 pro­vides 8–9 times more func­tion­al­ity than Mindstar-based G-1000 sim­u­la­tors. Using the Lock­heed Mar­tin® Prepar3D™ visual, you’ll be fly­ing the RC-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. Like the G1000, this sys­tem pro­vides train­ing for sim­ple and com­plex air­craft, and single-engine and twin engine air­craft!  The sim­u­lated G1000 soft­ware changes ref­er­ence speeds, engine/propeller instru­men­ta­tion, and fuel man­age­ment depend­ing on the air­craft selected.

This proven, high fidelity G1000 sim­u­la­tion soft­ware pro­vides about 85% of real G1000 functionality—far and away more than lesser sim­u­la­tions.  Here are some of the fea­tures that sep­a­rate the PI-1000 from its competitors:

  1. Updatable worldwide Navigraph navigation database
  2. Obstacle icons, terrain, airways, and waypoints on the map page
  3. VNAV and VPTH waypoint navigation
  4. Departure and arrival procedures
  5. LPV WAAS Approaches fully coupled with the Automated Flight Control System
  6. Missed approach procedures
  7. Coupled holds and procedure turns

Features are continuously added for even more functionality.

The RC-1000 is an FAA Approved Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) with a ver­sa­tile air­craft platform—singles and a twin, sim­ple and com­plex air­craft can all be flown.
