S823 FNPT II Diamond DA-42

  • The ELITE Evolution S823 DA42 FNPT II Flight Simulation Training Device is a single seat, autopilot and original Garmin G1000® equipped Flight Simulation Training Device capable of representing almost all aspects of the operational envelope.
  • The type representative nature, combined with the accuracy of the hardware and software, allows for comprehensive aircraft training to be conducted in the device using in most cases the factory Flight Crew Operating Manual for flight and ground training as well in most cases the actual checklists and Quick Reference Handbooks.
  • The provided Instructor Operating Station is ergonomically laid-out to allow observation of flight deck activity. The Instructor Operating Station software allows for an intuitive manipulation of aircraft systems and failures with customizable event triggers. The instructor can trigger an event immediately, after a predetermined interval of time, or even randomly between two periods of time.
  • In addition, ground operations training can be executed by utilizing the highly accurate 3D airport add-on sceneries. By adding this option, the actual airport being replicated is closely matched, so that actual airport diagrams can be used in training. Pilots will find runways, taxiways, buildings, jet-ways, pads, hangars, etc. correctly placed. Runway and taxiway signs, as well as airport markings, are also detailed and accurate. Rehearsal and familiarization training of a specific airport is possible by adding either of these options, hereby greatly increasing the transfer of learning to the real world.
  • With systems simulation and integration, practically all phases of ground and flight operations, including normal, abnormal, and emergency scenarios can be trained in detail.
  • A detailed and accurate global Jeppesen Navigation database greatly enhances the mission capability of the device.
  • These features are ideal for IFR and partial VFR training (full VFR training enhanced by adding the optionally available scenery packages).
