Developed over 20 years ago, ELITE revolutionized the way pilots train all over the world by using the power of the personal computer. From beginning instrument students to ATPs, ELITE provides a professional flight simulation environment where and when you are ready to train. Whether the aircraft is simple, complex, high performance, multi-engine piston or turboprop, ELITE has the necessary detail to provide a superior training experience. All switches, knobs, buttons and levers, are fully functional allowing complete start-up to shutdown, as well as emergency procedural practice. Each photo realistic aircraft cockpit panel is a beautifully rendered, high-resolution replica of that found in the actual aircraft. All avionics and associated instrumentation, including the GPS, function exactly as their real world counterpart. ELITE is not just a basic IFR simulator, but a complete training platform.
