Flight Schools need simulators with either an AATD or a BATD equivalent certification. We can deliver simulators, certifiable to DGCA or FAA standards. When approved, the simulator may be used to log a maximum of 20 hours toward instrument rating. The same simulators may be used for ground school, in an integrated training curriculum. The simulator may be configured either for single engine, or multi engine, analog (traditional) or glass (advanced) cockpits. The advanced SE cockpit features a Garmin G1000.
Cockpit Live ShareTM is an innovation from FlightrixTM, which has been conceived after discussions with highly experienced civilian and Indian Air Force flight instructors.
Typically, an instructional session can support only up to two cadets, and one instructor: be it in the real airplane or in a flight simulator. This prevents other students from observing an instructional flight. However, learning through observation is a very powerful technique which is used by all airlines today under several synonymous names, such as "Supernumery (Supy)", "Line Oriented Flight Training (LOFT)".
Cockpit Live ShareTM allows for numerous students to "share" the simulator. One student/cadet flies the simulator, under observation and guidance from a instructor. Eight other students / cadets have their own instruments displayed, which duplicate what is seen by the cadet in the simulator. In effect, nine students pick up procedures, systems and instruments in one shot, progressively reducing the time taken to train every student. This results in tangible savings: in both time and money.
With optional duplicated external visuals, and optional controls for every such student observer, in effect, nine students can fly the simulator in one go, with the instructor randomly selecting a student to take over and complete the flight procedure. This keeps students on their toes, introduces them early to situation awareness, and the importance of communications : a must for crew resource management.
