Ideal for Flying Club, Training organisation
or Pilot wishing to keep current in 'instrument practice'.
Simulator Access in Scotland for IMC or Instrument Rating currency
a Commercial Pilot with an Instrument Rating I found access to
a flight simulator expensive & not always convenient.
personally found 'flying' a sim was more 'by the numbers' than
is the case in an aircraft (no seat of the pants feel),
as I had never trained on a modern sim & all of my own previous
IR renewals were on a company aircraft.
Major Airport/ATC cut backs, 'Air time' & 'Sim time' becoming
decided to purchase a complete 'Elite pro' P1 - 135 flight simulator
system complete with seperate Radio/Auo Pilot/Navs/GPS stack.
FAA cleared in the States for Pilot Instrument Flight Testing).

Here for an example print out - this was departing Dundee Rnwy
10 into & round the hold once then a procedural ILS to land
have installed it into its own 'cockpit environment' area
of the aircraft on this system have a moving map display adjacent
to the main IF panel
self monitering of situational awareness is easy & helpful
with regards to what is happening during a flight/procedure.
think this is an ideal step before booking an CAA Approved flight
CAA Examiner's time.
my own IF flying is now considerably less since retiring from
AOC Charter work I found the time practising potential routes
and approach techniques saved me a fortune in aircraft hire on
my most recent renewal !
a full UK Database all types of IFR approaches/Sids are available
plus the optional UK scenery pack also added
it is linked to printer therefore a record of approach attempts
inc. ILS profile is also possible - .
types of weather can be programmed in as you require with very
realistic minimums vis (better encountering here than
for real if not current).
available currently on the system are :-
Cessna 172R, Cessna 182S, Cessna 182RG, Piper Archer 111, Mooney
Arrow 1V, Beech Bonanze A36, Socata TB10, Socata TB20
Engine (twins) :- Beech Baron 58 & Seneca 111
Beech King Air 200 sim now up & running
per hour (familiarisation tutorial is included)
this is not a 'game' type of software/ hardware & will only
benefit genuine Pilots.
