We are very excited to announce the arrival of our 2nd simulator from Alsim called the AL172. We have dedicated a space for our 2 room-sized simulators which we call a flight simulation “laboratory”. Simulation at this level in general aviation is unharnessed and relatively new. Compared with the airlines and the military, we in GA don’t utilize simulation to its fullest potential like we should. Our Sim lab experiments have produced incredible results – and we are eager to share them with you!
We have several paired students going through an experimental process to see how much can be absorbed in simulators BEFORE ever arriving to the airplane. We will share results as we continue to compile them, but suffice it to say that we can definitely see increased efficiency, faster understanding, and a much better experience once in the airplane when people have started their training in a simulator.
As Cirrus brings these tools to Sarasota, we are interested in getting access out to the local aviation community. We have created a Monthly Sim Membership just for this reason. There will be more information to come, but this limited monthly program will officially launch next month, in December. We are taking pre-enrollment now, by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There’s no obligation at this point, but we will close off enrollment to ensure there is enough space for everyone to be able to reserve.
We’ll talk more about details next week, in the meantime if you’re interested send us an email and we can hold your spot.
As always, more to come!
