Full Motion Simulator
Do you know how to recover from this situation?
Flight Level Aviation is pleased to
announce a half-day upset recovery and introductory aerobatics
course utilizing our full-motion simulator. This course
may be scheduled as a standalone or may be added on to IFR recurrent
training or type-specific Cessna 210 or Bonanza Training. The
course is taught by Paul Dawson, CFII, an aeronautical engineer and
experienced instrument instructor who has a particular interest in
This course utilizes custom motion software specifically written for
Flight Level Aviation to work with the highly acclaimed
X-Plane software package.
With this unique system you can:
- Explore unusual attitudes in
both VMC and IMC conditions
- Recover from unusual attitudes
with both full and partial instrument panels
- Explore stall/spin
characteristics with varying centers of gravity and aircraft
- Experience basic aerobatic
maneuvers including loops, rolls, spins, and wingovers
- For advanced students or
homebuilt pilots -- Design your own airfoil with
X-Plane and bring it to our
full-motion simulator to fly it in full motion!
Note: This course offers
an introduction to upset recovery and aerobatics and includes
training in techniques which cannot be safely taught in an airplane.
It is quite realistic. However, with the aeroabatics flight
model used in the simulator you cannot log this as aerobatic
flight time; it is considered to be ground training only. This
is meant to supplement airplane-based training and is NOT
meant to qualify a pilot for solo aerobatics in an actual airplane.
That said, the course should be of considerable interest to pilots
of all experience levels, including both those who have never
attempted aerobatics up through experienced aerobatic pilots.
