The simulator training exercises have been designed to fly
20 hrs on Single Engine Simulator and 10
hrs on Twin Engine Simulator. Before commencement of flying
training on actual aircraft, the students are trained on
simulators. They start with basic checks, familiarization
with instrumentation on board and approved procedures. The
simulator flying exercises progress concurrently with actual
aircraft flying training exercises.
Bad weather and
Emergency conditions and possible technical snags in
actual aircraft flying can be generated on simulators to
make our students more confident to face such eventualities.
The simulators have proved to be a powerful training aid for certain
exercises which may be quite risky or not possible at all on actual aircraft.
In simulators, the students do not need to wait for bad weather season to gain
experience under such conditions. The simulator training thoroughly
covers emergency procedures and equips with advanced professional skills as
demanded by the growing industry.
