1530 – 1830 Sim Brief and Simulator Training (IFR day)

Aircraft systems training both in and out of the class was intense, in-depth and covered all of the usual suspects which included fuel, hydraulics, power plant, avionics, autopilots, drive train, as well as the brain drainer of all classes, the S76 electrical system. With 2 DC generators, 1 AC generator, 2 inverters, 4 DC buses, 5 AC buses and a circuit breaker panel as big as a Pachinko board, a cold beer at the end of the day is the only thing that can relieve the stress and pain of that complicated topic! Despite the complexity of the S76 systems, FlightSafety instructors masterfully inte- grate their personal experience with physical aircraft components and computer technology to give the client a well rounded and simplified view of the sys- tems.

The creative use of technology is really what makes FlightSafety training stand out from the rest of the mortal flight training world. Four distinct areas which were most noticeable were in dynamic PowerPoint pre- sentations, computers in the classroom, state of the art full motion flight simulators, and last but not least, the Graphical Flight Simulator, aka GFS. The GFS is an amazing new procedures training aid which allows clients to sit in a computer generated cockpit environment and perform many procedures from start up to emergencies. Additionally, the GFS can be used to practice instrument flying procedures.
