For some pilots, simulator training is not a viable option. Many older or discontinued King Air models are not represented by simulator manufactures or training centers.
Experienced King Air pilots alternate between simulator and actual aircraft training
The most common option is to train in a different King Air simulator and then do “differences” training on your make and model. Even if the correct simulator is available, some pilots prefer to train in their own airplane because they are not comfortable with the “feel” of a simulator.
Many experienced King Air pilots alternate between simulator based training and actual aircraft training. This typically saves thousands of dollars a year in training costs.
We offer an insurance approved alternative to simulator-based training by using your aircraft and our individualized training syllabus. It is the same training program we use in our simulator but we have modified it to safely meet the demands of in aircraft training.
