Software That Needs No Apologies
Each Enterprise G1000 Simulator features an aircraft-specific simulation of Garmin’s G1000. We use a proprietary software platform that replicates the G1000’s features and functionality with exacting detail. If it’s in the real G1000, it’s in the sim. Instead of being distracted by differences, students can train just like they fly, using features like synthetic terrain, charts, taxi charts, ADS-B, TAWS, VNAV, and WAAS. How closely does the Cirrus Enterprise G1000 Simulator match the real thing? Watch this video
to see for yourself.
Hardware that Looks, Feels, and Functions Like the Real Thing
The first thing you notice about any sim is the hardware. The hardware components of our Enterprise G1000 simulators are aircraft-specific, work just like their real-world counterparts, and are engineered for heavy use by multiple users. Fully functional buttons and knobs build muscle memory and minimize negative transfer of skill. There’s no new interface to learn in the sim (and no new interface to forget in the airplane).
Aircraft Performance Based on Real-world Specs
The best avionics and hardware can’t make up for unrealistic flight dynamics. Put simply: a simulator should fly just like the airplane it’s simulating. We meticulously develop the flight model for each of our simulated aircraft based on the real aircraft’s performance specifications. It’s an art as well as a science, and our customers appreciate the effort we make to get it right.
A Visual Simulation for VFR, IFR, and Everything In Between
Our visual simulation provides much more than “eye-candy.” It simulates the entire environment a pilot operates in: the airports, the terrain, and the sky. From short flights around a pattern to long-distance navigation between any two airports in the world, it supports every VFR or IFR training scenario you could dream up. The view out the window includes the entire planet—more than 24,900 airports, a modifiable real-time weather system, continuous time of day, seasons, and a variety of lighting effects.
An Instructor Station Overflowing with Features
Our Instructor/Operator Station (IOS) gives instructors professional-quality tools for monitoring, instruction, and analysis during a training session. Our proprietary software lets you control the simulation’s environment, change the weather, reposition the student’s aircraft, and trigger malfunctions. Features include a touchscreen optimized interface, a moving map display, and a sophisticated flight data recorder that records all aspects of a flight for playback, graphing, and debriefing.
