Avidyne Entegra Student Simulator

Master the Avidyne Entegra Glass Flight Deck System on the Ground ... By Practicing the Same Way You’ll Use it In the Air

The acclaimed Avidyne Entegra flight deck system brings integrated flight deck technology into the cockpits of retrofitted business and general aviation aircraft.

The Flight1 Aviation Technologies Avidyne Entegra Student Simulator provides individual pilots and flight schools with Entegra avionics training in a realistic, dynamic simulation environment. It's a software add-on for Microsoft® Flight Simulator 2004 and Flight Simulator X. (Support for Lockheed Martin® Prepar3D™ is coming soon.) It’s so realistic, in fact, that it’s endorsed by Avidyne.

If you’re new to flying Technologically Advanced Aircraft (TAA) equipped with complex glass avionics like the Entegra, you’ll want to:


  1. Learn the aircraft systems and basic avionics via books, manuals, videos, part-task trainers, or online courseware.
  2. Learn your way around the PFD/MFD glass avionics environment using a part-task trainer like our FITS-accepted Entegra EXP5000 PFD Courseware, or the Entegra Freeplay Simulator available from Avidyne.
  3. Use a flight simulator or flight training device to master using the avionics in the context of realistic flight scenarios.
  4. Transfer all of your new skills to a real airplane.

Many students and flight schools skip over Step 3—flight simulation—because they can’t afford an Avidyne-based flight simulator

That’s unfortunate, because simulation is one of the most effective ways to engage in Scenario-Based Training (SBT) and develop Single-Pilot Resource Management (SRM) skills. SBT and SRM are two of the core tenets of the new FAA/Industry Training Standards (FITS), which have been proven to develop safer, more proficient pilots.

The Avidyne Entegra Student Simulator is for you if you are:

  • A flight school owner or manager. The Entegra Student Simulator, VISPRO, Scenario Builder, FSX or Prepar3D and cockpit hardware can be combined to build a cost-effective simulator that can provide a far more immersive experience than a stand-alone Entegra avionics simulation.
  • An independent flight or ground instructor. The Entegra Student Simulator combined with VISPRO gives you the ability to train students on the ground just like you would in an airplane, at a lower cost to students, and with greater flexibility.
  • A student pilot, a private pilot, or a commercial pilot. Combine the Entegra Student Simulator with Flight Simulator 2004 or Flight Simulator X and you’ll have an effective environment in which to learn and master this complex technology—for a fraction of what it would cost to practice in your own aircraft or in a rental.
