Finally, a G1000 Simulator that Surpasses Your Expectations

The Flight1 Aviation Technologies Enterprise G1000 Simulator is a turnkey Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) designed to meet the rigorous requirements of flight schools and universities.

Aircraft owners find it’s the perfect tool to maintain their proficiency and is well worth their investment.

Flight schools use it as an integral part of their training programs and love the revenue it generates.

Pilots who train with the Flight1 Tech Enterprise G1000 Simulator can operate single-pilot IFR in high-workload and high-density environments with more confidence.

We currently offer two FAA Approved AATDs:

Additional aircraft are in development.

 

A Design Inspired by ... You

Instead of starting with our big ideas, we started with yours. We asked pilots, instructors, and aviation educators to tell us what their flight schools and university flight programs require in order for a G1000 simulator to be an effective training tool. Here’s what we learned:

  • Aircraft-specific hardware is important. Pilots don’t want generic cockpits—they want yokes/sidesticks, throttle/prop/mixture controls, switches, and knobs that look and feel like what’s in the airplane.
  • Advanced avionics features must be simulated—accurately. Incomplete G1000 simulations that don’t include features like WAAS approaches and VNAV don’t cut it in a training environment.
  • Motion adds little training value. A simulator that moves is impressive, but adds complexity, maintenance frustrations, and distraction—especially when the motion is executed unrealistically.
  • Durability, reliability, and support matter. In a high-volume training environment, a single inoperative sim can cause a bottleneck that takes days, or even weeks, to recover from.
  • Pilots and flight schools want FAA-approved AATDs. Pilots want to be able to use a simulator to log time toward an instrument rating, to maintain IFR currency, to complete most of the tasks in an IPC, and to log time toward the Commercial, CFI, CFII, and ATP certificates.

 


 

 

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 like they fly, using features like synthetic terrain, charts, taxi charts, ADS-B, TAWS, VNAV, and WAAS.

 


 

Hardware that Looks, Feels, and Functions Like the Real Thing

Our hardware components are aircraft-specific, work like their real-world counterparts, and are engineered for heavy use in a commercial environment. The flight controls are not consumer products. With no lag, no null zones, and no slop, students can easily hand fly the most intricate instrument approaches. And there’s no new interface to learn—fully functional buttons and knobs build muscle memory and minimize negative transfer of skill.

 


 

Computing Power that Exceeds the Demand

If the visuals in a flight simulator stutter or lag behind the control inputs, the student will not be able to hand fly the airplane. Instead of trying to squeeze everything out of one computer, we use three high-end computers networked together to share the significant computing power required by our simulators. The result is the same stutter-free experience you have in an 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 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 Like No Other

The Instructor/Operator Station (IOS) included with each Enterprise G1000 Simulator gives instructors professional-quality tools for monitoring, instruction, and analysis during a training session. We developed the software ourselves, and it 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.

 

Support for the Long Haul

We know that when you have students waiting in line to use a sim that doesn’t work, and you can’t get help quickly, it hurts the students, the instructors, and your bottom line. We take great pride in providing customized support that no other company can match.
Our warranty and support plans will keep your software up-to-date and minimize downtime in the event of hardware component malfunctions. We offer easy-to-install software/database/chart updates, remote support, and an online Customer Support Portal.
