SimCom Training Centers (Booth No. 6656) has partnered with Eclipse Aerospace to provide training in the EA-500 very light jet and will offer training in the JetProp Malibu/Mirage Rocket Engineering conversion. SimCom also has developed a new international operations course.
SimCom training in the Eclipse 500 will begin later this year. Two EA-500 Level-D simulators, originally built by Opinicus, have been relocated to SimCom Orlando and will be used to provide initial and recurrent training. Comprehensive courseware is currently under development. Planned upgrades include the Avio NG 1.7 avionics suite, autopilot enhancement, GPS/Waas and flight into known icing.
SimCom recently added initial and recurrent training in the JetProp DLX conversion using SimCom's Piper Meridian simulator at Orlando.
SimCom has begun to offer a 2.5-hour international operations course for $260 at its Orlando, Glendale and Scottsdale, Ariz., campuses. The course includes all information required to safely conduct international flight operations.
