SunState Aviation Flight School at Kissimmee Gateway Airport is introducing pilots to the future of aviation. The school has taken the lead in training pilots to fly technically advanced aircraft.

The FAA-approved G1000 FITS (FAA and industry training standards) program teaches pilots how to transition to aircraft featuring computer screens rather than traditional gauges and dials.

SunState Aviation was recognized by Cessna as the top pilot center in America for training more students than any other flight training center in the country. It has seven Garmin G1000 glass-cockpit-equipped aircraft and is planning to become a completely technically advanced flight school in the near future, a spokesman said.
