Piper Aircraft M600 factory training provider Legacy Flight Training has added a Frasca M600/SLS simulator that uses an actual fuselage, pilot seating, sub-panels, switching, and flight controls that enables real-world, model specific training. Legacy Flight Training—which has centers in Vero Beach, Florida, and Scottsdale, Arizona—is Piper’s exclusive training provider for the M600.
The new training device, which came online earlier this month at Legacy’s Vero Beach center, features Garmin G3000 avionics with Piper’s HALO safety system (which includes Garmin Autoland), in-flight stability protection, level mode, and autothrottle system. It also has a multi-channel projection system with wrap-around visuals.
“Piper has always held safety at the forefront of our culture and our products,” said Piper Aircraft v-p of sales, marketing and customer support Ron Gunnarson. “Piper was the first OEM to certify Autoland in a general aviation aircraft, it is fitting that we have a device that can further enhance safety by providing customers with a high fidelity, realistic training environment.”
