Introduction

Aircraft simulators or flight simulators try to replicate and reproduce the experience of flying an aircraft. They are now extensively used in the aviation industry for design and development and the training of air crew for both civil and military aircraft.Aircraft simulators have proven to be an essential element for flight training for individual general aviation pilots and airline flight crew.Flight simulation involves the representation in a simulator environment of the flight and systems characteristics of an aircraft.

Purpose and form

The primary purpose of flight simulation is to train a pilot to achieve, test, and maintain proficiency in the operation of an airplane without risk to person or property and at a lower cost to training in the air.

Major Advantages as a training device

Flight simulators are used as a training device because of their overall effectiveness and efficiency in training pilots.

Some of the advantages of using flight simulators include the following:

  • Permit novice pilots to experience simulated flight without risk to him or her or to valuable aircraft.
  • Availability – that is, flight simulation is not dependent on particular environmental conditions (good weather), or availability of a real aircraft. Correspondingly, it is possible to generate particular conditions without them having to be sought out in the real world.
  • Accessibility – simulation does not require a full flight progression (pre-flight, take-off, flight, landing, post-flight), but permits repeated practice of a particular stage of flight, such as an ILS approach.
  • Cost-effectiveness – savings in crew time, fuel, maintenance to real aircraft, revenue that would be lost using a real aircraft, and environmental impact.

About Smart Fly – Advent

This is also called as Aviation training Device with high performance single piston engine aircrafts mainly representing Cessna 172, Cessna 152 & Cessna 177RG(Retractable gear) . Major features include 140Deg Horizontal Field of View (FOV), High definition synthetic instrument gauges with silky smooth response which aids for accurate training. Major attraction is this simulator is equipped with Garmin type GPS (G500model) which helps to learn about flying on GPS and has HD terrain warning display.

Simulator include latest state of art Instructor operating station which challenges the students ability and has following major features like Live tracking map, Nav waypoints as per real world data, Weather control, ILS CAT1 to CAT3 visibility setting, Set the season , day/night flying, Failure of engines, instruments, etc.
