O simulátoru Cessna 172S FNPT II G1000

Simulator rental - conditions

The partner flight schools can use the Cessna 172SP FNPT II G1000 simulator for their training under a dry lease agreement with BLUE SKY AVIATION.
We provide partner flight schools with:

  • Training of the personnel of partner flight schools.
  • Instructor service for all types of training on this simulator Cessna 172SP FNPT II G1000.
  • Professional assistance and necessary facilities for instructors and students of partner flight schools.
  • 24/7 help link service of expert maintenance staff.

Use of the simulator for the public

The Cessna 172S FNPT II G1000 simulator can be used to train pilots for the Private Pilot’s License (PPL), Instrument Rating (IR), Commercial Pilot’s License (CPL) or already licensed pilots, who wish to upgrade their EFIS rating (Electronic Flight Information System, Elektronický letový informační systém) and IR/PBN procedures, complete Garmin G1000 system difference training or gain proficiency in the operation of the Garmin GFC700 autopilot, or learn emergency procedures for a VFR pilot flying into IMC conditions.

Technical specification

Meet the Cessna 172S FNPT II G1000 simulator

The simulator includes a cockpit that represents a Cessna C172SP aircraft, a parabolic projection screen with a 270-degree view that delivers a true-to-life perception of IMC flight conditions. It also includes an instructor station where the instructor can comprehensively control simulation conditions for the student including weather, flight procedures, and abnormal and emergency procedures.

The simulator incorporates a Garmin G1000 avionics module that offers all the capabilities of a real aircraft. Thus, it is possible to train both classical IFR navigation according to HSI, RMI and ADF/NDB and to use modern technology associated with GPS SBAS navigation according to Flight Director and the use of autopilot.

The electrical system of the simulator is a faithful copy of the real aircraft, including all backup systems. It includes Avionics Bus 1 and Bus 2, Standby Battery, eletric and manual trim. PFD (Primary flight display) and MFD (Multifunction display) can be used to simulate faults and can be switched to Reversionary backup mode. These functions can be used to simulate a wide range of electrical, navigation system, or powerplant failures and thus prepare the future pilot for emergency situations on the ground during training, as some failures and their combinations cannot be simulated in the aircraft. Even small details such as circuit breakers are fully functional and affect the function of the entire simulator as in a real aircraft. Of course, the navigation database is regularly updated.

From start-up to shut-down, the simulator is an exact replica and simulation of the Cessna C172S with Garmin G1000 avionics. Proper ergonomics and identical placement of all switches as in a real aircraft make this simulator absolutely the most advanced device in its class.

The simulator offers an exceptionally wide range of settings from weather – cloud cover, precipitation, visibility, icing conditions, turbulence and wind, through all the navigation procedures of classic IFR navigation, which completely correspond to real geographical positions. Through the aforementioned instructor station, the instructor can control all these parameters and thus simulate various emergency situations in flight that are not possible or appropriate to simulate in the aircraft. This includes the simulation of a giant range of abnormal, emergency situations and fault simulations. Control of the simulator via the ram interface provides feedback including forces in the control dependent on the dynamic pressure on the aircraft. The 270-degree viewing angle canvas allows for a perfect immersion of real flight and therefore, for example, when flying into IMC conditions, you really experience a sensation very similar to real flight.

The simulator also includes a Garmin GFC700 digital integrated autopilot, which is an integral part of the avionics and which the pilot learns to operate during training. The pan-European airport database includes topographic and elevation interfaces and some airports enjoy a faithful 3D model.

Why is it a good idea to take IR training on EFIS technology?

Flying IFR procedures in a cockpit equipped with alarms and needles has a certain charm and nowadays a bit of nostalgia, but any pilot seeking an IR licence, whether for private transport or heading to a commercial airline, should be trained to the latest standards and approaches to technology. Currently, airlines require or prefer so-called EFIS time in pilot training, i.e. the portion of training completed on EFIS (Electronic Flight Information System) technology, as all transport aircraft are EFIS technology equipped. It is much easier for a student to transition to advanced EFIS technology in a transport aircraft, in which he/she is already quite naturally familiar because he/she is used to it from the beginning of the training, including IFR flight procedures.
