Ed Kennedy - Cleveland, TN



 

 

Ed Kennedy recently took delivery of a DCX MAX ProMotion AATD flight training system for his home-based training center.

"The DCX MAX with ProMotion motion base is an ideal platform to maximize training experience toward any pilot certificate or rating being sought.  The system is a fantastic and efficient way to maintain currency and proficiency after the rating is earned.  The wide variety of aircraft models available to train with and the accuracy of aircraft performance make this AATD very cost effective and second to none in value.  The simulator is very cost effective for flight schools and active freelance instructors alike.  The entire staff at Precision Flight Controls is great to work with before, during, and after the sale"

Medallion Foundation - Alaska



 

 

The Medallion Foundation maintains a fleet of Precision Flight Controls' simulators at ten locations throughout the state of Alaska.  The simulators are made available to operators under the direction of the Medallion Foundation Star and Shield program.  These systems are mainly used by members of the Alaska Air Carriers Association (AACA) for accident prevention training (CFIT), by CFI's for flight training, and by private and commercial pilots for instrument proficiency and currency.  

According to Medallion's Simulator Manager, Glen Morthorpe, "Precision Flight Controls' simulators were chosen because of their exceptional affordability and reliablity.  I have worked with many advanced simulators at the airlines and consider PFC's simulators to have fidelity that is nearly as good".

Orizon Aviation Québec - Québec City, Canada



 

 

Orizon Aviation Québec is the proud owner of a new Precision Flight Controls' DCX MAX cockpit flight training system.  The DCX MAX has been optioned with the new Panoramax (5 X 40") Visual System.  This system is the first of its kind in Canada and was recently approved by Transport Canada as a Level 2 Flight Training Device (FTD).  The system also met the additional requirements for certification for instrument renewals on four different aircraft models, the Piper Seneca V, the Cessna 172, the Pilatus PC12, and the Beechraft King Air B200.

"The DCX MAX will be used for basic and advanced flight training (high altitude transition, GPS-RNAV, emergency procedures, introduction to turbine engines, air interview preparation, etc...)  In addition, it is the first simulator to be approved in Québec City.  We want to offer an IFR renewal service for all of eastern Québec province, including the beautiful city of Québec.  With approval of the PC-12 and B200 turboprop, we are the only flight school to offer advanced training on complex aircraft", offered Roger Samson, Operations Manager for the school.  "The DCX MAX is very easy to use and the Precision Flight Controls' team is very competent.  We certainly intend to cultivate our business relationship with this company and invest more in the near future.  We are very proud and happy to contribute to the success of our pilots.  Thanks to the DCX MAX, we have raised the bar!"

SimCheck International - Sacramento, CA



 

 

SimCheck International has used PFC Simulators for their advanced simulator-based flight training for over 4 years.  These simulators have amazing capability and provide an outstanding platform for their pilot clients who consist primarily of professional pilots and flight crews. 

"The PFC Modular Flight Deck Turboprop B-200 has been the core simulator for our training.  We use highly advanced scenarios that require a simulator with advanced navigation capabilities, superior fidelity and visuals, and outstanding reliability.  The PFC Sim’s have continued to improve over the years and we have been able to develop and teach the most demanding and realistic scenarios using these Simulators" offers SimCheck International's Director of Training, Juan Mendez.  A recent client, a retired B-767 Captain who completed the initial course for the King Air C90, remarked after a session, “I feel like I just got out of the sim at American”.
