Legacy Flight Training, an exclusive factory training provider for the M600, has taken delivery of a Frasca M600/SLS simulator from Piper Aircraft. Training using the new type specific device began on 1 February.

The flight simulator uses a Piper sourced M600 fuselage, pilot seating, sub panels, switching and flight controls that enable real world, model specific training for all M600 aircraft. The Frasca built training device features M600 type specific Garmin G3000 avionics with Piper's HALO safety system, inflight stability protection, level mode and auto throttle system. The simulator also features a multi-channel projection system with wrap around visuals, creating a realistic training experience.

“We have always held safety at the forefront of our culture and our products,” says Ron Gunnarson, Piper Aircraft VP of sales, marketing and customer support. “Piper was the first OEM to certify Autoland in a general aviation aircraft, so it is fitting that we have a device that can further enhance safety by providing customers with a high fidelity, realistic training environment.”

“Having representative simulators allows pilots to achieve a higher level of knowledge, readiness and safety than with ground and flight training alone,” adds Bill Inglis, owner of Legacy Flight Training. “We continue to invest in making sure Piper owners are able to step into their new aircraft, year after year, being able to take advantage of all the benefits their Piper offers them safely.”

Headquartered in Vero Beach, Florida, Legacy Flight Training is owned and operated by Bill and Diane Inglis. Since 2010, the company has provided expert Piper-focused ground, simulator and flight training at its state-of-the-art training centres, at Vero Beach Regional airport and at Scottsdale airport in Arizona. Recurrent, in-aircraft training is also available at Legacy Flight Training in Sun Valley, Idaho. Legacy Flight Training is a Piper authorised training provider for all factory-new aircraft and the exclusive Piper authorised training provider for the M600.
