Daher has designated SimCom as a factory-approved training organisation for its Kodiak 100 and Kodiak 900 turboprop-powered aircraft, with courses beginning next month at the company's Scottsdale, Arizona training centre. A fixed-based Kodiak flight simulator, built by Frasca International, will be installed at the facility and, in addition to courses provided for new and current owners/operators, training will be tailored for Kodiak users in this multi-role aircraft's special mission applications.
“Our decision was based on several factors, including SimCom's 24 year relationship with Daher for our TBM turboprop-powered aircraft product line and its resources to provide top level training in adding the Kodiak to its portfolio,” says Daher SVP and Kodiak Aircraft CEO Nicolas Chabbert.
CEO Eric Hinson adds: “We're proud to be Daher's factory-approved training partner for its entire family of turboprop aircraft. Our Scottsdale, Arizona training centre provides a strategically positioned location for Kodiak operators throughout the Americas.”
SimCom has a long history of providing tailored training for owner/pilots, delivering instruction for more than 60 different aircraft types and conducting 7,000-plus training events annually.
