Elite Simulation Solutions will be supplying one of its advanced PI-135 BATD simulators to Jamaica's Aeronautical School of the West Indies (ASWI). Working with trainee pilots across the Caribbean, the addition of this new simulator will provide authentic, real-world training across a wide range of single and multi engine aircraft.

The BATD simulator is certified by the FAA and offers exceptional realism, incorporating authentic flight deck components such as panels, controls and instrumentations, including replica GTN750 GPS units. To create the most realistic visuals, the PI-135 uses a curved visual screen that is combined with the Lockheed Martin P3 image generator.

One of the most popular features is its ability to replicate a range of models, including the Piper Archer III and Arrow IV, Beech Baron 58 and Bonanza A36, Cessna 172R, 172S and 182S, King Air B200, Mooney M20J and Piper Seneca III.

ASWI co-founder Gari-Paul Tomlinson says: "We are really excited to be adding the PI-135 simulator to our range here at the Aeronautical School of the West Indies. Elite's reputation for quality, authenticity and realism is renowned, and we are confident that this addition is going to help elevate students' learning, allowing them to progress and practise their skills."

Rene Huddlestone, director of marketing and sales at Elite, adds: "Our PI-135 BATD simulator is one of our most popular models, and it is fantastic that the Aeronautical School of the West Indies has chosen it to be part of its training programme. Our team will be working closely with the team at ASWI to ensure smooth installation and setup, giving students the chance to start benefiting from the simulator straight away."
