The ELITE C208B Grand Caravan Training Device is a single or dual seat, autopilot and G1000 replica equipped Flight Simulation Training Device capable of representing all aspects of the operational envelope.
The ELITE C208B Grand Caravan AATD Flight Deck contains the following:
• - Controls: Realistic Dual control Yokes, Rudder Pedals and Throttle quadrant. The Yokes have a force feedback system installed.
• - Avionics: The G1000 Aviation component replica which functions almost exactly the same as the real G1000 ensures maximum transfer of learning and muscle memory retention but at a fraction of the cost. ELITE is also able to produce accurate steam gauge configurations if so required.
• - Force Feedback: Force-feedback on the Dual Yoke ensures accurate feel to the control surfaces with changes in airspeed and weight configurations, resulting in a realistic control feel, which adds to the development of muscle memory and rapid emersion into the simulation scenario.
• - Aerodynamics: ELITE makes use of the X-Plane software platform which with its open software philosophy allows data packages to be manipulated extremely accurately, thus ensuring a very accurate aerodynamic and realistic feel during flight. Our flight model software for the Cessna 208B Grand Caravan also developed with the aid of feedback from Cessna pilots to ensure an accurate flight model.
• - Cockpit enclosure; The ELITE C208B enclosure consists of a Fiberglass shell which has been built to replicate the exact same shape and dimensions of the actual aircraft.
