New-generation Flight Training Devices (FTDs) are increasingly valuable in today’s complex flight training environment. To meet this need, ERAU has an extensive “fleet” of simulators, including several FAA-qualified Level 6 FTDs, a FAA Level D Full-Flight Simulator (FFS) and a crosswind trainer.

These training aids enable students to learn aircraft performance, practice Cockpit Resource Management (CRM), experience aerodynamic effects and perform a variety of flight maneuvers in a controlled environment.

Fleet capabilities include: real-time ADS-B traffic, Central Fleet Control, Synthetic Automated Flight Training Environment, Traffic Generation, WAAS functionality, Remote IOS, and Enhanced Data Recording and Export.

Research initiatives may be supported by the following capabilities: data collection and reduction, hardware and software integration, and scenery and ownship development.
