Ron Emond is always looking for ways to improve the education and the value proposition for Air Direct Airways students. And like most aviation companies, partnerships play a part in their success.
An important part of that strategy is to ensure that each of the aircraft models on the flight line are also available to fly “virtually” in their XSPEC 142 simulator. This arrangement is made possible because of the relationship between Air Direct Airways, the Nashua Pilot Shop, and XSPEC Aviation Flight Training Simulators.
Targeting the Problem Areas
“The biggest advantage of this sim is that you can re-set at the point a student is having a problem. If a student is having difficulty with a part of an ILS approach, as an example, the student can practice a maneuver 20 times in an hour, as opposed to shooting just 3 or 4 approaches in the actual aircraft.”
Students can also save files and share specific scenarios with an instructor.
