Pilot Training and the Cessna Caravan Simulator

When it comes to Cessna 208 training, King Air 90 training, King Air 200 training and King Air 300 training perhaps one of the best things that you can deal with is the use of Flight Simulators!

"What people can't imagine," Jason Wolcott, Vice President of TURBINE TRAINING in Manhattan, Kansas, pointed out, "is how much money can be saved through the use of Flight Simulators."
On a broad scope, savings is only one of the major aspects of using Flight Simulators. But, it truly is a major part. For example, the Turkish Government recently released information that shows that they saved in the neighborhood of $80 million dollars in the year since they installed their flight simulators for the training of military pilots. They approximate that a total of 30,000 hours of actual flight time was converted to Flight Simulation hours, thus accounting for such grandiose saving numbers.

"Our own military is saving a ton of money, too," Dale Wolcott, TURBINE TRAINING's President, pointed out.

To give you some idea how much, Marine pilots being trained at Air Station Beaufort have four Flight Simulators at their disposal, where they save nearly $10,000 per hour when utilizing the Simulators as opposed to having actual "in air" flights.

"As you can imagine," Jason added, "another major advantage of using Flight Simulators is the fact that pilots in training can face emergency type scenarios without putting either themselves or their crafts in real jeopardy."

For the Marine pilots, an especially important part of their training is being able to practice landings and take-offs from an aircraft carrier without actually needing an aircraft carrier. Too, they give pilots an edge in combat, as all of their training doesn't have to occur in the air.

Preparing pilots to face all types of potential emergencies through the use of Flight Simulators is but part of the endeavors of TURBINE TRAINING. As one of the leading cessna training centers in the country, they feature both Initial and Recurrent Training for Cessna Caravan, Cessna 208 training; King Air 90 Training, King Air 200 Training and King Air 300 Training. If you have any questions about the process for receiving TRAINING, contact TURBINE TRAINING at 1-866-335-1224 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Wolcotts and their staff would be happy to assist you in your quest for Initial Training or Recurrent Training regarding Turbine Engines - and will give you the opportunity of being on the cutting edge of training by using their simulators.
