About Turbine Training Center — Air Tractor & Beechcraft King Air Pilot Training Facility

Who We Are

Turbine Training Center in Manhattan, KS is a unique training facility for pilots and operators of the Air Tractor 402/502/602/802/802A models and Beechcraft King Air 90/100/200 and 300 series aircraft.

Initial and recurrent courses are taught by professional instructors, who are high-time Air Tractor and King Air pilots themselves.

Training begins in the classroom but then moves to our full-motion simulator for the reality-based flight training for which the Turbine Training Center and GATTS, Inc., our sister company, are known.

Turbine Training Center (Manhattan, Kansas)

Where We Are

We are centrally located in the beautiful flint hills of Manhattan, KS. Located approximately 120 miles west of Kansas City, Manhattan, is best known for being the home of Kansas State University. Immediately to the west of Manhattan is Fort Riley. Fort Riley is home of America’s Finest Fighting Force, The 1st Infantry Division (Big Red One).

Our central location, coupled with daily flights on American Eagle from Dallas and Chicago, make getting to Manhattan easy!

Where We Came From

Over the years, the trend in the industry has been moving away from piston engine spray planes toward the more modern and powerful turbine-powered aircraft. With this, many ag pilots have found themselves somewhat “behind the power curve.”

It was in this arena that Turbine Training Center first began providing turbine transition programs not only to ag pilots but other, soon-to-be turbine pilots as well.

Although TTC still provides turbine transition training to ag pilots, for more than a decade we have focused the majority of our attention on initial and recurrent training for Air Tractor and King Air pilots as well as adding jump pilot training and CAMTS Accreditation.
