The Avionics System Trainer is a computer-based pilot training for the avionics currently in the Cirrus SR20/SR22. This single-screen desktop training tool teaches pilots the concepts, terminology, and procedures required to confidently manage automation in these technically advanced aircraft.
The interactive courseware immerses pilots in a series of guided lessons, practice, and evaluation scenarios bringing them to a level of demonstrated proficiency with the aircraft’s avionics.
The Avionics System Trainer simulates the Avidyne Primary Flight Display, and Multi-function Display, Garmin GNS 430 GPS, Autopilot (S-Tec System 55X), Transponder, TAWS, XM Weather, Standby Instruments, and the Flight Director. Each system is fully integrated and interactive. Because this is a true free-play device, a variety of training scenarios and flight plans can be followed allowing pilots to practice the entire flight cycle, with user inputs producing the same real-time feedback as in the actual aircraft.
The AST combines interactive courseware with simulations to introduce the glass cockpit to SR20/SR22 pilots in a fully interactive training environment. A series of guided lessons combined with practice scenarios brings pilots to a level of demonstrated proficiency with the aircraft’s avionics.
