Swiss12 AATD training device gets FAA approval

one-G simulation has received the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Letter of Authorization (LOA) for the Swiss12 Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD), a new training platform based on the Pilatus PC-12.  

Like one-G’s line of other FAA approved AATD’s, the Swiss12 is model specific, emulating the precise flight characteristics, instrumentation, and cockpit ergonomics of the Pilatus PC-12. The Swiss12 is a cost effective platform for both recreational and commercial operators of this aircraft type.

The Swiss12 was developed within one-G’s Creative Solutions Studio as a custom commissioned project. Meeting the objective of improving and reducing the cost of a Part 135 operator’s training program, one-G developed this model specific device to enable the operator to perform pilot and crew training at their own location. By doing so, the operator may meet FAA requirements and improve overall pilot proficiency and safety while simultaneously minimizing out of state travel costs.

one-G created the Swiss12 to satisfy the need for a feature-rich, model specific training device that is faithful to the Pilatus PC-12, and has done so at a prudent price point. “Now pilots and Part 135 operators of this aircraft have a new choice for training, and no longer need to rely solely on annual recurrent programs and expensive in-aircraft training to remain proficient,” said Xylon Saltzman, CEO of one-G simulation. “With the Swiss12 we are enabling pilots of this demanding, high performance aircraft with a sensible platform that places them firmly in control of their training.”

The Swiss12 is in production and available for order now. one-G simulation is also accepting proposals for additional aircraft simulation or software only training solutions.
