The ELITE iGATE series is a range of technically advanced digital flight training systems designed around ELITE IFR simulation software and the iGATE panel designed by Elite Simulation Solutions. For complete mouse-free operation the FTD (Flight Training Device) comes equipped with a full size replica dashboard, digital LED avionics panel, single or dual heavy duty yoke mechanism and fully integrated knobs and switches.

Another exciting feature is the modular concept of the iGATE AATD. For instance the customer can choose a King Air specific layout, a single engine cockpit layout, and/or a twin engine layout such as the Seneca III on the same flight training device. Because the iGATE is designed for future upgrading owners can later on extend a single pilot iGATE system to a twin pilot iGATE system. Additional optional upgrades feature full size cockpit enclosures and external visual systems.

The iGATE FTD is approved in the USA by the FAA under AC61-136 as an advanced ATD as well as by the Australian CASA FSD as Synthetic Training Device CAT B.

THE iGATE AATD features the latest digital technology and crystal clear LCD displays. These cutting-edge devices uitilize precisely modeled flight dynamics with no analog instruments to calibrate, wear out, or break. Train with accurate cockpit detail for maximum training transference from aircraft systems and avionics to navigation and flight procedures. Multiple aircraft models for training on simple, high performance or twin engine aircraft. On a single trainer, train on advanced avionics such as HSIs, RMIs, flight directors and GPS. Separate graphical instructor's station with print (printer not included) and record capability, comprehensive failure modes & weather modeling. Great for flight schools, FBOs, college flight labs and corporate flight departments. Whether teaching students, pre-hire evaluations or just maintaining proficiency, the iGATE will give you maximum return on your investment.
