FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training is offering Beechcraft King Air 360 pilot training at its Tampa, Florida learning center and maintenance courses for the turboprop twin at its Wichita maintenance learning center. Flight training in Textron Aviation’s newest King Air—announced in August and certified by the FAA earlier this month—is provided in an FAA level-D simulator.
Equipped with an Innovative Solutions & Support ThrustSense autothrottle with VMCa mitigation, the simulator will allow pilots to safely practice engine-failure operations and learn how the autothrottle will help them under such a scenario. Also new on the King Air 360 is digital pressurization, which schedules cabin pressure in climb and descent and decreases pilot workload. A Collins Aerospace Fusion avionics update also includes integration of flap and pressurization system indications into a multifunction display.
“We are pleased to serve as the exclusive training provider for the new King Air 360,” said FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training CEO Rich High. “Pilots and maintenance technicians who operate and support the aircraft benefit from our comprehensive training programs developed in conjunction with Textron Aviation.”
