Tough Decision On Including GPS
The Galvin Flight
School will be taking delivery of a Frasca 142 simulator in early
June 2004, the only one of it's kind. The Frasca allows pilots the
option of using a KLN-94 or Garmin 430 GPS.
"We struggled with the GPS decision on the simulator," notes
Nick Frisch, Galvin Flight School Manager. "We have a fleet of
airplanes equipped with IFR GPS's and we've considered the GPS the
primary navigation system for several years. But with the Cessna
172's and 182's having the KLN-94's and the 172P's, Seminoles,
Bonanza and Diamonds being Garmin-equipped, we faced a real dilemma
in how to equip the simulator. The way you train is the way you
fly, so we wanted to offer familiar GPS equipment in the
Frasca sales representative Chuck Robards and Vice President
John Frasca were sympathetic to Frisch's concerns. "Nick was
persistent in asking for 2 GPS's, and we found a way to deliver,"
sys Chuck. "We are very pleased to be able to offer this
configuration as an offer to our customers."
The Galvin Flight School is a Part-141 and VA-approved training
facility, and plans to use the simulator in instrument,
multi-engine and ATP training.
