Elite Provides King Air B200 Trainer To Mountain Aviation

Will Be Used In Company's Specialized Mountain Approach Training

Mountain Aviation recently installed an Elite iGATE King Air B200 Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) to perform many evaluation and training needs at their busy Part 135 operation.

“This device will be playing many roles within our company,” said Gregg Fahrenbruch, Mountain Aviation’s Chief Executive Officer. “From initial interviews of potential pilot employees, the line-oriented flight training (LOFT) we do throughout the year, our Part 135 training department use, to our internal standard procedures training, we see the trainer as a tool that can take our team members to new levels of competency and confidence.”

Wayne Keyes, Elite’s Director of Business Development, sees these devices—in the hands of owner-operators—to be an important part of their safety management programs. “Insurance carriers recognize exceptional safety programs within flight departments. An AATD like this King Air can provide on-site emergency procedures training, in addition to the instrument procedurals training for which ATDs are mostly known. And with the detailed visual system, Mountain Aviation’s pilots can practice difficult approaches in their mountainous region in a very safe way.”

Mountain Aviation is unique and provides specialized mountain approach training to its flight crews for the Aspen, Eagle, Telluride and Sun Valley markets. In Addition, Mountain Aviation intends to leverage the King Air B200 Trainer for international airport familiarization while conducting worldwide charter flight operations.
