Company Has Acquired PrestoSIM, Plans Expansion
Training options are set to grow in the DFW area. Wally David,
President and Chief Executive Officer, SimCom Training Centers
(pictured), announced Monday that SimCom has completed the
acquisition of the former PrestoSIM training center located near
the Dallas/Ft. Worth Texas International Airport. SimCom will
greatly expand the former PrestoSIM operations by updating the
existing simulators and adding new flight training devices and
training courseware. Many of the existing staff will be retained by
SimCom, with additional instructors and office staff added to meet
the increased demand. In addition to the Cessna Citation 500 series
and King Air Model 200 training courses, SimCom will be adding
simulator training for the King Air C90, King Air C90B, all
turboprop-powered Twin Commander models, Piper Cheyenne/II and
Cessna 421. Full 180-degree wrap-around visuals have been added to
the Turbo Commander and King Air 200 simulators, with other
simulators scheduled for the same visual upgrade as soon as
possible. Both Initial and Recurrent courses for each model will be
available, divided between classroom and hands-on simulator time.
In-aircraft flight training can also be arranged.
"We are very excited and proud of our new SimCom expansion plans
in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX area," explained David. "Our current
training centers in Orlando, FL and Scottsdale, AZ give our
customers two very convenient locations in the United States.
However, the addition of the new training center in Dallas/Ft.
Worth should really be attractive to those customers desiring
simulator training who reside in either Central or South America.
The new Dallas/Ft. Worth location should be a perfect location for
them, keeping travel costs and times to a minimum."
SimCom's training philosophy will be incorporated at the new
Dallas/Ft. Worth location. SimCom believes a low student/instructor
relationship is critical to effective learning and the most
efficient transfer of knowledge and experience. All training in
Dallas/Ft. Worth will incorporate this concept of very low
student/instructor ratios. The customer will be able to interface
privately with the instructor on specific areas of training.
Additionally, the training experience will be flexible, allowing
the student to concentrate on those areas needing the most
attention and work. This personalized approach to simulator
training is SimCom's signature philosophy and will be prevalent
from day one at the new Dallas/Ft. Worth location.
