Ansett Aviation Training is proud to announce the purchase of a new King Air 350i convertible to a B200 Full Flight Simulator (KA350/B200) using the Rockwell Collins Proline 21 avionics and qualified to CASA Level D FFS standard.

The simulator has been purchased from TRU Simulation + Training (previously Mechtronix) who are part of the Textron Group, the manufacturers of Beechcraft Aircraft. The simulator will be ready for training at the Ansett Aviation Training facility in Melbourne during the third quarter of 2016.

The King Air 200 and 350 aircraft are used in Australia by the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Royal Australian Air Force, other Aero Medical operators and a number of business and charter providers. In addition, Beechcraft will have access to the simulator and will be able to utilise it to support their sales efforts in the region.

This investment in additional simulator capability and capacity continues Ansett Aviation Training’s commitment to the Australian aviation industry and ensures pilot training standards remain world-class.
