Our Simulators

We currently have three Diamond Flight Simulators. A Diamond DA40 and DA42 installed at our Lee-On-Solent base, fully FNPT2 approved by the UK CAA for flight training, which not only counts towards the hours required towards a licence but also enables much more efficient training and is of course not weather dependent.  Our final DA40 simulator is being installed at Perpignan in the near future.
