The TRC 472G Flight Deck is designed to be used at home or at flight schools to train students using the aircraft and to learn them to recognize the function of all instruments present in a fully Glass Cockpit equiped Cessna 172 Skyhawk aircraft and to experience all aspects of flying single engine aircraft. The TRC 472G Flight Deck can be placed onto a table.
The TRC 472G Flight Deck Flight Simulator is so realistic that you can hardly tell the difference between the simulator and the real aircraft. Modelled after the popular Cessna 172 Skyhawk, all details are precisely reproduced according to the exact dimensions of the original panel and they can be found in exactly the same position. Using gauges and avionics modelled after the original, and designed to be driven from a Personal Computer, the TRC 472G Flight Deck is the ultimate training device for pilots. The TRC 472G Flight Deck is a product out of a complete line of training devices, and comes complete with the TRC Professional Rudder Pedals. An additional cockpit enclosure, visual and motion base are optional (not yet available, but in development). Training with the TRC 472G Flight Deck is extremely close to reality, but much more economic and fun.
The TRC 472G Flight Deck’s gauges and glass cockpit avionics are modelled after the original gauges and avionics found in the Cessna 172 Skyhawk. They are not projected on an LCD screen like other flight simulators, but instead real instruments which feels and looks are just like the original instruments. They are redesigned from scratch to be driven from flight simulator software residing on the Personal Computer, utilizing servo motors and digital electronics. The exact position of the gauges on the panel boosts the important “panel scan” experience, so that once in the real aircraft, your attention can be fully focussed on flying safely.
The TRC472G is controlled via Lockheed Martin Prepar3d and Micrsoft FSX and Flight1 Tech G1000 Student Trainer Software. An X-Plane version will be available in May. The TRC472G is built up to FAA/EASA so-called specifications. Therefore approvals can be achieved easy.
From the moment you start the engine the adventure begins! The key lock starter switch has the original 5-positions off, right, left, on and start. All switches are fully functional. Even the circuit breakers will pop out under control of an instructor, to introduce failures for realistic flight training. The realism of TRC’s flight training device TRC 472G Flight Deck gives you the thrill of flying in the real aircraft. Trim Wheel (with indicator), Throttle, Mixture with real leaning positioning (fine tuning) and the Flap Switch, with servo controlled Trim Indicator, enable you to experience flight training so realistic that you will become a better pilot.
The TRC 472G will be shipped without software, computer system and visual. If you require a turn key solution, including software, computer system and visual, please contact us via the contact form under the inquiry tab.
