TRU Simulation Level 6 Cessna 172 AATD Flight Training Simulator

ATP's FAA-approved Level 6 TRU Simulation Cessna 172 Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) puts students in an ultra-realistic training platform designed to maximize knowledge transfer from the simulator to the airplane.

Free, Unlimited Practice in Sims Available!

Airline Career Pilot Program students can practice in simulators for free, as often as they'd like, anytime it is not in use or scheduled for a lesson by an instructor!

A 220° visual display wrap-around a replica Cessna 172 cockpit immerses students in a training environment that exactly mirrors the Cessnas in ATP's fleet. An advanced aerodynamics model based on actual flight data is paired with dynamic control loading, replicating the control feel and handling of the real airplane. This level of realism and fidelity makes it possible to introduce students to foundational skills in a safe and controlled environment, maximizing proficiency and the time spent learning in the aircraft through a more effective transfer of knowledge.
