A: The learning
curve and retention level in a simulator is about
93%, compared to 17% retention level in an airplane.
This is the reason that the airlines and corporate
operators rely on simulators so much. Secondly,
our simulators are six-window, day/night, flight
tested, Flight Training Devices (FTD) and Advanced
Aviation Training Devices (AATD). SimCheck
does not believe that increasing the cost of our
program to cover the additional cost for motion
is worth getting simulator credit for just four
maneuvers: stalls, steep turns, ground handling,
and take-offs and landings. In this size aircraft,
it is less expensive to do Type rating rides and
these four maneuvers in a King Air than what we
would have to spend on a full motion simulator.
We would rather do 95% of the training
in a non-motion advanced FTD and keep the course
prices down and pass these savings onto our customers
