Guardian Flight Inc., a Fairbanks-based air ambulance service providing critical care transport across Alaska, into Canada and into the lower 48, has purchased a MOTUS type-specific King Air B200 simulation device from Fidelity Flight Simulation. The Guardian Flight B200 simulator will provide pre-qualification, initial, and recurrent training for Guardian Flight’s growing King Air crew base.
To ensure that the simulation device meets all training requirements, Guardian Flight assembled an extensive cockpit configuration and training task list. Fidelity worked with Guardian Flight to rank the training tasks according to their importance and frequency, and to be certain that all tasks could be accommodated in the simulation device at the lowest possible cost.
The B200 simulator will be configured exactly as Guardian Flight’s aircraft, with Collins ProLine II radios, a Garmin 530 GPS unit, a Collins FCS-65 autopilot, and Raisbeck King Air engine modifications.
