TRU Simulation + Training Inc. announced on September 16 that customers of its ProFlight King Air 350 pilot training program now have the option to train at home through its FAA-approved distance learning option for BE-300 recurrent training. TRU’s East Coast ProFlight Pilot Training center was the first to offer instruction on the new Pro Line Fusion equipped King Air 350 aircraft and the only training provider to offer an online learning option for recurrent training.
The new distance learning option gives customers the flexibility to receive 100% of their Aircraft Systems Training online, allowing them to focus all time spent at the training center towards simulator training scenarios. TRU is also offering its proprietary Current 365® training, which provides access to the online training suite throughout the year, as opposed to a typical one-time recurrent training event. Customers that prefer to complete their ground school training on-site in a classroom will still have that option.
“TRU’s ProFlight pilot training maximizes learning potential by empowering our customers to take control of their training experience, customize the program to best fit their learning preferences, and fundamentally reduce their time spent in the training center,” stated David Smith, TRU’s Vice President of Training Centers. “Our customers often have hectic schedules and the flexibility of an FAA-approved distance learning option allows them to accomplish a large portion of their recurrent training requirements on the road or from the comfort of their own home.”
TRU’s comprehensive ProFlight pilot training offering for the new-production Beechcraft turboprop includes an initial type-rating course, an introduction course on the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics package, and a recurrent training program as well as an FAR Part 135 training program. ProFlight instruction combines use of a King Air 350i full motion flight simulator and proprietary Level 6 flight training device for enhanced avionics training capability in a modern classroom setting that incorporates interactive animated courseware for all aircraft systems.
