Frasca Reconfigurable Training Device (RTD)
The Frasca RTD is an FAA approved Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD).
The RTD can be configured as a G1000 equipped or analog six-pack, CE172S. It is the NXi version which provides for RNAV approaches to LPV minimums, VNAV en-route and the GFC700 with a flight director. The Frasca RTD uses real Garmin G1000 NXi software, assuring users they are learning correct procedures and habits as all menu selections and button pushes are performed in the RTD exactly as they should be performed in the aircraft.
The AATD can be used for up to 20 hours towards instrument rating training under Part 61 and about 90% of an Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC). It can also be used for instrument currency without instructor supervision. Additionally, the AATD can be used for up to 2.5 hours towards Private Pilot initial qualification.
