Ascent Aviation Professional Use Flight Simulator

X-Plane for Professional-Use is the world’s foremost general-purpose flight simulator. It Has allowed us to build a simulator that has direct UNIFORMITY to our fleet. Since a lot of the flight sims out there do not yet have the brand new touch screen garmin model avionics such as the 650, the gnx 375, and the gnc 355, we built one that does so that it is exactly as if you are flying one of the planes in our fleet!

  • Licensed for commercial Use
  • Red Bird Alloy Controls
  • Full 6 pack and 2 VORS as well as RPM gauge
  • GMA-345 AUDIO PANEL (Just like the real thing)
  • GTN 650 identical to the ones in the airplanes with the same functionality
