Michael Coughlin, CEO of Pacific Sky Aviation, spoke to one of the TRU simulator’s important benefits. “The high-altitude training is particularly applicable to customers who operate in the Andes mountains. For these customers, Pacific Sky Aviation is able to offer courses using advanced geodetic technology in the simulator’s visual system. Pacific Sky Aviation instructors are able to provide customers with the exact conditions from operating bases at altitudes of over 3,000 meters in order to evaluate the best approaches and departures given the terrain and aircraft performance. The new Viking 400 aircraft sports a 25,000-foot service ceiling.
