Featuring a unique Integrated Cockpit Training system that guides you step-by-step through in-flight procedures and systems, PLUS with an automatic aircraft/panel configuration utility - this is one aircraft you can either just jump in and fly or follow the checklist from start-up to shut down!

  • Crisp clear 2D and 3D cockpit views with rollover click spots to access the pop-up Super 80 Center for views and training.
