We have two flight simulators available at Jersey Ridge Soaring.
1) Triple Monitor Full Flight Control Glider Simulator - For Glider Pilots and Students
Jersey Ridge Soaring has upgraded both the hardware and software to offer a higher level of immersion and realism. We've increased our graphics speed by a factor of ten, and upgraded to a triple monitor display system over six feet wide! The experience is driven by the improved Condor 2 software allowing highly detailed landscapes and runways, and the use of peripheral vision to accurately duplicate the feel of soaring in a real glider. Our simulator incorporates realistic scenery of Blairstown Airport (1N7).
While glider simulator training does not count towards the FAA flight time requirement for glider licensure, it is a great way to improve skills and experiment with scenarios which are impossible or impracticable in the real aircraft. Plan and fly cross country flights without the worry of landing out, or try various emergency maneuvers. Also, during inclement outdoor weather, simulator training is a great way to keep in practice until the flyable weather returns.
Contact us to schedule time on the simulator along side one of our instructors. The cost is $75 per hour.
2) Basic Aviation Training Device (BATD) - For Current Instrument Rated Pilots
For our students who are also single or multi-engine power pilots with an instrument rating we have a flight simulator which may be used to obtain the recency of experience required to maintain instrument currency. Please call or text us for more information.
