GAT-II is approved by the FAA

Environmental Tectonics Corporation (Amex: ETC) reports the approval of their GAT-II General Aviation Trainer by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as a Level II Flight Training Device.

Representatives of the Baltimore Flight Standards District Office (FSDO), Glen Burnie, Maryland, and from the FAA National Simulator Program Office, Atlanta, Georgia, completed an evaluation of the GAT-II, which was delivered to Frederick Flight Center, Frederick, Maryland.

The GAT-II was evaluated to Level II Standards as outlined in the Advisory Circular (AC) 120-45A, Airplane Flight Training Device Qualification, and is approved for use by Frederick Flight Center for training, testing or checking of maneuvers, procedures, or crew member functions listed in the Practical Test Standards for a Level II Flight Training Device.

ETC has recently introduced the GAT-II family of General Aviation Trainers. GAT-II's are available in single engine, multi-engine, helicopter and regional jet versions.
