SimCom Training Centers will offer Eclipse Aerospace Eclipse 500 light jet pilot training using a pair of full flight simulators at its Orlando, Florida base.

SimCom, which specialises in training for business and general aviation aircraft, has announced its partnership with Eclipse Aerospace to provide type rating and recurrent training for the light jet. There are 259 Eclipse 500 aircraft in the marketplace at present, says SimCom president and chief executive Wally David, so plenty of pilots will need the training that's on offer. The training company also offers a suite of advanced training courseware for the type.

SimCom expects to upgrade the full flight simulators to offer the Avio NG 1.7 avionics suite, autopilot enhancement, GPS WAAS capability, and modifications allowing realistic training for flight into known icing conditions.
