Pacific Flying Club has the largest selection of flight simulators in Vancouver. Simulators provide a controlled learning environment with no distractions or delays. This is a huge advantage when learning. By building confidence early in the training process, simulators better prepare students for hands-on flight training. For licenced pilots, PFC's simulators allow members to upgrade their skillsets and help prepare for advanced ratings, flight tests, or interviews in less time and with significant savings.
Al Sim MCC 200
The biggest and the best is PFC's Level 5 Al Sim MCC 200. Based on a King Air 200 this simulator is also capable of emulating eighteen other aircraft. This technology, coupled to amazing digital displays is second to none for practicing and preparing for IFR ratings. It also allows students to take the Transport Canada IFR renewal ride in the simulator, saving a lot of aircraft rental money!
