Grant, at a college, Australia


... We have just started using PS1 to teach aircraft systems, FMC etc ... To evaluate the possible causes of accidents needs a good knowledge of electrical/electronic/pneumatic and hydraulic systems, plus flight operations. Our work is funded by the UK Guild of Air Pilots and Air Navigators, under their programme to support first class students working on air safety topics in UK universities. PS1 is proving to be a rapid method of teaching much of the necessary detail ...

John, Professor at an institute, United Kingdom


...your simulation is great. It has been making its way through the NASA research centers and they are really awed...

Christine, Doctor at an institute, USA


... On a flight from Denver to LA ... The captain noticed PS1 running on my laptop ... he is a senior captain who had helped bring the 747-400 on line for UAL and also had been on committees evaluating computer training and simulators for the company. He and his crew were quite impressed ... The captain said that PS1 was a lot better than anything he had seen to date ...

Torrence, Doctor at NASA, USA


... I have written a coupla books about simulator checkrides for airline pilots over the past years and they have been well received ... What is needed is JUST WHAT YOU ARE DOING! Something for the transitioning guy to take home and play with until he figures it out. ... it seems that you have a handle on what is important to the professional airline pilot ...

Mike, Captain, USA


... Great sim ... it is even better than I had hoped! The sim is almost perfect for practicing SOP's (Standard Operating Procedures), irregularities and emergencies ... Thank you very much ...

Paul, 744 pilot at an airline, USA


... I only wish that PS1 had been available before I went to upgrading to the -400 airplane from the -100 airplane. It would have been a BIG help to me in that transition!! ...

James, 744 pilot, USA


... It appears to sound like your PC based PS1 may be just what the doctor ordered ...

Archie, Captain, USA


... Many thanks for your kind assistance in the past ... I got a phone call from our training supervisor who would like to express his appreciation ... he thinks PS1 is quite good ...

Frank, Deputy Manager at an airline, China

I feel that PS1 would help me and both company's pilots, that is Korean Air and China Airlines. As a flight instructor for FSBTI, this product could be purchased for all of our instructors. WHAT A TRAINING AID ...

Peter, Captain, USA


... Air Canada are using FMS to ILS Transition procedures ... In the UK we are starting to trial these procedures as well ... we hope to have it at Edinburgh and Glasgow next year. My copy of PS1 was bought specifically to help design these procedures ... I'm pleased to say that I was on board a 757-200 into Glasgow last week which tried the PS1 designed procedure and it all worked perfectly ...

Derek, United Kingdom


... I work for British Airways Flight Training and must be one of your earliest users of PS1 ... I have continually updated and now need to purchase PS1.3 ... keep up this fantastic simulator ...

Laurie, at an airline, United Kingdom


... a masterpience of software engineering ... I believe the FMS section alone would make a worthwhile stand-alone training program, which many airlines and training schools would want to use ...

Martin, at an airline, United Kingdom


... excellent program ... tomorrow I start my conversion to the 747-400 ... as one who is not used to the glass cockpit (ex military then Tristars and DC10s) it is an excellent introduction...

Jim, 744 pilot at an airline, United Kingdom


... very impressed with the program, the only thing that's slightly different (and I mean the only thing!) is the EPR settings for various stages of flight ... I'm sure your PS has a future in 747-400 training ...

Peter, 744 pilot at an airline, United Kingdom


... Love the sim, I use it to practice procedures and get used to airports I haven't seen for a while prior to every sim check. Thanks for a great product ...

Matt, 744 pilot at an airline, Australia


... I just got a job with Qantas flying the 747-200! While PS1 wasn't yet released to help me with the entrance tests, flying PS1 over the last 8 months have given me a great insight into the 747 which I am sure will help in the future ...

Steven, 742 pilot at an airline, Australia


... Glass cockpit EFIS knowledge is now part of the Australian Commercial and ATPL license syllabus. Several aviation instructional organisations are seriously considering using PS1 for this purpose. If you are starting out on the path of airline interviews and sim tests then consider the PS1, it will greatly help your preparation and give you invaluable insight into modern airline avionics ...

Sean, Captain, Australia


... I am very impressed with your B747-400 simulator. Only wish I had access to it when I flew the 400. I am now on the B767, ...

Wayne, 744 pilot at an airline, Australia


... from what I hear your program is almost a mandatory homestudy add-on! ... I started a B747-400 conversion course today and really need the program ... to cope with all the wizardry involved. ... Everyone in Qantas who hasn't flown glass uses or needs this program to make life easier and less stressful! ...

Ian, 744 pilot at an airline, Australia


... wonderful simulation package! ... I'll be at Boeing Seattle for my simulator training as a B747-400 First Officer. Your PS1 is indeed a big help in my preparation. I appreciate every aspect of it - both the systems and the flight handling ...

Jorge, 744 pilot at an airline, Philippines


... It has been very exciting to watch and see the improvements coming forth as this simulator program continues toward final production ... absolutely stunned by its completeness ...

Mel, Captain, USA


... Looks like something we should look into for training purposes ... I teach 747-400 Systems and am VERY interested in seeing what you have developed ...

Gary, at an airline, USA


... and practise the drills until I know them backwards and know exactly what other systems will be affected and what EICAS messages etc. will appear, ... PS1 is invaluable there ... PS1 has really made a big difference to my sim checks ... which is all down to using PS1, something that is fun to do anyway! ...

Jon, Captain, United Kingdom


... PS1 helped me a lot in transitioning from a piston twin to an EFIS-equiped jet. In fact, during the simulator training, at AA training center, in Dallas, I felt right at home, while other pilots with lots of jet experience, had some problems in adapting to the highly automated environment. You've done a superb job! ... excellent work! ...

Paulo, at an airline, Brazil


... The professional: B747-400 Precision Simulator from Aerowinx is not a game at all ... All user interfaces are close to the original and are accordingly complex. The simulator is a serious training platform ...

Aerokurier magazine, Germany


... The insight into the aircraft systems ... as well as the familiarization with the handling of comprehensive checklists makes this program an ideal procedure trainer for at home ...

Joachim, at an airline, Germany


... I am a retired 747 captain of Lufthansa ... To keep nice memories I bought the PS1 ...

Dieter, Captain, Germany


... it provides an entirely new simulation quality in the PC area ... EFIS, FMC, AFDS, fuel, electrical, hydraulics and pneumatic systems are simulated down to the last detail ... PS1 is no toy, but a serious training device ...

Jörg-Peter, Captain, Germany


... version 1.3 has amazed everybody I know in our flight planning and performance department ...

Stefan, Flight Planning & Performance, at an airline, Germany


... the PS1 V1 speeds are accurate, when compared to the Boeing charts. Even taking into account SLOPE/WIND if you enter it, and a WET runway condition, which all change your V1 speed slightly ... What does appear to be great news is the Fuel Flow is very accurate at each Optimum Altitude ...

Marc, Flight Dispatcher, USA


... Looking forward to PS1.3 ...

Douglas, Flight Dispatcher, USA


... I am a very happy owner of PS 1.2, and would very much like to buy the upgrade PS 1.3 ...

Pawel, Flight Dispatcher, Poland

Abdhulla, Flight Dispatcher


... I will enjoy your products and recommend them to my colleagues ...

Tony, at an airline


... you have reproduced the aircraft with great attention to detail. The systems reactions are extremely accurate and the whole aircraft reacts as it should. I have seen FMS trainers costing considerably more with less realism! ...

Anthony, 744 pilot at an airline, Hong Kong


... I have seen the PS 1.2 version and was impressed with some of its capability. However PS 1.3 seems to be more realistic and would be more suitable for my purposes. I design simulator programs for the B 744 and I could use your PS 1.3 to assist with the programs ...

Terry, Check Captain, Australia

Jean, 744 pilot at an airline, France


... in the flight simulator programs, PS1 is the best of its kind ...

Alain, 744 pilot


... Having started into the ground training programme on the 744, I can already appreciate the value of PS1 - even for the FMS programming alone. Although I do come from a glass cockpit background (F/A-18) there are, needless to say, many differences between the two aircraft types ... I'm sure it will be invaluable over the next couple of months and beyond ...

Neale, 744 pilot


... it is a glass cockpit not unlike that in the new C-130J. Our project is keen to get a copy for evaluation and assessment as to the value of such a simulation as a training aid for glass cockpit aircraft ... we are quite taken with PS1 ...

Phil, Director at Royal Australian Air Force


... Thanks so much for the PS1 program. What a work of art! ...

Curtis, Master sergeant, Instructor at USAF


... Thank you for the emails. I can't think of another author willing to reply to emails from the user. I really appreciate that. I recently ordered PS1 and have it running on my system ...

James, Captain, Instructor at USAF


... I am a DC-10 Captain and will be transitioning over to the MD-11 which is an all glass cockpit. Having never flown a glass cockpit before I thought PS1 would be a great training aid ...

John, Captain


... PS1 is really great ... PS1 was very useful during my conversion training from steam gauges to the glass cockpit ...

David, Captain, Switzerland


... my best compliments for the job done on ps1, it is a good pre-flight preparation tool for me before going on long haul ... Thanks and keep up the good work ...

Henry, 744 pilot


... This is by far the finest "true" simulator product that I have seen ... The program operates wonderfully in a dos window. Sound card, control column yoke, and rudder pedals worked without any tinkering with the system ...

Bob, Captain


... will be upgrading to the B757/767 this fall; your flight simulators (PS1.2 & 1.3) are outstanding and will make my transition to FMS and glass cockpit very easy ...

Larry, at an airline, USA


... I'm amazed at the level of technical detail that you have built into this software. I instruct FedEx students in the Airbus ... One of our most difficult tasks for pilots new to glass is helping them to understand the FMS. This program appears to be the first I've seen that offers the level of detail that would make it entirely relevant for this purpose ...

Alan, Captain, USA


... have given a demonstration of PS1 to the two Heads of Civil Aviation section, here at VEGA. They were extremely impressed ... One of them used to design the full-motion sims for Rediffusion and he could not believe the amount of accuracy and detail ... They both said that it is by far the most realistic and versatile heavy jet simulator available on the PC ...

Mark, Senior Air Traffic Engineer, United Kingdom


... received PS13 this week ... what I've seen so far proves once again you did a great job. I've concentrated on TCAS until now: a MAGNIFICENT learning tool for controllers. I intend to suggest my management to buy a copy to be used as demos at our training school! ...

Michel, Controller, Belgium


... I'm looking forward to getting a copy of the program ...

Charlotte, Controller & FAA Special Assistant, USA


... Your program is superb ...

Mischa, Controller, Germany


... Congratulations und thank you for all the new features in version 1.2c ... great work ...

Michael, Controller, Germany


... congratulations on an excellent product ...

Peter, Controller, Australia


... congratulate you on the remarkable job you've done ... At a meeting yesterday at Minneapolis Center, a couple of managers were talking about a near-miss and TCAS. Neither of them had seen TCAS in operation. I used PS1 to demonstrate what the pilot sees, they were very impressed. Thank you for all your hard work ...

Sirraj, Software Maintenance, FAA, USA


... A friend of mine, who also has PS1.2 recently had interviews with Cathay Pacific ... When he was doing his flight test in the 747-400 simulator, the testing officer asked him 3 times if he had previously flown 747's! My friend said it was just like flying PS1.2 and that the testing officer said he flew it better than some of their first officers! Needless to say he got the job ...

Rob, Flight Instructor, Australia


... With 3 years of teaching the Learjet for FlightSafety Intl., I can only say that I wish I had a simulator of PS1's quality to use with my clients in training ... Programs like PS1 teach not only aircraft specific systems and operating techniques, they teach habits. Transitioning to glass cockpit aircraft is not easy for many pilots. PS1 allows new pilots to practice good habits and techniques so they can "think ahead" of the aircraft ...

Rich, Flight Instructor


... I really enjoy your program. I am a flight instructor and flight school owner and during our theory lessons on aircraft system we use your program to explain the different functions ...

Marcel, Flight Instructor


... have 4 exams left to sit for my ATPL. Using your simulator has been a godsend in terms of getting to know the basic Boeing systems setup ... Trying to gather what color changes to what and how the MCP works in relation to the FMC and CDU's, is almost impossible to do by reading alone ...

Luke


... graduated Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University here in Prescott, Arizona and am slowly working my way up the food chain to the airlines ... I'm a Comm. AMEL w/ Inst and I just finished a ground school for the 747-400 systems ... PS1 helped me to get an A in that one! ...

Scott


... I have just recently sat the UK Airline transport licence examinations and I would just like mention how great PS1 has been in understanding EFIS. Part of the ATPL syllabus is EFIS and I was amazed during my studying how familiar everthing was due to my experince with PS1. ... After the exam ... people thought I'd flown the 747 before!!! ... The great thing about PS1 is that you can actually see many of the systems you learn about on paper actually working and functioning like the real thing ...

Philip


...... as a 20 year veteran of the other side of the flight deck door (the side that makes the coffee for the flight crew to drink) I have been using PS1 to start to understand some of what happens up the sharp end ...

Tim, Flight Attendant


... My initial concept is for pilots who have been looking at analog navigation indicators all their flying life, to get some experience (practice) with the Glass. ... Your PS1 was highly recommended by a friend ...

Steve, Engineering Director at an airline, USA


... PS1 is a beautiful simulator! I'm an avionics technician and this has taught me more about modern FMC and autopilot systems than I could have possibly learned anywhere else! ...

Kevin, USA


... Please could you forward me some details on how to obtain a copy of your 747-400 Sim. I am an LAE at Heathrow Airport who was astounded at seeing your Sim at work in a JAL Airlines maintenance office ...

Mark, United Kingdom


... In class you have each small item discussed on paper ... but put them together in a 'system' and it's a little bit more complicated, ... you're losing the logic behind it all... and it gets very hard to see what will happen if some of those basic items fail! ... The solution? Grab PS1, simulate and see ...

Ief, at an airline


... I have the 744 Precision Simulator, a very nice program ...

Bill, Avionics Engineer at an airline, Netherlands


... Precision Simulator is ideal for my avionics maintenance students, and other aircraft trades, who are just starting their careers. Therefore I aim to persuade the Royal Air Force to buy PS1 specifically for technical training ... PS1 is a work of art ...

Les


... keep up the excellent work ...

Michael, Avionics Engineer at an airline, United Kingdom


... We recently purchased a copy of your 747-400 Precision Simulator. We are attempting to set up a free-flight simulator and are interested in using your simulator as a component of our system ...

Jeff, Project Engineer, USA


... We do hear that examiners are most impressed by the IFR skills of PS1 users ... some folks have a rigorous session on PS1 before they go for their routine checkflights (you can program a variety of random and preset malfunctions into PS1 to test your skills under pressure) ...

Ian, Avionics Engineer at an airline, Australia


... a few of my crew members are PS1 owners/users, and I have occasion to use it, and of course they talk much about the program and its workings ...

Mike, Maintenance Inspector at an airline, Canada


... Congratulations for the incredibly accurate simulator you did. As far as I know PS is the only simulator so near to reality ...

Philippe, Maintenance Inspector at an airline, France


... We already have a version of your simulator and are very interested in purchasing the update ...

Roland, Engineering Training Manager at an airline, United Kingdom
