This simulator provides the simulation features required by military and civilian professional aviation academies, flight schools and instructors to teach and evaluate aircraft control techniques in addition to VFR and IFR procedures, aircraft systems, normal and emergency procedures that are the domain of other FlyThisSim® products.
Engineered to the be introduced in the first stages of a pilot's aviation experience, the TouchTrainer® FM 210 Flight simulator provides an immersive dual seat cockpit. It includes pilot/co-pilot intercoms, complete audio simulation, and an on-board instructor's station. The massive 64 square feet of wrap around visual display will keep your flight school students coming back for more.
Designed to be introduced in the first stages of a pilot's aviation experience integrating ground school, aircraft control skills, and procedure training immediately from the first instructional session. Use the FM 210 in your curriculum to teach primary and secondary effects of controls; the effect and setting of trim; shallow and steep, climbing and descending turns; torque and P factor; take-off, pattern, approach, and landing procedures; and many more options.
Installed in homes, hangars, military locations, flight schools and palaces. No one else provides a flight simulator with this much power or presence.
The TouchTrainer® FM210 is a high performance, FAA approved BATD flight simulator. It has a fully immersive, dual-cockpit, floor mounted design which includes in-flight coms, a fully integrated audio system, easily configurable flight hardware and all necessary assembly tools and documentation. Its breath-taking visual display makes it a true turn-key system suitable your home, hangar, flight school, academy or club.
With the TouchTrainer® there is no such thing as a generic aircraft simulation; this is all thanks to our unique FAA approval to use touch screens integrated with our SimAVIO® software. This enables the aircraft specific implementations of instrumentation, avionics, electronic flight decks, electrical systems, aircraft and engine performance, autopilot operations and much more. The TouchTrainer's ability to be highly configurable allows all of the techniques, procedures, and proficiency learned using the simulator to be directly transferrable to the aircraft.Download Cockpit Datasheet
Time spent flying the TouchTrainer® can be logged towards private and instrument training as well as instrument currency. But its use is not restricted to these items, the TouchTrainer® can be used to hone normal and emergency procedures, your knowledge of your aircraft and perform realistic mission rehearsal with live air traffic control and practice using your Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) as you would in the aircraft.Learn More
The TouchTrainer® FM210's fully immersive cockpit paired with our full suite of flight instrumentation gives you the best experience for training avionics and autopilot use. Some examples include entering and flying flight plans, loading and flying approaches specific to the airport you frequent or practicing approaches for future flights into unfamiliar airports, or practicing those procedures in inclement weather, to name a few. If the secret of instrument flying is to be ready for what is going to happen next, the TouchTrainer® is the perfect tool to master your specific avionics suite and be able to anticipate anything that may come your way.Watch Video
The TouchTrainer® FM210 flight simulator boasts a large and immersive 210 degree wide by 70 degree tall wrap around visual system. It's composed of six 60" full HD monitors and an unmatched advanced dedicated graphics hardware subsystem. This visual system induces accurate motion cues that give the feeling of motion without the expense, safety concerns, and maintenance and support costs of an actual motion platform that can actually produce inaccurate results.Learn More See it yourself
A completely modular cockpit with adjustable dual-seat and controls allows for instructors to demonstrate techniques and correct student errors using the flight hardware which is aircraft specific. The cockpit can be rapidly reconfigured to use yokes, side-sticks, vernier and lever engine controls positioned to simulate most types of single and twin aircraft. Additionally a removable central console is provided and instrumentation touch screens relocated to simulate aircraft as different and a Cessna and Cirrus aircraft.
Truly Simulate Beech, Cessna, Commander, Corvalis, Cirrus, Diamond, Piper, Rockwell and Mooney aircraft with Analog, Aspen, Avidyne, G500, G1000 and Perspective avionics. Switch rapidly between them in just a few seconds. With our entire database of aircraft panels and airplanes unleashed, the double seat FM 210 is the queen of the hill.Download Cockpit Datasheet Watch Video
Boasting a high quality Bose speaker system along with dual headset communications connectivity, the TouchTrainer® FM210 gives a fully captivating auditory experience to accompany flight training. The audio system provides everything from engine, systems, instrumentation selection and actuation and warnings. The ability to incorporate headsets to practice pilot/co-pilot communication as well as connectivity to a live, virtual ATC network lets the student get an un-paralleled flight training experience.
Connect to live Air Traffic Controllers who use standard phraseology to get your IFR clearances and control. An essential feature for completing IFR training and cross county practice.Learn more
Connect to your FlyThisSim® TouchTrainer® with your EFB loaded on an iPad so it can provide correlated real time movement, orientation and position data enabling real world training using the tools you fly with.Learn more
The FM210 comes powered by our most powerful simulation computer technology using the latest specially selected off the shelf motherboards, memory, processors and video cards with the performance to compute and draw 2.23 Billion pixels per second. This means the computer system is reliable, runs cool, and is maintainable, repairable and upgradable for the life of the simulator. In the rare case the system becomes misconfigured it can be remotely administered and serviced by FlyThisSim®.
Attention to design and the use of low power consumption components means no special power or cooling requirements. The FM 210 runs on less than 2 kw total and may be connected to a domestic 120v supply. Light weight components require no special floor strengthening or other requirements. TouchTrainer® FM 210 customers have installed their systems personally or FlyThisSim® can optionally professionally install. It usually takes them no more than three hours. With a little installation work our TouchTrainer® FM 210 can be installed in a room with a standard 30" door.

While FTS green is dedicated to displaying instrumentation and providing in cockpit audio, the FTS Black's mission is to push 2,160,000,000 pixels per second generated by six instances of X plane running concurrently to 6 HD screens. Powered by the latest i7 driving the widest PCI bus available and 3 monster NVIDIA graphics cards this dedicated image generator is the is the only device that can provide smooth, accurate visual simulation to our highest fidelity simulators.
FlyThisSim® TouchTrainers® run on our native SimAVIO® simulation framework software and utilizes X-Plane's simulation engine for the visual system, flight and engine model. X-Plane provides one of the most realistic simulation foundations available for general aviation use. It offers an endless amount of upgradable features and add-ons and FlyThisSim® offers support to assist in finding and installing them making your TouchTrainer® much more enticing to fly.Learn More
Connect to your FlyThisSim® TouchTrainer® with your EFB loaded on your iPad.

Real-time weather, simulator correlation, providing real world training using the tools you fly with.Learn More
Touchscreen Instructor Operations System (TIOS) is an on-board or remote simulator control system enabling user monitoring and simulation control for all TouchTrainers. The TIOS is available as an integral part of the TouchTrainer®, residing on a secondary touch monitor instructor station or as an Extended TIOS running on a separate tablet wirelessly connected to the simulator.
All FTS flight simulators are approved by the FAA. This allows pilots and student pilots to log a defined number of hours during flight training or to maintain instrument currency.Details
