Engineered to enable IFR, VFR, aircraft systems, procedural and emergency training with the best price/performance. The VX can host all of the aircraft we simulate with two touchscreens dedicated to aircraft specific instrumentation. The 100 degree wide VX's visual system is the widest available in its class as well as being fast, smooth and detailed. The VX is our most popular product for home use because of its versatility, low space consumption, cost, and ease of setup.
The TouchTrainer® VX is a compact, high performance, low cost, FAA approved BATD desk based flight simulator complete with all software and physical controls, screens, computer, desk, and assembly tools that is a true turnkey system for your home, hangar or flight school. With a total of five screens, three for the visual and two for instrumentation, you can maintain situational awareness without having to share a screen with the outside view. The TouchTrainer® VX is the perfect tool to keep you confident and a safe pilot. The simulator enables you to practice emergency training, mission rehersal, and procedure training, increasing your proficiency before getting into your airplane.
The TouchTrainer® can simulate more than 125 individual aircraft, avionics, autopilot and systems combinations. This means performance, procedures and proficiency learned in the TouchTrainer® is directly transferrable to the aircraft. With the TouchTrainer® there is no such thing as generic aircraft simulation or performance.Download Cockpit Datasheet
Enables logging of 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 from Pilot Edge and practice using your Electronic Flight Bags (EFB) as you would in the aircraft.Learn More
The FTS TouchTrainer® VX gives you instrumentation, PFD, MFD and avionics simulations ready to enter and fly flight plans, load and fly approaches including missed approaches buy hand, flight director or fully coupled. Our custom autopilots enable you to use the same button selections and sequences found in your aircraft. The secret of instrument flying is to be ready for what is going to happen next. Use the TouchTrainer® to master your avionics and anticipate the future.Watch Video
The TouchTrainer® VX sports a large 100 degree wraparound visual composed of three 24" high-definition monitors and dedicated graphics hardware. A continuous horizon has been created by accounting for the thickness in monitor bezels so they are no more annoying than the window posts in your aircraft. The VX displays incredible ground detail, sky and weather smoothly with the 60Hz screen refresh required to realistically represent a flying.Learn More
Over 125 avionics panels, an immersive 100 degree visual system, and many configurations simulating Beechcraft, Cessna, Commander, Corvalis, Cirrus, Diamond, Piper, Rockwell and Mooney aircraft make TouchTrainers® a versatile choice. TouchTrainers® offer a wide range of avionics including Analog, Aspen, Avidyne, G500, G1000 and Perspective avionics, as shown in Cirrus panel configuration.Download Cockpit Datasheet Watch Video
Connect to your FlyThisSim® TouchTrainer® with your EFB loaded on your iPad. The TouchTrainer® feeds real-time data to your ForeFlight application. Real-time weather and simulator correlation provide real world training by allowing the use of the tools you actually fly with.Learn More
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
100 degrees of visual desktop, the VX display system provides a sleek, smooth and fast constant horizon visual scene to provide an almost real look at the outside world while you use your TouchTrainer® VX simulator. Try a TouchTrainer® with VX display in a darkened room and you will feel like you are inside your actual aircraft.
The TouchTrainer® VX is powered by our highly capable FTS RED advanced simulation computer. This machine has multiple high performance GPUs, a lightning fast processor, and the latest data bus interface to assure a realistically smooth simulation.
The FTS designed TouchTrainer® VX assembles to become a high quality stable simulator with table, TouchTrainer® Base and Visual Mounting Frame. Most cabling is internal and there are no exposed transformers ensuring a modern, refined, integrated look and feel.
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
