Frasca RTD Advanced Aviation Training Device

A realistic, flexible, durable training device


The RTD is a feature-rich Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) that can be reconfigured for training in multiple aircraft models. The RTD features an  impressive, 200 degree, three channel visual display for unprecedented realism applicable for VFR or IFR training. What’s more is that users can fly the Frasca RTD (pending checkout) without an instructor present to take advantage of regulatory updates that allow logging of flight time for currency and proficiency purposes. Need instrument currency, landing practice or just a flying escape on a bad weather day? The Frasca RTD is your answer!

  • Cessna 172 (traditional) – Garmin430
  • Piper Seminole (multiengine)
