Seattle, WA (7/26/17) – Following an enthusiastically received rollout of the Torrance44 prototype at EAA AirVenture, CEO Xylon Saltzman now returns to one-G simulation headquarters in Seattle for a much anticipated final evaluation by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the Swiss12, a new proposed Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) based on the Pilatus PC12.

Like one-G’s line of AATD models, the Swiss12 emulates the precise flight characteristics, instrumentation, and cockpit ergonomics of the Pilatus PC12. As such, the Swiss12 is a cost effective platform for both recreational and commercial operators of this aircraft type.

The Swiss12 project came to one-G’s Creative Solutions Studio as a custom commissioned project. With the vision of developing a device to fulfill the goal of completing in-house training and pilot proficiency for an air ambulance operator, the project was conceived, designed, and built in less than one year.

“one-G created the Swiss12 to satisfy the need for a feature-rich, model specific training device that is faithful to the Pilatus PC12, and has done so at a prudent price point. Now pilots and Part 135 operators of this aircraft have a new choice for training, and no longer need to rely solely on annual recurrent programs and expensive in-aircraft training to remain proficient,” said Xylon Saltzman, CEO of one-G Simulation. “With the Swiss12 we are enabling pilots of this demanding, high performance aircraft with a sensible platform that places them firmly in control of their training.”

The Swiss12 is available for pre-order now with official production beginning September 5, 2017.

one-G simulation is a Seattle-based flight simulation firm that designs and builds FAA approved model specific AATDs, and a host of other aviation related training products, including its proprietary software for use in pilot training and pilot proficiency.
