Virtual Avionics Procedure Trainer

VAPT is a suitable trainer for newly purchased aircraft, upgrading to new Collins Aerospace avionics suites (including  Pro Line 21™, Pro Line Fusion®, Pro Line Fusion with touch-screen capability, Flight2™ and the Common Avionics Architecture System) or for existing aircraft in operation. It provides a lower-cost solution to recurring and initial training needs by avionics and cockpit familiarization, differences training, crew resource management, avionics procedures training and basic flight operation. 

By using actual avionics software, VAPT matches the fidelity and performance of the avionics in operation, while using an intuitive graphical user interface in a cost-effective platform. This enables switching between cockpit flight decks or adding hardware functionality such as an out-the-window visual or a yoke operation.
