Simulator Enhances Flight Training

Steve Ramroop and Judy Rice
Captain Judy Rice and Steve Ramroop



Epic Flight Academy worked with Frasca to develop its Private Pilot Course to include full-motion simulator training. The goal was to save students time and money. In fact, Flying Magazine and AOPA recently shared the success of the course. Epic students have also weighed in, including Steve Ramroop:

“My experience with the Frasca full-motion simulator has been an excellent one. By properly utilizing this flight training tool, I was able to accomplish my first solo faster and obtain my Private Pilot License within the suggested time and close to the suggested budget. I look forward to continuing my training with its help.”
