Cirrus Avionics

Systems Trainer

The Cirrus Avionics Systems Trainer™ (AST) is a PC-based training device designed for full avionics systems learning, using guided lessons integrated with simulation to create a fully interactive training environment. The Cirrus AST has been developed for the Avidyne Entegra avionics.

Cirrus and Aerosim have teamed up to provide computer based pilot training for the Avidyne Entegra avionics in the SR20/SR22. This PC-based desktop training tool makes the advanced avionics technology easy to learn and understand. The program teaches pilots the concepts, terminology and procedures required to confidently manage automation in today’s technically advanced general aviation aircraft.

Because the trainer is a true free-play device, a variety of training scenarios and flight plans can be followed. This free-play element allows pilots to practice the entire flight cycle, with user inputs producing the same real-time feedback as in the actual aircraft.

The AST combines interactive courseware with simulations to introduce the glass cockpit to SR20/SR22 pilots in a fully interactive training environment. A series of guided lessons combined with practice scenarios brings pilots to a level of demonstrated proficiency with the aircraft’s avionics.

Courseware includes:

  • Cockpit overview
  • Single-pilot Resource Management
  • Systems training for PFD, MFD, GPS, Autopilot, Transponder, and Audio
  • Malfunctions training
  • Training flight scenarios
  • Evaluation flight scenarios
  • Free-play flights
