Training veteran opens new Piper training facility
As former training center manager for SimCom next to the Piper factory at Vero Beach, Inglis specialized in training for the Piper M series of airplanes, the Matrix, Malibu Mirage, and Meridian. When SimCom moved its Piper training operation to Orlando, Inglis on his own established Legacy Flight Training to give customers the option of continuing to train next to the Piper factory.
Recognizing the importance of modern simulators in transitioning pilots into such advanced airplanes and in maintaining proficiency, Inglis purchased two Redbird Flight Simulators and incorporated the flight training devices into his curriculum. The instrument panel in the Meridian simulator can be quickly reconfigured to represent any of the three glass cockpits used in that model: the Meggitt Magic, Avidyne Entegra, and Garmin G1000. The Mirage/Matrix simulator can be configured to represent the Avidyne or Garmin panel.
In addition to using the Redbird simulator, Legacy also offers in-cockpit training.
