The Cessna 172S is the latest technology simulator to train basic flight simulation to PTS cadets before they start actual flight training in the skies. The Cessna 172S has modern features; it is fitted with advanced training software which enables realistic scenario based training; its sound system provides accurate sounds for engine and other systems. The simulator consists of the replica of the Diamond and SKYHAWK Cessna 172S aircraft cockpit.

Following the installation of the new simulator, the Commercial Pilot Licensing (CPL) training syllabus has been updated and eased the conversion from the diamond aircraft.
