Crash Into Flight Simulator Company Stops Training

Associated Press - November 5, 2014 6:25 pm

The crash of a small plane into a flight safety training center at the Wichita Airport has disrupted pilot training on some Cessna models but efforts are being made to provide alternatives.

The crash of a small plane into a flight safety training center at the Wichita Airport has disrupted pilot training on some Cessna models but efforts are being made to provide alternatives.

A twin-engine Beechcraft King Air crashed into the training center on Thursday, killing the pilot and three people inside flight simulators.

The Wichita Eagle reports pilots use the center to be rated to fly a particular airplane or to receive recurring training.

The FlightSafety building at the airport was the company’s only location to offer simulation training on Cessna’s Citation M2, the CJ4, Citation VII and the three Caravan models. Training on other Cessna models at different simulation centers will continue on schedule.

The company said it is working with other training sites to accommodate customers’ needs.
