Simulators help small-plane pilots learn safety
from Naples Daily News
Pilot James Gendreau flies over the landmark SunTrust tower, the downtown lights glimmering in the darkness as he approaches Florida's Orlando Executive Airport. As he gets close to the runway, Gendreau pulls the nose of his Cessna up and arcs away from his target. Then he repeats the maneuver again and again until he finally touches down. Gendreau, 48, didn't burn any fuel while he practiced. He was "flying" using a simulator at Elite SimCenters in Oviedo, which opened this month.
