Designed to help maintain your IFR proficiency, this lifelike desktop flight simulator provides an arena to practice instrument skills and procedures, for about the cost of an hours dual flight.
Fly On Top, maintain your instrument proficiency. Select from ten aircraft and define your flight conditions with unlimited options. Challenge yourself with all the hard-IFR weather, systems malfunctions, and engine failures you can cope wth. Fly progressively more demanding situations. Venture outside the narrow channels of your training days to get more out of your instrument ticket. On Top includes an accurate rending of ten aircraft: Cessna 172P Skyhawk, Cessna 182R Skylane, Cessna 182R Skylane RG, Piper PA-28-161 Warrior II, Piper PA-28R-201 Arrow IV, Lancair Columbia 300, Mooney MSE, Beech Bonanza V-35, Beech Baron 58 Twin, Beech 1900 Twin Turboprop. Each aircraft is flexible in the panel - choose an HI or HSI, an ADF or RMI, add a moving map or GPS, an attitude indicator or flight director. Fly any approach in the world with the worldwide database. Keep yourself surprised by programming variability into the weather. Set up conditions that improve, deteriorate, or change randomly to add unpredictable turbulence, ceilings, clouds, and winds. Set failures up randomly or within a preset delay range to maximize your emergency procedures training. Complete flight information is recorded every time you fly and displayed graphically in overhead and profile views, letting you save and replay these flights for later evaluation, or re-fly portions of the flight under different conditions. On Top supports dual-monitor computer stations. This means that when you run an extended desktop, in Windows, On Top can display any of the setup; windows on one monitor, while the other monitor displays the airplane's cockpit. Instructors benefit by being able to monitor and conduct the flight as it happens, without interrupting it to make setup changes, and individuals benefit by not having to interrupt their flight to check progress or make changes.
