It’s time to get real about flight training. Until now, affordable training devices have been lacking when it comes to features and quality. Frasca has changed that with the RTD™ - Reconfigurable Training Device.


The RTD is a feature rich Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) that combines FRASCA quality with real-world affordability. The RTD can be reconfigured to convert to different aircraft models including the Cessna 172, Piper Seminole (kits available with analog or Garmin G1000) and the Piper Archer with additional aircraft kits in development. Its durable design and easy maintenance makes the RTD a reliable training tool. The RTD is much more than a simulator. It’s a solution.

Dollar for dollar, the RTD is the most immersive flight training experience available.

What do you need to fly today? The RTD is easily reconfigurable to support training for a variety of aircraft types including the Cessna 172, Archer and the Piper Seminole, with options for legacy or glass cockpit avionics.

Our Frasca RTDs are a mirror image of our 172S aircraft with autopilot. We are impressed with the innovative features including the ipad/cell phone interface for the instructor station.
