As some of you may or may not know CAE-Simuflite has decided to pull the plug on three of its oldest simulators.

Last week I had the distinct pleasure of serving as part of the crew on the last checkride and sim session to ever be given in the Falcon 20 (DA-20) at CAE-Simuflite! It was my .293/.297. Yesterday they pulled the plug and disassembled it to relocate it to its new home in Orlando as a part of the SimComm fleet.

A tricky sim as many of you that have had the pleasure or DISPLEASURE of finding out is a very trim sensitive and "BALL" sensitive sim!

I have had the great opportunity of working with some of Simuflites finest over the years in the 20 and can hardly believe its been 9 YEARS!!!! since my fisrt checkride in the 20.

Well best of luck to the SimComm boys/gals WE send her down with cherished memories and the warmest wishes!

Tex

So that's why they've been running adds for FA-20 sim instructors in Florida.

Wow. Waxing rhapsodic about a sim? What is this airliners.net? I'd be dancing if it were being turned in to beer cans, but it's just getting moved. Who cares?
