The Flight Simulator is located at our main base at the Owen Sound Airport.
Owen Sound Flight Services operates a Transport Canada Approved – Level 2 Flight Training Device. Pilots can log time towards licences and ratings while in the comforts of our sim, and can gain valuable skills and procedural competence for instrument flying. Half of the required instrument flight time for the Instrument Rating can be logged in our simulator!
Our sim is truly one a of a kind build, and we have made significant custom upgrades to both hardware and software in 2016. Integration with the latest in programming, we have brought our sim up to a new level of immersion and experience. Powerful processors generate amazing graphics, and custom built avionics make for an unparalleled training experience.
