Seattle, WA (9/1/23) – Ignite Flight Academy, a leading aviation training facility based in Lincoln, Nebraska, is expanding their one-G Advanced Aviation Training Device fleet with the acquisition of an additional one-G Foundation™ 1G-650 AATD. Ignite Flight Academy incorporates the Foundation™ into their current Part 141 and Part 61 Professional Pilot Program, requiring that learners utilize the devices during their entire progression through each FAA certificate and rating.

The one-G Foundation™ continues to be a popular AATD for flight training programs at flight schools across the country. one-G AATDs are specifically designed for high volume flight schools and have three components: the flight simulator, the Instructor Operator Station (IOS), and the web-based Portal. The components are seamlessly integrated, arming instructors and learners with a powerful training platform.

Bill Heckathorn, President of Ignite Flight Academy, is excited about the added value of this acquisition. “We are committed to providing our students with the most cost-effective elevated training experience possible, and the one-G Foundation™ will help us achieve that goal. With its advanced features, realistic instrumentation, and avionics that emulate our actual fleet of aircraft, we are confident that our students will be well prepared for their careers in aviation.”

Xylon Saltzman, CEO of one-G simulation, expressed his enthusiasm for the expansion of Ignite Flight Academy’s simulation flight training program, “One of our goals at one-G is to expand public interest in aviation through the use of our innovative pilot training tools. We’re thrilled to continue supporting Ignite Flight Academy as they effectively grow the pilot population using modern training methods, including the intelligent use of simulation technology. ”
