Embry-Riddle’s Fleet of Training Aircraft and Simulators Sharpens Every Pilot’s Skills – On the Ground and In The Air
Learning to fly like a pro means state-of-the-art training and flying the best aircraft. Embry-Riddle’s Fleet of aircraft empowers our training program with a proven, diverse array of quality planes maintained to operate at peak efficiency for optimal training effectiveness and safety.
- Diamond Next Generation Diesel Twin (DA42 NG)
The DA42 NG incorporates an all-carbon / glass fiber airframe with Austro twin turbo-diesel AE300 engines equipped with FADEC. A perfect fit for our high density altitude training environment. The fully integrated GFC700 autopilot with Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) along with the Garmin G1000 glass cockpit gives our graduates the upper hand when moving ahead in their careers. We now fly four DA42 NGs at Embry-Riddle Prescott.
- Cessna Skyhawk Garmin G1000 (172S Nav III)
A fully equipped aircraft with the Garmin G1000 flight avionics suite. These aircraft provides our students with the ultimate situational awareness and safety. This 180 HP, single-engine, high-wing aircraft is the primary trainer at the Prescott Campus also incorporates Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcasting (ADS-B) providing our pilots with the location of all surrounding aircraft. The Embry-Riddle Prescott fleet includes sixteen Cessna 172s.
- Super Decathlon (8KCAB)
The American Champion Super Decathlon 8KCAB, is utilized primarily as our extreme attitude upset recovery trainer. The proven ability of this 180 HP, single-engine, tailwheel aircraft is ideal for teaching student pilots how to safely recover from extreme attitudes and spins. Also, allowing us to look at Embry-Riddle Prescott with a slightly different perspective!
- Cessna 150
The success of the 8-time National Champion Golden Eagles Flight Team relies not only on the contestants, but the team’s two Cessna 150 aircraft. The upgraded 150 horse-power engine allows for exceptional performance at Prescott’s high elevation while the 40 degree flap configuration and slow speed handling tailors perfectly to the team’s Short Field and Power Off landing events.
- The Robinson R22
Universal Helicopters utilizes Robinson R22 Beta II helicopters for primary flight training. No other helicopter in its class can match its speed, reliability, affordable price, and low operating costs. The R22 has fewer accidents due to aircraft or engine failure than other helicopters, and Robinson's commitment to the highest quality in design, materials, and craftsmanship make it the enduring choice for flight training.
- The Robinson R44
Universal Helicopters utilizes Robinson R44 Raven II helicopter for commercial, instrument and flight instructor training. The R44 delivers the performance and speed of a much more expensive turbine helicopter with the reliability and affordability of the Lycoming IO540.
