DCT in Motion Tour

The Full Motion DCX-MAX Flight Simulator is a perfect tool for pilots and pilots in training to use to efficiently practice instrument approaches, along with improving pilot flight and communication skills.  It includes 43 detailed aircraft simulations and has communication capability. The primary objective for the DCX-MAX Full Motion Sim is to provide a cost-efficient and effective educational tool in order to educate new students and to maintain flight currency for certified pilots.


Why Chose the DCX MAX Full Motion Flight Simulator?

The DCX MAX Full Motion Simulator was engineered to provide the pilot in training the best possible preparation.  The DCX-MAX meet FITS (FAA/Industry Training Standards) requirements in order to improve pilot’s educational awareness and the satisfaction of personal accomplishment, while increasing safety of flight. It not only provides safety for the student, but also provides safety for the instructor.


What is the Benefit for a Flight School to have this Equipment?

The benefits are endless! You can use this simulator to sharpen your skills for half the price of flying an aircraft. You are able to practice emergency scenarios that you cannot simulate in the Aircraft, and you can log time towards your ratings on this Simulator!
