For now, the flight simulators are housed in an office in the WACO Air Museum until the learning center is completed. Once that building is finished, not only will they be able to add more flight simulators, but they will have an Elite Flight Simulator that will feature three large screens and more sophisticated controls.
“Once that gets installed and it gets certified in the new location, that’ll be a real resource for local pilots — already certified pilots — to come in and help renew their certifications at a very much reduced price than renting an airplane,” Slagle said.
The WACO Air Museum is still in the fundraising stages to finish funding its new learning center, so no date has been finalized for when it will be completed and open to the public. However, the four flight simulators are still available for use at the museum.
