Flight Simulator - ATC710 / ATC610 - $600 (SE Ocala Area)

This is an ATC-710 (1970's or so vintage Flight Simulator trainer) which includes a DME readout, VOR/ILS Display, rudder pedals, crosswind selector, and other features.
It does not include a plotter.

Very good appearance or better.
Needs some electronic tweaking to operate perfectly.
The simulator appears to function well in many ways, however several components need cleaning or tuning to bring the machine up to spec.

When these trainers came out in the early 1970's, they were used for official pilot training, not hobby simulation and were considered the "Thing to have" !

The FAA use to allow people training for pilot licenses, to log instrument simulator time with this device - Not sure how the current regulations read now.

The technology back then was for VOR's, ILS's, ADF's and DME - No GPS type stuff is available.
Great unit to learn basic 6 pack techniques, scanning, situational awareness, basic emergency procedures, radio techniques (with the help of another pilot), and other skills that help make a good instrument pilot, before moving up to glass cockpits.

No visual available unless it goes through a complete retrofit.

Been stored in a closet for several years and powers up fine.

Machine recently had recorded 188 Hours on the Mini Hobbs Meter Display, but then was inadvertently left powered on for two weeks with no activity or usage and now says 520 hours.

A friend fixed 2 of these devices by simply cleaning the connections, contacts & tubes, and now gives some basic instrument procedure training to Boy Scouts, Young Eagles, Student Pilots, and ROTC Cadets.

This unit is programed for Central Florida Area including Tampa, Orlando to Ocala, and several places in-between.
Included are approximately 100 pages or more of copies of original documentation to help get "Flying" and some nice laminated IFR Low Charts for the area !!!

Have a nice portable stand that we could talk about !!!
