Daher announced SIMCOM designation as new factory-approved training organization for Kodiak 100 and Kodiak 900 turboprop-powered aircraft, with courses beginning next month at SIMCOM Scottsdale, Arizona training center. As part of the agreement with Daher, SIMCOM is installing a fixed-based Kodiak flight simulator – built by Frasca International – at its Scottsdale facility. In addition to courses provided for new and current owners/operators, training also will be tailored for Kodiak users in this multi-role aircraft’s special mission applications.

Nicolas Chabbert, the Senior Vice President of Daher’s Aircraft Division and the CEO of Kodiak Aircraft, commented: “Our decision was based on several factors, including SIMCOM’s 24-year relationship with Daher for our TBM turboprop-powered aircraft product line, and its resources to provide top-level training in adding the Kodiak to its portfolio.” 

Eric Hinson, the SIMCOM CEO, said: “We’re proud to be Daher’s factory-approved training partner for its entire family of turboprop aircraft. Our Scottsdale, Arizona training center provides a strategically positioned location for Kodiak operators throughout the Americas.”

SIMCOM has a long history of providing tailored training for owner/pilots. Created in 1989, it has become a leading provider of training for general aviation pilots. SIMCOM delivers instruction for more than 60 different aircraft types and conducts 7,000-plus training events annually.
