The Pakistan Government purchased two specially modified King Air 350 aircraft under FMS case G2-D-SAH and pilot training is being purchased through AETC CONS/LGCI. The Pakistan Air Force would like all pilots to receive the same training, to include a level "D" full motion simulator equipped with the Proline 21 avionics package. An extensive internet search resulted in three (3) companies that currently operate a level "D" full motion King Air 350 simulator: FlyRight Inc. located in Concord, North Carolina, CAE in Dallas, Texas, and FlightSafety in Wichita, Kansas. Only FlightSafety's Level "D" simulator is equipped with the Proline 21 avionics package.
