Museum Receives GAT-II Multifunctional Flight Trainer

The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum has received a GAT-II multifunctional flight trainer donated by the St. Louis Science Center that simulates basic flight, instrument navigation, and spatial disorientation for student pilots.  The base of the trainer supports three-axis motion in coordination with pilot input and instrument readings in the cockpit.  The museum already has a reputation for restoring the previous generation of LINK Trainers to working condition, and will employ this trainer in cooperation with Parks College of St. Louis University and other organizations in the near future.
