Advanced Training Device (ATD)

SkyBlue Jet Aviation owns and operates a six-axis full motion Cessna Citation 550 ATD at our training headquarters in Stuart, Florida.

This aircraft type-specific level 3 AATD was specifically designed from the ground up for the Citation aircraft type rating courses. This allows our instructors to expand on a unique, real world simulation in aircraft training experience. It also allows for instruction for cockpit resource management (CRM) and simulates emergencies and flight conditions that are impossible to safely duplicate in the real aircraft.
