Central Washington University utilizes an all Frasca fleet of Flight Training Devices (FTDs). This includes a G58 Baron TruFlite FTD with G1000, King Air 200, and a CRJ-200 AATD. All three training devices include Frasca's TruVision visual system. Central Washington University is a longtime customer with several Frasca devices in use.
