"My experience with the tarbes 7 AATD was extremely satisfying. It puts you in the airplane and it flies like the airplane. Scenarios that are contributing causes to aircraft accidents are executed within the familiar environment of a TBM cockpit so the pilot achieves a positive transfer of knowledge. Bottom line, this device is a winner."

"I was at KGON to pick up my B model that I hadn't flown in the past three weeks. The one-G tarbes 7 AATD had just been powered up and I was offered the opportunity to fly it. I flew around just to get the feel of it and then did an approach. I was right at home. The yoke with its force feedback felt amazingly similar to the real airplane. The external screen gave a true sense of flying VFR and the flight dynamics felt very real. When I finished the session, I hopped into my TBM. The short time in the one-G tarbes 7 AATD had provided me with a real "flying refresh" and I immediately felt completely comfortable in the real airplane."
