Features & Benefits

A scalable solution

From screens to training modules — the Vortex Advantage is designed to grow with you, whether you’re training one-on-one or entire classrooms.

Adapts to your training

The Vortex Advantage is ready to mirror your fleet: It features equipment-specific hot-swappable control sets and pedals. The three-screen option also rotates to replicate equipment-specific sight lines.


A sleek hardware design, a full catalogue of equipment training modules, and the world-renowned Vortex simulation "engine" — the Vortex Advantage integrates all three elements in a single plug-and-play training platform.


Select from a single-screen option, three screens, or five screens for maximum immersion and trainee engagement.
