ATC Flight Simulator Company has been in the business of manufacturing FAA-approved, realistic and affordable flight simulators, fixed wing, rotorcraft and Flight Training Devices for general and commercial aviation since the late-1960s.

The company was started by Joe Sidoti, a pilot and engineer.  Joe flew a Piper Arrow and understood the need to keep up his instrument skills so he designed the original 710. Joe contracted with EAI in Long Branch, New Jersey to produce the 610 to be sold to the general aviation market.

The product was a great success with the help of Ed Keins,  director of marketing and training, and with distributors around the US and overseas (like ETA, owned and operated by Bob Mitchelson) ATC sold hundreds of the tabletop 610 to individuals ,flight schools and airlines so their flight engineers could maintain instrument proficiency.
