Entrol sells first H135 FTD Level 5 simulator in US
Certified as FTD Level 5, Sunny Aviation's latest simulator is the first model of its kind to come to the US. Its communications profile covers all frequencies to allow practice of a greater range of scenarios.
The H135 simulator will be equipped with dual GTN 750, a spherical visual with six-channel projection system, high resolution database and vibration system.

Denver, US-based Sunny Aviation has purchased an H135 FTD Level 5 simulator from Spanish manufacturer entrol. The simulator will be equipped with dual GTN 750, a spherical visual with six-channel projection system and a high resolution database and vibration system. The FTD will be used for ab initio training, IR and CPL courses and mission training for H135 operators. Sunny Aviation owner David Sungelo says: “The extreme realism of the entrol H135 FTD Level 5 simulator gives pilots more flying time in order to maintain and enhance their proficiency at a much lower cost than a traditional helicopter rental. Our simulator will also include the Garmin-based GTN 750 aviation communications suite and a Technisonic TDFM7300 radio that allows communication across all aviation and air-to-ground frequency bands. This means both students and commercial pilots will have the ability to practice different scenarios while simultaneously talking to simulated ATC controllers and emergency medical personnel.”

This will be the second entrol simulator to be installed in the USA.
