A Frasca Bell 407 helicopter training device is on its way to the Helicopter Institute in Fort Worth, Texas.

The Helicopter Institute in Fort Worth, Texas has placed an order for a Frasca Bell 407 helicopter training device (HTD). The HTD is an FAA qualified AATD and features a Garmin G500H display, simulated HeliSAS, Garmin GTN650 GPS, Frasca's TruVision visual system with three channel HDTV visual display system and a Newport, OR helicopter mission training visual database. The institute offers Part 135 training and checking.

“Frasca sets the standard in helicopter flight simulation products,” explains president Randy Rowles. “The craftsmanship, accuracy and cost benefit of the Frasca HTD, when weighed against other AATDs, is unmatched. The addition of the Bell 407 HTD AATD along with our four existing flight training devices provides a flight simulation solution for our entire helicopter fleet and enhances our training product.”
