Oregon-based Life Flight Network has placed an order for a Bell 407 GXi advanced aviation training device (AATD) from Frasca International.
The device will feature Frasca's Simplicity software graphical user interface, electric control loading, digital sound system and flight and systems simulation to train normal, abnormal and emergency procedures in the rotorcraft flight manual. In addition, the AATD will include Frasca's TruVision global image generator with three channel direct-view projected visual display system. The visual system will include Frasca's worldwide visual database at base map level and a Newport, Oregon, helicopter mission training database.
“For us, safety and risk management are core to our operations,” says Life Flight Network CEO Michael Griffiths. “Safety training is ongoing and comprehensive, ensuring our pilots maintain the highest levels of proficiency. With the addition of the Frasca helicopter AATD for our incoming Bell 407GXi aircraft, we will be able to continue enhancing our team's skills and preparedness.”
