FlightSafety International is expanding its helicopter training programmes and services with new Level D qualified simulators for the Airbus Helicopters EC145 and Leonardo AW139.
“This significant expansion of the training programmes and services we offer to helicopter operators reflects FlightSafety's commitment to provide a broad range of conveniently located programmes that our customers require,” says Steve Gross, senior VP of sales and marketing.
The Airbus Helicopters EC145 simulator is scheduled to enter service in March 2020 at the FlightSafety Learning Center in Denver, Colorado. While it will be used primarily to support Air Methods, FlightSafety will also offer training using this new advanced technology device to other operators of the aircraft.
The simulator that is being built for the Leonardo AW139 is expected to be completed by the end of 2020. It will enter service at FlightSafety's Learning Center in Lafayette, Louisiana early in 2021 following Level D qualification.
The advances in technology incorporated into the new EC145 and AW139 simulators include FlightSafety's industry-leading VITAL 1150 visual system and CrewView collimated glass mirror display.
