Flight simulator developer Frasca International has received an order for an EC135 Level 5 flight training device from TKK (Tokyo Aircraft Instrument Co.), a pilot school and aircraft instrumentation manufacturer based in Tokyo, Japan.

The FTD will include some advanced features including a visual system with five 70 inch flat panel HDTV monitors mounted in front of the cockpit. Two displays are mounted on both the pilot and copilot sides to provide a large vertical field of view, and a single display is mounted directly in front of the cockpit. The device will also feature Frasca's vibration system, which provides vibration cues of variable amplitude and frequency to simulate realistic feel during flight. The system consists of electric motors and associated electronics mounted on the base frame, driven by real time host commands.

TKK is a repeat Frasca customer having taken delivery of a similar EC135 FTD in 2016 as well as a Model 342 helicopter device in 1995 and a twin engine fixed wing FTD in 1991.
