Japanese operator Nakanihon Air has taken delivery of a new Entrol H39 simulator based on the AW139 at its training facility in Nagoya. This simulator, certified at FTD Level 5, is the first simulator that Entrol has installed in the Asian country.
The H39 features a glass cockpit based on the Primus Epic system. It also possesses a six TV visual system where pilots can fly through the worldwide terrain scenery and the customised Japanese airport database that is included In the simulator. The H39 is equipped with Entrol's latest technology, such as a control loading system with digital motors and Entrol's sensing board technology.
Nakanihon Air will use the H39 simulator for both pilot and maintenance technician training.
“Nakanihon Air has been one of the leaders in the air ambulance sector for over 30 years. Last year, Intercraft was asked by Nakanihon Air to introduce flight training devices for mechanics. Unlike FTDs for pilot training, mechanic FTDs require mechanical replication, such as maintenance screens. Considering this, Entrol has proven to be a suitable provider since it has considered all these requirements. We believe this is a perfect match,” explains Akiko Suzuki, Intercraft's manager.
Due to the COVID situation, this simulator has been remotely installed by Intercraft staff. This has been possible thanks to the straightforward installation of Entrol simulators and the training given remotely to their support team.
