The International Test Pilots School (ITPS) has acquired an engineering simulator based on the Entrol H39. This is an EASA FNPT II MCC / FAA FTD Level 5 simulator, based on the Leonardo AW139 helicopter.
Entrol's in-house capability made it a suitable partner to develop a custom solution for ITPS with features for test pilot training.
The ITPS, located at London International airport in Ontario, Canada, is an EASA Approved Training Organisation, offering flight testing for military and civil organisations, and training students from more than 25 different countries. It believes the addition of the simulator will enhance its test training curriculum, and complement the over 110 hours of helicopter flight time students undertake during the course.
