Japan's Alpha opts for entrol AW109 simulator
The simulator will be equipped with the latest entrol technology, including a cylindrical visual system, an enclosed IOS and a debriefing station so the instructors can record the activities in the simulator and analyse.
This simulator will be installed in Alpha's base in Tokyo in the upcoming months.

Spanish flight simulator developer entrol has sold an H19 FTD Level 5 simulator based on the Leonardo AW109 helicopter to Alpha Aviation, Japan's number one flight training academy for the last 20 years.

The simulator will be equipped with the latest entrol technology, including a cylindrical visual system, an enclosed IOS and a debriefing station so that the instructors can record the activities in the simulator and analyse them later. This simulator will also be equipped with a high-definition visual database covering the nearby area of Alpha Aviation training facilities and other visual landmarks used for its helicopter training.

“We are proud Alpha Aviation has purchased another simulator from us to join its fleet. After having certification of the H05 from the Japanese CAA last March, we know this simulator will also improve the training Alpha Aviation gives its students,” states Iñigo Hernández, business manager at entrol.

Alpha Aviation vice president Kenji Saito says, “We have decided to order the AW109 FTD device because entrol is a reliable manufacturing company that responds accurately and quickly.”

This simulator will be installed in its base in Tokyo in the upcoming months.
