Airbus Helicopters and ADAC HEMS Academy, the training subsidiary of German aeromedical operator ADAC Luftrettung, have established HMotion, a joint venture simulator training centre for the H135 and H145 family helicopters. HMotion will offer a wide range of cost-effective training courses for helicopter personnel, including mission and critical flight training. Subject to approval by the relevant regulatory authorities, it is expected to be operational in early 2024.

"With the creation of HMotion, we will further enhance the training capabilities for our H135 and H145 customers," says Airbus Helicopters CEO Bruno Even. "We will combine the best of two worlds: the data and knowledge of Airbus as the helicopter manufacturer with the experience of ADAC Luftrettung, a world-renowned helicopter operator."

"The collaboration between our two companies will create the world's most modern simulator training centre for H135 and H145 helicopters," adds Frédéric Bruder, managing director of ADAC Luftrettung.

As a first step, HMotion will integrate the full-flight simulators located at the Airbus Helicopters site in Donauwörth and at the ADAC HEMS Academy in Sankt Augustin near Bonn. In a second step, in 2025, all simulator activities will be transferred to a new training centre in Oberpfaffenhofen, near Munich, which is easily accessible for international customers with Munich International airport close by.
