Finland-based helicopter pilot training provider Coptersafety has added FAA approved H145 Initial, Airline Transport Pilot and Recurrent training programmes to its FAA Part 142 training centre certification.

"Coptersafety has been providing H145 training since 2017 in our Level-D flight simulators and first-class training centre. We are pleased to announce that we are continuing to expand our FAA approved training programmes to include H145 Initial, Airline Transport Pilot and Recurrent training offerings," says Matt Presnal, chief theoretical knowledge instructor.

Coptersafety is an independent helicopter pilot training provider for commercial, government and private organisations located at Helsinki International airport. Two years ago, it initially received its FAA approval as a Part 142 training centre, making it the first independent international helicopter simulator Part 142 training centre in northern Europe. And a year ago its H145 D-2 full flight simulator became the first to be qualified to Level D by the FAA outside the US, as well as the first H145 simulator qualified for NVG training tasks outside the US.

Coptersafety's H145 Level-D full flight simulator is currently equipped with Helionix Step 2 avionics. It offers immersive and realistic training features such as cockpit vibration, smoke generation, 3D clouds, night and NVIS/NVG visual scenes. Scenarios can be taken from known geographical locations and landing sites by creating scenes in a wide variety of gaming areas and fields of operation. Different visual environments in known geographic locations and landing sites can be customised by its in-house visual model team based on customer requests.

Pilots and crews can now book to train in the company's FAA qualified Level-D H145 full flight simulator for all their training, testing and checking, as well as NVG training tasks, among others.
