This will be the first simulator by US-based flight simulation manufacturer Entrol to be installed in Brazil. The simulator comes with dual GTN 750, a cylindrical visual system with three channels and extended vertical field of view for mission training. It will also have a vibration system to replicate normal and abnormal flying conditions such as vortex ring, translational lift, and turbulence.
Safety Flight will use the FTD for initial training, IFR and CPL courses, and mission training for H135 operators. It will be certified as FTD Level 5.
