The simulator is a replica of the Airbus EC135 P2+ and offers an extremely high level of simulation. The cockpit is equipped with dual GTN 750 and features a vibration system. The six-projector spherical visual system offers a realistic training experience.
The high-resolution database with satellite imagery, mission scenarios, hospitals and confined areas will be training HeliCentre’s pilots.
Jeroen Peddemors, HeliCentre's CEO, said: “This state-of-the-art simulator enables helicopter pilots to acquire high-quality training at reasonable costs. It is fully EASA certified by the Dutch CAA as a FNPT III MCC training device, and it will be upgraded to an FTD Level 3 later this year.
"We have chosen this device as it fits the HeliCentre high-quality training portfolio seamlessly, and it instantly adds value to our ME, IR and type-rating training. Our FNPT III MCC simulator enables students to commence the best helicopter courses available in the market.”
