RS Flight Systems has been selected by Starspeed Training in the UK to provide the latest version of the H145 D3 FTD3 F-light Line training device.
Starspeed is an authorized training organization that has been providing helicopter training for pilots for over a decade. It has selected the F-light Line to enhance its pilot training programs and give students a more immersive learning experience.
Maximilian Rommel, RS Flight Systems CEO, said: “F-light Line H145 D3 FTD3 is equipped with leading-edge technology that replicates real flight scenarios and provides a realistic experience for pilots to practice and perfect their flying skills. It comes with advanced features, including a cockpit simulator, flight dynamics, and original Garmin navigation systems, allowing pilots to train in a safe and controlled environment.”
Steve Godfrey, Head of Training at Starspeed Training, added: “Not only will implementing the new F-light Line training device enhance our training capabilities for our trainee helicopter pilots, through real-life flight simulation experiences, it will further allow us to extend the reach of our services and welcome new customers. Whether an experienced helicopter emergency medical services pilot or first-time civilian flyer, we look forward to experiencing the enhanced capability of the new device.”
F-light Line H145 D3 FTD3 is scheduled to go into operation in the second quarter of 2024 at Starspeed Training at Kemble Aerodrome, Gloucestershire, UK.
