Pilots with type rating can train on it immediately without any adaptation time and without changing their working strategy. Flying the simulator is representative for flying the real helicopter.
" Pilots who have tested the simulator with us speak of the enormous potential of this technology for flight training and for improving flight safety," said Fabi Riesen, CEO of VRM Switzerland. "Ground-level manoeuvers that require a 3D display and high-resolution imagery, such as hovering and slope operations, can be performed just like in the real helicopter. These manoeuvers require perfect tuning of the various parameters and are now possible thanks to our VR technology-based training solution.”
Helicopter behaviour based on flight data
The VRM Pose Tracking System enables the pilot to operate the helicopter in the familiar way. The pilot's artificially represented body allows natural operation of control elements in the fully replicated cockpit. The electrically driven high dynamic motion platform gives pilots the feeling they need to fly the helicopter with precision. The simulation of the helicopter's behaviour is based on actual recorded flight data.
Meanwhile, one of VRM Switzerland’s simulators will be used for research at Zurich University of Applied Sciences at the Centre for Aviation.
