Entrol makes first H135 FTD Level Five simulator sale in US
Helicopter and fixed-wing simulator manufacturer entrol has announced the sale of its first H135 FTD Level Five simulator in the US to Denver-based Sunny Aviation.
“The extreme realism of the entrol H135 FTD Level Five simulator gives pilots more flying time in order to maintain and enhance their proficiency at a much lower cost than a traditional helicopter rental,” said David Sungelo of the purchase.
The simulator will be equipped with a dual GTN 750, spherical visual with six-channel projection system, high-resolution database and vibration system, says entrol.
“Our simulator will also include the Garmin-based GTN 750 aviation communications suite and a Technisonic TDFM7300 radio that allows communication across all aviation and air-to-ground frequency bands,” added Sungelo. “This means both students and commercial pilots will have the ability to practice different scenarios while simultaneously talking to simulated ATC controllers and emergency medical personnel.”
A single-engine, fixed-wing plane has been added to AirCare – the air ambulance service of University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC), US.
