ADAC HEMS Academy receives FFS approval

The German ADAC HEMS training academy has received European Aviation Safety Agency/Luftfahrt Bundesamt (Germany Civil Aviation Authority) approval for its new H145 Level D Full Flight Simulator (FFS). The new simulator, developed and produced with the close co-operation of Reiser Simulation and Training in Germany, ‘completes the portfolio of EC135 and EC45 FFS at the Academy and sets a new standard in the world of helicopter simulation’, said ADAC HEMS.

Thomas Hutsch, CEO of ADAM HEMS Academy, commented on the capabilities of the new simulator and what it offers users: “Besides Level D standards, the H145 FFS offers pilots the opportunity to gain experience in night vision goggle (NVG) flight, making use of the NCGs the operators use during their missions.” He added that the FFS will be used by members of ADAC Air Rescue, one of the larger HEMS operators in Europe: “We are dedicated to ensure the best training possible for ADAC crews, [and] partners worldwide can benefit from the same top-level training facilities used by Germany’s largest air ambulance service.”
