Frasca International announced that Bristow Academy of Aberdeen, Scotland, has received dual qualification for its Frasca Sikorsky S-92 full-flight simulator (FFS). The S-92 FFS is the first device approved under JAA with both level B FFS and level 3 FTD approval. A second FFS for the Eurocopter EC225, scheduled for delivery to Bristow in mid-2010, will also be dual certified. The FFS units feature a six-axis electric-motion base, TruVision Global visual system with custom databases and wrap-around display system.
“We are confident that helicopter industry leaders such as Bristow will be able to use similar devices to meet their training needs in a cost-effective manner,” said Mike Phillips, senior manager, Helicopter Business Development for Urbana, Ill.-based Frasca International.
