Eurocopter is offering an EC 135 helicopter flight simulator at its training facility in Donauwörth, Germany. The simulator features a full-motion system with six degrees of freedom. It can display daylight, twilight and night conditions as well as any weather situation, according to the helicopter maker. Its mission spectrum includes rescue operations in snowy mountains. For now, the simulator can be used for JAR FCL 2 training courses, but the company is beginning the process of earning JAA FTD Level 3 certification this month. There are also plans to certify it to full flight simulator Level B
at a later date.
