Eurocopter and Thales have agreed to install a full-flight simulator for the Dauphin AS365 N3 at Eurocopter’s Singapore facilities by mid-2012. The company expects to operate the simulator 3,500 hours per year, on the strength of the 170 AS365 N3s flown by 700 pilots in the Asia-Pacific region. The cockpit uses an “advanced reconfigurable concept,” which enables modifying the cockpit for different missions in four hours. The device will meet both European JAR and U.S. FAR standards. Among the possibilities are search-and-rescue, night flight (with night-vision goggles), flights over mountainous regions and low-altitude navigation.
